Senapati: In a press release issued by the Poumai Naga Union (PNU), the Office of Poumai Naga Union (PNU) fully support and declared to endorse the proposed Naga Solidarity Walk slated for July 28-29, 2022 organised by Global Naga Forum on the theme “One People, One Destiny.” The release mentioned that they welcome the movement which is based on “Inclusivity, non-partisan, bridging of physical and emotional integration, strengthening of brotherhood and oneness.”
It added, “When we retrospect the journey of Naga freedom movement history, we could see that due to lack of unity, our enemies had attacked and destroyed our legitimate freedom. We realised that since the inception of our freedom movement, there were myriad ups and downs, sacrifices and betrayals, unity and divisions, integration and fragmentation, the courageous warriors and coward nationalist, and we have come this far due to God’s protection and promised. We salute to those who stood for Nagas freedom by blood and sweat. The time has come for us to accept the reality, i.e. Unity is the best strength to defend our rights. This Solidarity Walk should be a wakeup call to every Nagas to march forward with clear conscience of love, peace and truth.”
