Under the given situation, the Tenyemi National Workers Forum (TNWF) is faced with the national necessity to look back into mischievous indulgence of Dr. SC Jamir that brought terrible harm to the Naga national workers in particular and the Naga national movement in general. We hereby resolved to issue a press statement to set the record straight.
In the tumultuous history of Indo-Naga political conflict, there are certain matters that remain a secret but there are certainly organized conspiracies and plots we have to bring out of the closet that are closely linked with SC Jamir because he is one who bloodied Naga history and spit venom to all who are against NPC’s (Naga People’s Convention) 16-Point Agreement, not even sparing Mr AZ Phizo, the revered President of the Naga National Council (NNC), who led the Nagas from the front to declare Naga Independence on the 14th August, 1947.
Thus, Dr SC Jamir spared no effort to make roughshod of everything but stick to his infidelity to kiss history in his desperate defense of 16 Point Agreement, standing by his off-repeated effrontery that the 16 Point Agreement is the alpha and omega for Naga political solution. This is reflected in his last interview to Dimapur Today and uploaded on YouTube.
Naga people, particularly those in the field doing the donkey’s job fighting for the political rights, bewail the like of SC Jamir who have done every conceivable things to finish off the Naga political issue using the most repugnant policy. The Naga people naturally find his political ideas totally repulsive.
Delinquent person as he proved himself to be, he fiddled with Naga political issue as his personal fiefdom and put the bona fide Naga freedom fighters on his firing line using the most abominable weapons of destruction.
He was the last surviving Naga signatory of the 16 Points Agreement which led to birth of the present Nagaland state in 1963. The 16 Points Agreement was signed between the Naga People’s Convention (NPC) and the Government of India (GoI) in 1960 making Nagaland the 16th state of the Indian Union. The historical fact behind NPC’s role is mediator-turned treachery. Thus, this agreement was signed behind the back of Naga freedom fighters. Consequently, the 16 Point Agreement became the source of political turmoil that followed. Today, SC Jamir is meddling in Naga issue using the NNPGs to find Naga solution on the basis of the 16 Points Agreement. On the ongoing contentious issue of the Naga flag and Yehzabo (Constitution) he deplores the issues saying that it is not applicable to the present Nagaland state. This put him in direct conflict with the Naga political group like NSCN which is ready to fight on to the last man standing in defense of Naga flag and constitution that identify Naga political issue to the world.
With his inherent anti-Naga political movement Jamir made bewildering allegations against our highly revered AZ Phizo. He went far enough to say that AZ Phizo never talked about Naga flag and constitution. This smack of his sick mind and nothing else as only insane person will question about Phizo not talking anything on flag and constitution. Jamir needs to ponder on these following points of historical facts:
Is 1947 Naga flag hoisting ignored by Jamir?
Is the 14th August, 1947 Naga Independence declaration by Phizo without flag and constitution?
Is 1951 plebiscite without flag and constitution?
Phizo gave his life and everything for the Naga nation. Do Dr. Jamir’s allegations on Phizo qualify in any manner?
It may be made known of one incident when the then Prime Minister of India Mr Jawaharlal Nehru issued a statement in Lok Sabha wherein he expressed his desire to meet Phizo in India. But apprehending disturbing the 16 Points Agreement SC Jamir who was then Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) raised his voice against the proposal as he also prevailed upon Shilu Ao, Chief Executive Counselor to go against the proposal of Nehru. Nehru was politically conscious enough that the 16-Point Agreement was not going to be basis for Naga political solution and that was the sole reason he wanted to talk to Phizo. But this plan was aborted by SC. Jamir’s conspiracy.
During the height of Naga political struggle under National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) after the Khaplang engineered crisis, SC Jamir was at his game as a frenzied demagogue restless to destroy Naga political struggle spearheaded by NSCN. When SC Jamir was the Chief Minister of Nagaland state he openly collaborated with the central government in order to destroy the NSCN. He used NSCN-K leaders like Dally Mungro and Kitovi Zhimomi and their boys like his private army to target NSCN and its public supporters. The formation of Nagaland Youth Liberation Front (NYLF) 6th Brigade and 9th Brigade are all linked to SC Jamir’s evil design to crush the NSCN. However, God forbade Jamir to have his way. These anti-NSCN forces were all eliminated in the counter operation launched by NSCN. But the desperado Jamir went for another abhorrent anti-NSCN operation under his horrendous dementedness to evict the NSCN from Nagaland soil by declaring that the “chaff and paddy” must be separated. Under this policy he made a joint issue with NSCN-K and served “quit notice” against the Tangkhuls in Nagaland state. Much to his sadistic pleasure, as many as thirty five (35) innocent Tangkhuls that include chemist, scientist, teacher, pastor, students, farmers and innocent laymen were killed by NSCN-K in Kohima and Dimapur mainly. But the Tangkhuls stood their ground as they found no reason to quit Nagaland.
To be continued.
