Nagalim: `Home-Consultations’ Set To Begin
Naga civil society organisations are going to receive invitations for the `home-consultations` with the NSCN-IM leaders. Tomorrow, [October 25th 2012] top NSCN-IM leaders will have their own meeting with the Tartars (the outfit`s members of parliament), Kilonsers (ministers) and other top ranking leaders of the organisation. “After this meeting only the `home-consultations will begin,” further disclosed the sources.

All roads lead to Camp Hebron, the NSCN-IM`s main base, off Dimapur presently but no news was heard ever again after the much publicised arrival of NSCN-IM general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah and the outfit`s chairman Isak Chisi Swu two days ago.
With the rising tempo given the prevailing situation, everyone is curious as to what news Isak Swu and Muivah “had brought with them” from New Delhi on October 18. The charged up atmosphere has been owing to Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde`s comment of inking the much hyped would-be Naga settlement by March next year, the time when election to the Nagaland legislative Assembly is due.
Sources disclosed to Newmai News Network this evening [October 20th, 2012] that Naga civil society organisations are yet to get invitations for the `home-consultations` with the NSCN-IM leaders at Camp Hebron. The sources however said they are likely to get formal invitations in a couple of days` time. “I was told that series of consultative meetings will be only after October 25,” said a prominent Naga leader in Kohima. The sources added that on October 25 top NSCN-IM leaders will have their own meeting with the Tartars (the outfit`s members of parliament), Kilonsers (ministers) and other top ranking leaders of the organisation. “After this meeting only the `home-consultations will begin,” further disclosed the sources.
Meanwhile, this time round, the affairs is not going to be the ones held in the year 2003 and 2004 where the civil society leaders and the Naga public from Manipur, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and even from Myanmar had participated altogether at one go. “This time, the collective leadership (i.e Th Muivah and Isak Swu) will meet separately with every Naga frontal organisations on the latest dialogue development,” said another well placed source.
Meanwhile, it is still sketchy whether Th Muivah and Isak Swu will be meeting rival outfits` leaders though it has been speculated that there is a strong possibility of such meetings on the proposed Naga National Government (NNG).
Last year on August 26, three Naga underground organisations including the NSCN faction led by Khole and Kitovi (GPRN/NSCN), NNC/FGN and NSCN-IM had convened a meeting to take up measures for the formation of the common Naga underground government christened as Naga National Government (NNG).
It was reported then, “The signatories of the Naga Concordant had met at Dimapur and agreed to take gradual and practical measures towards the formation of one Naga National Government. As a preliminary step towards creating understanding and cooperation amongst the signatories, we have agreed to jointly fight against rampant collection of tax, kidnapping, abduction, threats, intimidation, rape and other social evils. It also agreed to take stringent measures against its own cadres that are involved in criminal acts which are detrimental to the orderly pursuit of the Naga national cause. The three underground groups then agreed that in the eventuality of any crisis, the responsible leader of each delegation should have telephoned the respective counterpart on each of the other delegations
