Dimapur, June 12 (EMN): On the occasion of 10th anniversary in the signing of Covenant of Reconciliation, Naga Hoho has acknowledged the members of Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) in particular for leading the Naga people thus far towards the path of peace and reconciliation among the rival groups.
“Being minorities in this sub-continent, fear and apprehensions are looming in the minds of Naga people of what destiny holds and therefore, amicable political settlement is the only hope which is possible once we are united and reconciled,” Naga Hoho communication cell stated in a press release.
Naga Hoho also fervently appealed to all Naga political rival groups to renew their vision and implement the Covenant of Reconciliation in letter and spirit for the common Naga cause.
It recounted horrific killings among different Naga political rival groups (factions) alongside the bloody war between the Indian occupational forces and Naga armies which was a harrowing nightmare and a memory never to be forgotten.
It stated that in such an unprecedented situation ten years back, the Naga civil societies unanimously resolved to form a body called Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) with a view to strive for unity and reconciliation among different Naga political groups.
Significantly, the Covenant of Reconciliation was signed by all the top ranking Naga political groups on June 13, 2009, under the banner of FNR which was an epoch making event in the annals of Naga political history, the statement added.
