NSCN-IM stops Naga youth's peace march for "violating" outfit's disciplinary code of conduct

KOHIMA:

The National Socialist Council of Nagaland - Isak Muivah (NSCN-IM) on Saturday clarified that peace mission walk carried out by a Naga youth from Manipur, YS Mashungmi was a “violation of a disciplinary code of conduct” of the NSCN IM.

YS Mashungmi belongs to the Tangkhul tribe of Manipur. He had undertaken a peace mission walk by carrying an Indian National flag on his shoulders and Naga flag on his backside from Dimapur in Nagaland on December 8, to spread the message of peace, reconciliation and unity among the Nagas.

“YS Mashungmi, who is a bona fide cadre of National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN), went for the so-called Peace March carrying both the national flags of India and Nagalim without taking the authority into confidence. Such a one-man operation with sensitive political implications is not allowed by the NSCN. His daring venture, no matter how patriotic it may appear in the eyes of the beholder, amounts to a violation of a disciplinary code of conduct,” the release issued by NSCN stated.

Further, it informed that the faction has taken security implication into account to abort his peace-march midway and Mashungmi is currently being debriefed to establish the idea behind his peace march.
