The group then goes on to say that it has been a long cherish desire of the Naga people to live as one people and to achieve this goal, one cannot bang hopes on kidnapping.
“We are sure that, the NSCN(K) leaders will prevail upon the rough cadres and prevent from re-engaging in any such anti-social activities in the future.
