The National Security Council of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim has taken thorough stoke of the situations around Dimapur since a crowd of reckless elements led by Azheto Chophy deserted Council Headquarters in the name of Naga unification. The Council has taken serious note of the relentless unleashing of terror of abduction for ransom,extortion, intimidation and even taking innocent life whose family fails to pay up the demand. It is very sad to say but we can’t help for the truth is that, these kind of shameful activities are happening under the patronage of the Sumi Hoho and the Western Sumi Hoho in the guise of unification. Threat and intimidation cannot solve the problem of fear and insecurity, as darkness cannot do away with darkness; only light can drive away darkness. So also hate cannot drive away hate; only love can drive away hate. NSCN still stands by the declaration of the 13th Jan. 2007 whereby our Chairman Isak Chishi Swu has proclaimed that NSCN strives for reconciliation and unification of all Nagas through forgiveness and that no stone shall be left unturned towards this end.
The Council expresses deep anguish and disappointment with the way the Indian government has been dealing with the present downhill trend of situation launched by Azheto group encouraging gangsterism and criminalism at the expense of the people. The crimes are now rampant; law and order has completely broken down after President’s Rule has been imposed in the Nagaland state. This has made things clear beyond doubt that Azheto’s group has the direct blessing of the Indian Government. Allowing an open illegal camp at Vihokhu village as their nerve centre is a clear example of India’s backing to Azheto group. Who can now deny the fact that Indian government has treacherous double standard! Therefore, such policy of the Indian government is a total negation of the long search for mutually acceptable solution through peaceful means.
The Council has been exercising maximum restraint despite utmost provocation and it is not a sign of weakness. But the patience is wearing thin and when the NSCN takes necessary step to save the situation in the interest of the people, Indian government shall be solely responsible for any fall-out. NSCN welcomes to set up an independent inquiry team from the various Naga civil societies and social organizations in order to verify all doubts of allegations and counter allegations by Azheto group.
It is time for the Indian leadership to be sensible and hold themselves from such course of senseless collision.

With the onset of President Rule in Nagaland all ethical norms is going the way of the non-existence law in the midst of Law Enforcing Agencies that respect no law which was enforced for the last ten years as part of the Indo-Naga Ceasefire. Shamelessly, the government of India proclaimed President Rule in Nagaland giving reason for breakdown of law and order. This has been ridiculously proved wrong as testified by the present situation, particularly in the commercial hub of Nagaland, Dimapur where the hoodlums and ruffians that has taken the form of a rogue gene but wearing the mask of Naga unification to hoodwink the Naga’s obsession for unification. Realistically, a cruel deception all the way. The president Rule for all practical purpose has come to serve the purpose of strengthening the unification hands of Azheto gang that has gone awry. The abduction spree for ransom by Azheto gang has changed the face of Dimapur as the city of gangster. But with the blessing of the government of India, Azheto gang is taking recourse to smear campaign targeting certain persons of a particular community who have refused to be their partners-in-crime. Fabricating false statement and other planted stories to defend their crumbling façade of unification is now the exercise in futility.
Ironically, the Indian Security forces moving about the town of Dimapur in a typical war-like manner is singing in a different tune now, refusing to honour the Identity Card issued by Ceasefire Monitoring Group (CFMG) and detaining such ID card holders for no sensible reasons given the still existing ceasefire between NSCN and government of India.
This is the new face of the Security Forces under the President Rule. But the question to be answered by the government of India is what is the actual status of the Indo-Naga Ceasefire under the present political scheme of the President Rule?
Going the way of the street rogue the Azheto gang has taken the life of other Dimapur businessmen by the name Kailash Agarwal of Khrishna Trading Company, Church Road Dimapur. An innocent victim has fallen prey to the greed of the money mongers. NSCN condoles, the death of Kailash Aggarwal and condemned the murderers who must face the wrath of the people’s condemnation in the days to come. Their judgment days are soon approaching. NSCN also express grief and sorrow for the bereaved family. Our concern also goes to the injured Brabu Bihari.
Ironically, this is the new breed of terrorists in the guise of Naga unification with Azheto as the ring leader. A bomb in a bag placed in the shop blasted away the life of Kailash. For obvious reason the security forces out in the street with seeming show of concern were caught napping.
This business group is a part and partial of Dimapur community and therefore, the civil societies should come out to condemn such brutish manner of targeting innocent persons. The security forces who are yet to prove their prowess to maintain law and order must show its true color. This refers to the lackadaisical attitude of the President Rule’s administration who refused to awaken to the reality of the situation in Dimapur for the vested interest of keeping the Indo-Naga issue in suspension on the pretext of law and order situation. But the Naga people who are master of their own issue will stand out to point out who is who in the present scheme of the deteriorating law and order situation.
Despite the lackadaisical attitude of the state administration under President Rule to the spate of abductions and killings at the hands of the fictitious group but exploiting the good name of NSCN to hoodwink the Nagas under the obsessive agenda of Naga unification, the Dimapur Naga Students Union (DNSU) has awaken to the reality of the situation to protest the unlawful and degrading activities of the pseudo-Naga nationalists who exercise no human thinking carried away by the greed fore money and power. The NSCN appreciate and highly value the moral integrity of DNSU to organize such protest rally to show the way to the society that they should have moral guts to stand up against the evils of the society and to call a spade a spade. Because the Naga society has to be saved from the scourge of the gang who have given sleepless nights to the business community who are very a part of Dimapur community.
Let the law enforcing agencies also take the courage from today’s rally and start acting with all seriousness to restore its image and credibility as the keeper of public society.

The Collective Leadership of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) expresses their sadness over the sudden demise of Mr. Iloihangbe, Member of

He joined the national service in late 1960 and throughout his life he gave his best, zealously guiding the younger brand of national workers. And for his selfless dedication, his life as a national worker has been exemplified in order that the future stands to gain out of him. He
was a man of integrity, honesty and sincerity.
God gave Illoihangbe many years to serve his people. With his death may God comfort the bereaved family members by giving them the strength and courage to bear the lost of the soul so dear to them. May his soul rest in PEACE!

Under the circumstances where the Khaplang group is desperately eying the attention of the Naga people to be accepted as a bonafide organization with interests that are focused in accordance with the Naga people’s political aspiration by misleading the people and the press on the non-existence issue of who carry the name “NSCN” to represent the Naga people’s political struggle. In the name of survival under the nomenclature of NSCN, anything that goes to commit effrontery is to be taken as nothing short of lying to the people. And as demanded by the situation where the Khaplang group bereft of any political morality is begging to be given the nomenclature of NSCN in order to come in line with the policy as prodded by the Home Ministry’s intelligence agencies whose hidden agenda with Khaplang group is to support Khaplang group’s existence as a counter-force against NSCN. And this is best served by still sticking to the name of NSCN. So far the only claim for Khaplang group is by virtue of its forceful but unwarranted support by the government of India to fulfill its suppressive nature governing the North East States.
In this context, the NSCN is once again placed under the condition where it necessitated pointing out the historical fact. It may be noted that following the steady sign of progress made by the NSCN the dark shadow of obstructionist forces begin its work. Accordingly, Mr. S.S. Khaplang and Brig. Kholi attempted an abortive coup and perpetrated the bloodiest ever massacre into the ranks of the NSCN claiming over two hundred (200) lives of revolutionary patriots. The NSCN Chairman Isak Chishi Swu was then away for mission abroad. The General Secretary Th. Muivah along with true national workers was plunged into chaos and uncertainty. In this way two distinct camps-revolutionary and reactionary came into existence in Nagalim.
NSCN, without the slightest hesitation have charge the whole turn out as a well-organized conspiracy directed by the Indian Intelligence Bureau (IB). They concocted the story that Messrs. Isak Chishi Swu and Th. Muivah are processing to work out a solution with India (within the Indian Union) and secondly, to do away with all the Konyak and Pangmi national workers to seize all arms to surrender them to India. S.S. Khaplang and his mercenaries became the tool of the adversary in spreading this sheer fabrication among the workers and villages, whipping up bitter antagonism. Khaplang was able to win over the simpletons and some weak-kneed Naga Army personnel to his lies. And very soon, hatred was fanned up to an unlimited fever pitch. Without delay he ordered them to attack the NSCN Operation Headquarters, and slaughter over 200 Naga patriots in the most sadistic manner. Following this national crisis, the historic National Assembly of NSCN was held at “Jordan Camp” on 17th Nov. 1989, and condemned S.S. Khaplang for his crime against the nation and expelled him from the organization once and for all. The Assembly on the other hand reaffirmed the leadership of Messrs. Isak Chishi Swu and Th. Muivah as Chairman and General Secretary respectively.
The media groups are requested to take this historical fact into account and thereby avoid creating further confusion to the people. The reactionary forces cannot claim to represent people’s interest under the stolen name of NSCN.

With “Nagaland State Assembly Election” slated for March 2008, the increasing tempo of campaign by various candidates under different banners is being noticed across the length and breath of Nagaland. As usual it is a game of one-upmanship resorting to any means to get elected. But in the race to out do one another there is also the tendency to use the good name of NSCN unceremoniously and giving wrong side of the story that NSCN is involved in the election. Such situation warranted the collective leadership of NSCN to make its stand very clear that NSCN cannot compromise its principle by participating in one way or the other, in the election conducted under the Indian constitution. Therefore, no party, be it NPF, Congress, BJP or any other political parties involved have anything to do with NSCN to get its blessing. What is of utmost importance to NSCN is the ‘Cause’ and therefore, there should be no confusion about this. The issue of the magnitude of Indo- Naga political problem cannot be diluted under any circumstances, come what may.
