Kohima: The anticipated process of further splits in NSCN (K) completed when its expelled chairman has come up with counter-expulsion orders against senior functionaries of GPRN/NSCN terming the later as "unification group".

"The 'tatar hoho' (national parliament) of GPRN/NSCN at its Khehoi designated camp near Dimapur on June 8 impeached and expelled its chairman S S Khaplang, who is a Hemi Naga from Myanmar, and nominated C-in-C Khole Konyak as acting chairman of the outfit.

Using the nomenclature of National Socialist Council of Nagaland and addressing himself as its chairman, S S Khaplang yesterday issued two expulsion orders one for general secretary N Kitovi Zhimomi and another expelling "kilo kilonser" (home minister) Azheto Chophy and other six functionaries of GPRN/NSCN.

The expulsion orders, issued to the media through P Tikhak terming himself as "spokesperson of NSCN(K)," described the expelled functionaries as "members of unification camp," adding that they were expelled for their "anti-party activities.

"This decision was taken at a meeting of NSCN(K)'s council headquarters in Pangmi region of Myanmar chaired by S S Khaplang yesterday," the release said.

While expelling Khaplang from the chairmanship, the national assembly of GPRN/NSCN declared Khehoi designated camp its general and council headquarters from now onwards, and accused the expelled chairman as main stumbling block in the on-going Naga re-conciliation process initiated by Forum for Naga Re-conciliation (FNR).

The counter-expulsion orders from Khaplang also announced NSCN(K)'s withdrawal from the on-going Naga re-conciliation process, saying the other group (read NSCN-IM) involved in the initiative was not serious and committed.

"The NSCN pulled out of the re-conciliation process not because it was against it, but because of the intentional violation of the resolved resolution by the other participating group," the statement said.

Khaplang said, "On sensing their hidden agenda, we declare to fight them tooth and nail and even to this day the NSCN cadre are fighting the reactionary forces in eastern Nagaland as well as in Tirap and Changlang districts of Arunachal Pradesh and Southern Nagaland."

"But Kitovi Zhimomi has been found watching leisurely in "so called" state of Nagaland and not doing enough in the interest of the NSCN, the order said, saying "thus, as per party discipline Zhimomi is found guilty.

"Unity among the Naga people is important provided there is a common vision to excel the liberation struggle from the hands of the occupational forces and should not be merely for personal political mileage or monetary benefits," it said.
