Nagas should have the right to decide their future: Muivah

By Abdul Nisar

New Delhi, Aug 4 (ANI): National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah faction) leader Thuingaleng Muivah has said that Nagalim (Greater Nagaland) and India should co-exist, and that the Nagas should have the right to decide their own future.

On Tuesday, Muivah said that it was an insult to the Nagas that their land is kept divided by the Government of India.

"We have to have, the reason is that we have to have part of our land, you know Nagaland was divided and it is still kept divided by the Indian government. This is against our consensus. This is an insult, imposed upon us and we can't accept it. We are not asking any land belonging to the Assamese but our land, we must have," said Muivah.

The Naga leader further said that there were no demands from the group except that the Indian government should recognise the history of the Nagas.

"In real sense, there is no demand at all from our side. And because the Nagas have their history, very clear, and so what we taught them in the long process of the discussion in the past, even we taught that when the Government of India respects the history of the Nagas, on the part of the Nagas we are ready to respect the history of the India," he said.

The Nagas have been demanding a free state carved out of the northeastern region, including parts of Manipur. (ANI)
