Kitovi stated that the WC-NNPGs, has been the “emissary and political agent” of Naga tribes fully integrated and blended with apex tribal bodies, customary institutions, and other ground rooted CSOs to negotiate with the Government of India in order to secure “honourable and acceptable” political solution for the Nagas.

With an assertion that the protracted Naga political issue belonged to all Nagas with equal participation and responsibility from both including the young and old alike, GPRN/NSCN’s Ato Kilonser, and convenor, WC-NNPGs, N Kitovi Zhimomi, on Wednesday said that every single Naga is a “stakeholder” and has every right to seek answers to the “concluded” political matters.
Stating that the Naga civil societies demanding “honourable and acceptable” political solution based on the understanding reached between the government of India and the Naga negotiating groups on October 31, 2019, must be respected and honoured, Kitovi supplemented that the Nagaland Gaon Burah Federation (NGBF) extending its “elderly platform” to the 27 civil societies of Nagaland on June 21 meeting at Hotel Saramati, Dimapur, was a powerful statement in itself.
Kitovi also stated that the “negotiations” have been officially concluded and therefore the political leadership of India must take the decision while generalizing. He alleged that the Naga political groups were deliberately delaying the political solution for “personal reasons and ambitions which are vague and unfounded”.
Kitovi also said that the WC, NNPGs, has been the “emissary and political agent” of Naga tribes fully integrated and blended with apex tribal bodies, customary institutions, and other ground rooted CSOs to negotiate with the government of India in order to secure “honourable and acceptable” political solution for the Nagas.
He also stated that WC, NNPGs, has been “sincerely and transparently” representing the Nagas irrespective of state boundaries without compromising on the “core principle” and values of Naga history, identity and political rights. He later extended his hope that CSOs, Nagaland, forming “Nagaland Public Action Committee” (NPAC) would re-energize the Nagas into actively participating in peaceful democratic expressions to ensure the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, fulfil his declared commitment to Nagas.
