ACAUT responds to NSCN(IM)

11th July, 2015

Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT Nagaland) has taken very seriously the press statement by the NSCN (IM). ACAUT Nagaland feels that the press statement is unbecoming of a matured organization which claims to be working for the Naga people. If one chooses to look back in time one can see that for any political movement to succeed it must win the hearts and support of the people. It is extremely regrettable and unfortunate that a responsible organization like NSCN (IM) should resort to threats and intimidation for tax citing their legitimate right to do so. However, NSCN (IM) must also see that there are other 7-8 factions claiming the same thing with the public having to bear the brunt of multiple taxations. Such insensitivity to the plights of the people will only alienate the masses from the Naga political movement and the NPGs will have no one to blame but themselves. It is about time for all the NPGs to realize to the obvious fact that Naga people yearn for unity and have a say in their course destiny.

It is therefore extremely important for all the NPGs to see the implications and urgency of taking the goodwill and support of the people for the cause of Naga Political Movement and desist from making attempts to threaten organizations merely echoing the moods of the general public on the pretext of sabotaging the Naga political movement whilst ignoring the real problem that is within as this would be the biggest blunder in the history of Naga Political Movement.

This is not the sole opinion of the ACAUT but responsible and matured Naga organisations represented in Naga Hoho, ENPO and NMA too have made the same stand and therefore ACAUT Nagaland appeals to all the NPGs to focus their attention on working towards unity and finding a peaceful solution to Naga political issue.
