NSCN (IM) accuses Wungnaoshang of betrayal


Dimapur, April 19 (NNN): The NSCN-IM today accused independent MLA from Phungyar assembly constitruency of Ukhrul district Wungnaoshang Keishing  of betraying his own commitments and also had sold out the rights and future of the people. The NSCN-IM however, did not mention anything regarding the ambush on legislaor who escaped an assasination bid on his life few days ago.
However, the NSCN-IM statement made available to Newmai News Network tonight in Dimapur said, “Wungnaoshang has been playing around dangerously with fire for too long. No man who defies the wishes of the people, betrays his own commitments, sold out the rights and future of the people and also challenge the authority of the nation shall go unpunished. And therefore, unless he realizes his mistakes and mend ways, he can never run away from the judgment of the people. Similar fate awaits all others who tread the same road as he does. However, we regret for the unfortunate victims who lost their precious lives in the cross-fire.”
Mentionably, Wungnaoshang Keishing`s convoy was attacked by heavily armed persons near Riha village in Ukhrul district on April 15 killing 8 people which include 6 of the MLA`s security guards and two civilians. Keishing escaped with a minor injury in the incident. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack on the MLA.
On Tuesday the NSCN-IM said, “Whereas, based on the decision of the Naga People’s Convention (NPC), all the Naga MLAs of the so-called Manipur State were recalled in view of the communal policies and stand of the Meitei dominant State Government towards the Nagas in particular and the hill people in general.
“Whereas, following the imposition of Manipur District Council elections of 2010 against the wishes of the people, the 6th May 2010 firing incidents at Mao gate and Ukhrul  during peaceful and democratic rallies and responding to the call of the people, the MLAs including Wungnaoshang Keishing tendered resignation on 6th May 2010 that received a wide appreciation from the people. And thus, he no longer represents the people”.
The Naga outfit alleged that betraying the trust of the people and his own commitment, Wungnaoshang Keishing in connivance with Ibobi Singh, chief minister, covertly went back on his words and in the stolen name of the people has been deliberately acting as people’s representative. “It may be recalled that in March 2007 he had undertaking with the UNC at Tungam, Tahamzam (Senapati) not to go against the people’s interest and decision failing which befitting necessary action may be taken,” the NSCN-IM said.
The Naga outfit accused Wungnaoshang Keishing that he has been working hand in glove with Ibobi government’s policy to disintegrate Naga territories by creating a new cosmopolitan district. “This is intent to legalizing plantation of Meitei population in the Naga areas through the proposed creation of the new district, contradicting the issue of Naga Integration,” it added.
The NSCN-IM then said that Wungnaoshang Keishing  “who  has a treacherous mindset of an opportunist traitor” is now patronizing and nurturing the anti people’s armed groups such as United Naga People’s Council (UNPC) and Manipur Naga Revolutionary Front (MNRF) and valley-based armed groups to fight against his own people, undermining the cause of the “Naga nation”.
