Dear Naga people,
I greet you all on this auspicious occasion of our Republic Day of 22nd March.The Nagas as Republic people and Nation has been declared 61 years ago on this day by the pioneers which was and is known to the outside world but it came with a heavy price as the Government of India sent her Armed Forces to Naga country and started killing the Naga people, burnt down our villages and occupied Naga country.
These forceful occupation of Naga country was a political crime committed by the Governments of both India and Burma (Myanmar) against Naga people in particular and crime against humanity at large.
Therefore, may the Naga people recollect on this occasion the heavy price we paid for our freedom and renew the zeal to come forward for National duty to stand together to achieve our freedom as the time and year is right and ripe.
The recent chaos in Nagaland has clearly shown to the outside world and India in particular the strength and unity of Naga Tribal Hohos in opposition for conduct of Urban & Local Body Election with 33% reservation for women as infringement of Article 371(a) of Indian constitution in total unison.
Today I must say that if the Tribal Hohos come forward in this strength of unison for Naga freedom of recognition, the Naga people will surely achieve our Goal without much difficulty.
The time is ripe and the day is at hand. Therefore, let us put our mind and soul together in unison to work out the best political solution for our people for freedom of seven decades.
In response to the call and urge for unity, the Naga National Political Groups are now in unity for the cause of our freedom.
Therefore, the Naga people in the homeland should fully support the Cause and present unity of Naga National Political Groups without any reservation for the best political solution in the interest of Regional peace and development.
The sooner people realize the better it will be for our Freedom.
