TR Zeliang condoles Khaplang's death
Former Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang mourns the sudden demise of SS Khaplang, the Naga leader who died on Friday evening at the NSCN(K)'s headquarter in Taga, Myanmar. Here's his condolence message sent to Assam Times:
“It is with deep shock and sadness that I mourn the sudden demise of SS Khaplang, Chairman of the NSCN-K who passed away on Friday evening at the HQ of the NSCN-K in Taga, Myanmar.
During my tenure as the Chief Minister of Nagaland, I had made several efforts to reach out, to request him to come back into a Ceasefire Agreement with the GOI .I had personally gone to Myanmar for Consultative Meetings with the Naga leaders where I had requested Naga apex Organisations to meet Uncle SS Khaplang and convey my sincere request to have a Ceasefire Agreement with the Govt of Myanmar and to opt for a peaceful dialogue to resolve the Naga political issue amicably for the Nagas living in Myanmar. This, I had stated, would be the best solution for the Nagas living on both sides of India and Myanmar so that the Nagas would see permanent peace and march forward with progress and development.
I was deeply touched and impressed when he sent back words of appreciation on sending the Naga Hoho, ENPO, NMA and Church leaders on their second trip to Myanmar with the same mission for Peace. I am filled with regrets and it is most unfortunate that today, we have lost a bold Naga leader before he could fully realise the mission and cherished dream of the Nagas.
May God bless his departed soul and grant solace to his bereaved family members. Deepest condolences from me and my family to all the rank and file of the NSCN-K on the demise of the Naga leader.”
