Noney, Aug 11,
The wild imagination and baseless allegation of the NSCN-IM that UNLF supply AK-47 rifles to ZUF is a fabricated story which shows their complete desperation said a statement by the ZUF. The statement issue by the Secretary information and public relation said that there was a gun fight on August 7 at around 7 pm at Khumji-II (Lukhambi) near Longmai Village (Noney) between the NSCN-IM and ZUF in which a former NSCN-K cadre who was defected to NSCN IM group namely Mr. Gaibungpou @ Abung, Rajo Peyu was killed. The NSCN-IM cadres who are stationing in the village have been creating lot of problems and cause insecurity for the people. The Hebron camp had deputed so called Special Task Force (STF) numbering around 40 to assist the stationed cadres in carrying out maximum anti-social activities in Zeliangrong areas. The ZUF alleged that the NSCN-IM cadres have been involving in extortion of huge amount of money from different companies and agencies that are executing mega projects, imposing a huge amount of illegal tax from all vehicles plying on the National High Way – 37 and collecting as tax from the hard money of the general public in the name of Naga political movement. However, the huge amount of money collected in the name of pursuing the Naga political movement are using in construction of multiple gigantic building, luxurious houses, buying hectares of land in different cities of the country, purchasing costly and luxurious vehicles, accumulating wealth and spending on luxurious things, it added. The statement added that the NSCN-IM leaderships deputing “Zeliangrong” to fight “Zeliangrong” is despicable. Such policy of the NSCN IM is nothing but a desperate effort to sow seed of distrust among the Zeliangrong of which will be a futile exercise. The NSCN-IM leadership deputed non Zeliangrong and selective people to gather money which are collected from the various sources by NSCN-IM Zeliangrong cadres but at the time of confrontation and fighting the leadership of the NSCN-IM deputed Zeliangrong cadres which shows the worthlessness to get benefit but fit to die a worthless dead.
