Apex students’ body calls for rally in Delhi on Sept 25; says Nagas ‘will not compromise for anything lesser than what is honourable and acceptable to all negotiating entities’
Kohima: Calling it a critical moment for the Nagas, the Naga Students' Federation (NSF) has appealed the entire populace to remain united and "be steadfast in upholding the people's movement".
In order to "make the world know" that the Nagas will never part with their political rights, the apex students' body of the Nagas said that it will hold a mass rally from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar in New Delhi at 2 pm on September 25.
"History is the witness that the Nagas have fought valiantly as a proud nation and is continuing the fight against the oppressors to free Nagalim. Nagas have been gloriously waving our national flag across global platforms, towns and cities registering our determinate identity of being a nation," the NSF took to Facebook to make the appeal.
Commenting on the appointment of national security advisor Ajit Doval as the in-charge of Naga affairs, the NSF wrote that this "clearly indicates that the government of India is least concerned with the political matter of the Nagas, rather the issue is determined to be dealt bureaucratically and militarily".
The students' body also wrote that the appointment of RN Ravi as governor of Nagaland was not only "a tactic of shifting gear from political talk to bureaucratic strategy, but it is also a deadly military preparation to deal with the Nagas".
Making an appeal to everyone to come out to the streets, the NSF wrote: "Lest, India divide and crush the Nagas aspiration as they have done to the Khalistan movement, Kashmiri movement, Tamil movement, etc. Let us rise to the occasion in unison for our Nation."
