Imphal, July 29:

Dissatisfied over the leadership of Yung Aung as the President/Chairman of the NSCN-K, Lt. Gen.(Rtd.) Nyemlang Konyak Naga of the organization has been appointed as the new President of the rebel group which had abrogated the cease fire with the Government of India .

While the Yung Aung group said that the newly elected President has been expelled along with two others from the NSCN-K for anti party activities.

A statement by the MIP (in-Charge) of NSCN/GPRN Nikato Pilot Sumi said that a plenary session of the NSCN GPRN was held on July 28, chaired by the pro- tem Speaker Lt. Gen.Niki Sumi unanimously came to a decision to appoint Lt. Gen.(Rtd.) Nyemlang Konyak Naga as the Chairman/President of NSCN/GPRN and  Inno. Starson Lamkang Naga as General Secretary/Ato Kilonser of NSCN/GPRN respectively. This appointment was mandated and necessitated by the void created and the unbecoming of a President by the former president Yung Aung who has been found in direct contravention of the provisions of the Yehzabo on various account. The plenary session was attended by all the concerned members in NSCN-GPRN, it added.

The statement stated that the reason for the replacement of the leadership as follows –

1. The former President Yung Aung in violation of the very fundamental tenets of the Yehzabo and the conventions of NSCN/GPRN, acted alone without the knowledge or consulting any members of NSCN/GPRN and tried to change the official seal of the GPRN by dispatching a newly self designed seal to be used officially, which once received was rejected outright by all the officials of NSCN/GPRN.

2. The former President Yung Aung, yet again without any consultation or meetings with concerned officials of NSCN/GPRN, clandestinely established relationship and connived with Nscn(IM) in trying to subbotage and undermine Naga Sovereign Rights; who have categorically stated in no uncertain terms and signed the 2015 accord to be included under the ambit of Indian constitution, which is a direct challenge to the mandate of the Naga people as NSCN/GPRN is mandated by Nagas for the very objective of defending and achieving our inherent  Sovereign Political Rights and thus, the former president has lost all mandate of the Nagas.

The statement of the MIP /GPRN further added that despite, the grave watertight charges against the former president Yung Aung, the NSCN/GPRN patiently waited nearly 2 years, for the former President Yung Aung to come to his senses and do right by the Naga people but sadly, on his own Volation, deserted NSCN/GPRN and unofficially defected to NSCN (IM) and since then has been doing the bidding of Nscn(IM) under the directive of Indian government to sabotage and suppress our Sovereign Political Rights. 

 ”On all counts, the former President Yung Aung has been found guilty of serious dereliction of duty and conniving with elements trying to derail our sovereign Political rights. Once again, NSCN/GPRN reiterates and places it’s faith and confidence in the wisdom of the Naga People’s mandate and in the leadership of President Lt.Gen.(Rtd.) Nyemlang Konyak Naga to lead the Nagas towards our Goal.NSCN/GPRN will follow in the footsteps and visions of Our Great leader late. SS Khaplang in fulfilling the Nagas’ aspirations of achieving our inherent Sovereign Political Rights and continue to give support and solidarity to all Nations  who are wrongfully oppressed in their struggle for freedom”, the statement said.

Meanwhile, Meanwhile, another press statement by the MIP /GPRN  has stated that the outfit has expelled Lt. Gen. Niki Summi, Dy, C-in C Naga Army, Mr. Starson , Kilonser, NSCN.GPRN and Lt. Gen. Nyemlang Genrak Staff officer-I , Defence Naga Army for anti-party activities with immediate effect, that is July 29, 2020.

The statement said that the three had been expelled fir organizing illegal meetings without authorization from the party. Other reason stated for the expelling them are 1) failing to report to Council Headquarters even after repeated callings, Heavy misappropriation of party fund and encouraging the spreading of “ISM” and divisive policies within the party.
