NSCN-K to boycott I'Day

The NSCN-K declared that it will boycott the upcoming Independence Day celebrations on August 15.

A press release from the NSCN-K’s Ministry of Information & Publicity (MIP) on Tuesday stated that it has imposed a ban on celebration of “Indian Independence Day throughout Naga inhabited territories” in India.

While it appealed to “every Naga national” to abstain from participating in the I-Day event, it stated that the Government of India has been relentlessly continuing “massive military deployment empowered with unethical and inhuman Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, AFSPA, Disturbed Area Act, Terrorist tag etc.”

Despite, the NSCN-K said it “will keep up the revolutionary course to thwart and expel the occupational authority.”
