The NSCN-K (YA) split earlier in June this year. Former personal secretary of SS Khaplang and self-styled major general (Rtd) Ang Mai was elected as the chief of the new NSCN-K, which parted ways with the NSCN-K (YA).
The NSCN-K (YA) had alleged that the new faction was a proxy of Indian intelligence to counter the Naga struggle. It said that the formation of the breakaway faction is an “open defiance” to the aspiration of the Eastern Naga public for peace and stability and that it is a direct threat to the ongoing struggle.
The group had also “sternly directed” the breakaway faction to disband and surrender themselves before the public.
