Dimapur, April 15 (EMN): A Zeliangrong youth organisation has asked the Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei community groups to ponder ‘the fate of Zeliangrong people collective future.’ The Zeliangrong Youth Front (ZYF) issued a press release on Sunday noting the NSCN (IM) ‘recognizing’ three distinct and separate tribes Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei ‘after breaking up the single Zeliangrong family.’

The ZYF stated: The more controversial is that the National Socialist Council of Nagaland or Government of the People’s Republic of Nagaland in short NSCN / GPRN (IM) group who is fighting against the govt. of India for the Naga people in total contradiction to its commitment have recently taken a decision by its Tatar Hoho on 23rd March 2018 to process for recognition of three distinct and separate tribes as Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei after breaking up the single Zeliangrong family which is nothing but endorsement to govt. of India divisive policy.’

The “wrong doing’ of the govt. of India “can be corrected or amended” by way of necessary and required procedures “but the NSCN/GPRN who recognized the Zeliangrong people into three separate and distinct tribes may create more problems since the Naga people cannot deny the fact of other Naga political groups existence especially in the event of any Naga political groups disowned the recognition of Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei by the NSCN/GPRN.”

The ZYF has urged ‘all responsible people and advised the functionaries of ZNC, LNC and RNC to seriously ponder the fate of Zeliangrong people collective future.’ It will be ‘unwise’ on the part of the Zeliangrong people to ‘praise or celebrate when your family is going to break into pieces on unrealistic grounds,’ the press release explained. It has urged the Zeliangrong people ‘not to be a part of the darkest history but to be a part of bright and prosperous collective future of Zeliangrong people.’
