The National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN IM) on a press communique on Saturday clarified that YS Mashungmi from Manipur, who attempted to walk across Nagaland for peace, unity and brotherhood, is a bona fide cadre of NSCN.
The group said that YS Mashungmi took the “so-called Peace March carrying both the national flags of India and Nagalim without taking the authority into confidence,” adding that “such a one man operation with sensitive political implication is not authorized by NSCN.”
It further went on to add that “his daring venture, no matter how patriotic it may appear in the eyes of the beholder amount to violation of disciplinary code of conduct.”
Northeast regional media outlets took keen interest following YS Mashungmi’s peace march which reportedly started from December 8 from Dimapur and had planned to end his peace march expedition at Zunheboto.
The NSCN press communique also said that, “security implication was also taken into account to abort his peace-march midway and is being debriefed to establish the idea behind his peace march.”
YS Mashungmi, is a Tangkhul Naga from Teinem village, Ukhrul district, but grew up in Dimapur.
