NSCN-K (Khango) revokes expulsion order of Isak Sumi
KOHIMA | SEPT 21, 2020:
The chairman of the NSCN/GPRN-K, Lt. Gen (Retd.) Khango Konyak revoked the expulsion of General Secretary Col (Retd.) Isak Sumi on Sunday.
The decision to revoke the September 12 order comes after the intervention of leaders of the working committee, NNPGs and civil society organisations.
Chairman Khango Konyak reached Dimapur on September 17 and held meetings along with the NNPGs and interlocutor R.N. Ravi on September 19. Isak Sumi, who was expelled on charges of 'violation of Yehzabo', nepotism, tribalism and others, was reinstated in the same status and position he held earlier.
"He will also continue to represent NSCN/GPRN (K) as Co-Convenor in the WC, NNPGs," stated the deed of reconciliation appended by Khango, Isak, N. Kitovi Zhimomi and other stakeholders including the Naga Tribes Council (NTC).
The agreement also stated that the General Secretary Isak Sumi will consult the Chairman Khango Konyak on all important issues.
The decision was made in the presence of the NTC peace mediation team, the Nagaland Gaon Bura Federation (NGBF) and the rest of the WC, NNPG members.
We may note that Isak Sumi, in an earlier statement after the expulsion, had stated that he was ready for reconciliation and harboured no ill will towards Chairman Khango Konyak.
