The NSCN (KNiki )’s Sumi faction issued a rallying cry to all Naga tribal leaders to be more devoted and active in uniting all Naga political groups and the general public.
It stated that no solution to the Naga issue is likely to be reached unless the Naga people are unified for one common aim, regardless of boundary delineation.
Niki Sumi, the president of a delegation of Dimapur-based southern Naga civil society organizations, stated only Naga tribal leaders can unite the Naga people together, which will give the Naga people’s voice greater weightage before the Indian government for a solution to the Naga political conflict.
Meanwhile, Southern Naga Union, Poumai Hoho, Tangkhul Naga Long, Mao Naga Union, Maram Naga Union, Lamkang Naga Union, Maring Naga Union, Moyon Naga Union, Thangal Naga Union, and Anal Naga Union were among the delegation’s members.
“To achieve any goal, all Naga people must be united,” Sumi emphasized.
