Dimapur, Oct. 10 (EMN): The chairman of the Naga Club has refuted a number of statements attributed to him. The chairman of the group, Krurovi Peseyie, issued a note on Wednesday stating that the Naga Club was pan-Naga.
“I, Mr. Krurovi Peseyie am hereby declaring that I always was and am for ‘Nagas are one’ and I had never said or will say that the centennial jubilee of Naga Club would be confined to Nagaland only,’ Peseyie stated in message on Wednesday. ‘I have been vociferously speaking of what Mr. A. Kevichusa, ICS clearly stated that the Naga Club was not for any particular tribe or community or religion. It is for all Nagas. This is the main objective of the Naga Club even today.’
The note stated that there never had been “any word or idea of exclusion of any Naga from the Naga Club or from its officials. I, the chairman of the Naga Club never uttered any word about the jurisdiction of the Naga Club in the matter jubilee celebration.” Peseyie has appealed to the Naga people not to “misunderstand me by believing cheap propaganda or unpalatable allegations.”
“Some hunters are perhaps aiming to shoot me as if I were a deer, in the least the sacrificial lamb. But never can I become a deer. I will unalterably remain as a human being and a true Naga,’ he added.
