The Naga Studentsโ€™ Federation has on 8th February 2024 written to Antรฒnio Guterres, Secretary General, United Nations, appealing for โ€œimmediate intervention against further fragmentation of Naga homeland by occupational forcesโ€ in the wake of Union Home Minister Amit Shahโ€™s announcement of the Government of Indiaโ€™s commitment to fence the border of India and Myanmar and also to immediately suspend the Free Movement Regime (FMR) in the border areas. In its representation, the NSF expressed concerns that the decisions of the government may โ€œsow the seeds of discord and unrest in the regionโ€. It alleged GoI of โ€œacting undemocratically, by investing more on the unjust war efforts to keep the Nagas permanently under siegeโ€. The proposal for the fence and scrapping of FMR is one of such repressive policies to control day-to-day pursuits for subsistence, basic agricultural and micro-economic activities of the Nagas living across the boundary, NSF President Medovi Rhi and General Secretary Chumben Khuvung stated in the letter.

Following is the complete text of the representation of the Naga Studentsโ€™ Federation: We the undersigned, representing the sentiments and the aspirations of the Naga youth, bring to your urgent attention on the serious threats propounded by the Indian occupational force to fence the arbitrary India-Myanmar border and abolish Free Movement Regime. The ploy manifests clear evidence of the government of Indiaโ€™s insincerity and insensitivity towards the inherent Naga birth right and the hope for the Naga people to once again live as free people.

The occupation of free Naga Homeland by the Indian and Burmese armed forces in violation of the Naga nationhood and the resistance by the Naga people is more than seven decades. Despite the unaccountable atrocities perpetrated on the Naga people by the colonial governments, the Naga ceasefire agreement with government of India and Myanmar (erstwhile Burma) and various other agreements and joint communiquรฉs gave a ray of hope for a political solution. However, situation has become precarious.

The Naga people look forward to your unconditional support in delivering justice and ensuring sustainable settlement to the protracted political impasse.
