The National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) has taken a serious view of the Union Home Joint Secretary North East In-charge Mr. Shambhu Singh’s statement in The Eastern Mirror on Dec 13th, 2013 where he has “expressed his displeasure over the NSCN-IM’s attempt to ‘use his statement out of the context to serve their ulterior motive’.”
Mr. Shambhu Singh press statements were appeared on the local newspapers, The Sangai Express on the 10th and 11th Dec, 2013 with the captions “Delhi-NSCN (IM) political dialogues No immediate solution in sight: Shambhu Singh” and “In a democracy, all stakeholders need to be involved: Shambhu”. Therefore on the basis of these reports the NSCN had responded its position and at the same time questioning Mr. Shambhu Singh’s unwarranted statements.
It has been officially understood that the competent Indian authority to give statements on the Indo-Naga political talks would only be the Prime Minister, Home Minister and Interlocutor. Is Mr. Shambhu Singh above the Government of India (GoI)?
What is his idea about “their ulterior motive”? It will be a wise move on his part to restrain himself from talking on the Indo-Naga political talks.
Why Mr. Shambhu Singh never hesitates to point his finger to NSCN? He should blame himself for his unwarranted statements and clarify himself to The Sangai Express for misquoting or distorting his statements.
