IMPHAL, June 28 (Newmai News Network): To clear the confusion in the aftermath of the recent split in the NSCN-K, the Amammcht Region (Chandel) of the outfit said that the region is steadfastly behind SS Khaplang.
Chairman of the Amammcht region K. Steven said SS Khaplang is their undisputed leader who will continue to lead and stand for the common cause of the Naga nation-hood.
Meanwhile, the Zeliangrong region of NSCN-K expressed a strong resentment against the statement of deputy Kilonser of the GPRN-NSCN M.A. Felix which appeared in the local dailies on Tuesday. The Zeliangrong Region of NSCN-K termed Felix statement as “unqualified”.
“The recent press statement issued by hon’ble Kilonser Medical cum Political Supervisor, Southern Nagaland Mr. N. Panmei NSCN/GPRN had been official opinion of the Zeliangrong People and the NSCN/GPRN which can not be question. All are warned against such mollified designed which stand to create confusing by some notorious element and designed,” the Zeliangrong Region of NSCN-K said.
It said that person like Felix should have interrupted a genuine statement of the NSCN/GPRN especially a prominent national worker like N. Panmai.
“Felix was a notorious person who was expelled from the NSCN/GPRN Zeliangrong region in the year 2007 on the ground of misconduct and miss approbation of region funds. He is not a person of integrity and he is not accepted any were. Later, he approached the Khehoi camp of GPRN/NSCN and he had been joining the camp for quite some time. When his reality was found out the president of the NSCN/GPRN, S.S. Khaplang expelled him from the party. After the incident of expulsion the Khehoi camp continued to used him (Felix) for some time but there too when his true colour was exposed the said camp also terminated him from the party some months ago. It is also learnt that now Felix had been recalled by the Khehoi camp on his personal interest though his fate is at stake in near future. This region condemns such a confusing statement issued by a person of non-entity and without authority,” the Zeliangrong Region, NSCN-K said.
“Felix is a mere person who had never even seen the president of NSCN/GPRN, S.S. Khaplang himself and he is not aware of the central and regional affairs of the NSCN/GPRN till today. Felix is still betraying his own identity when he said that there was no follower of S.S. Khaplang in the Zeliangrong region. The reality was that he had been enrolled in Zeliangrong region in the year 2004 after taking a solemn oath of secrecy in the name of God and under the leadership on S.S. Khaplang though he enjoyed telling lies,” it alleged.
The NSCN-K, Zeliangrong region has the power and authority to punish Felix but for the time being as he is working under some certain dictates as a puppet we kept our action in abeyance temporary. However Felix should take notice that appropriate action shall be initiated in near future if he continued such irresponsible behaviour, the Zeliangrong region, NSCN-K said.
The Zeliangrong Region of NSCN-K is a vast area comprising of Assam, Manipur, Nagaland and elsewhere and we all repose strong faith in the leadership of S.S. Khaplang the president of NSCN/GPRN and there is no one to buy what M.A. Felix said in the region, the outfit said.
