Indian official says key rebel leader dies in Myanmar

The minister said Khaplang was the "the heart and soul" of NSCN-K and without him, the organisation will be in a disarray.

Subsequently, the government has snapped the dialogue and in September 2015, the NSCN-K was declared as an unlawful organisation for five years. Now that he is no more, the NSCN-K leadership will face a lot of difficulties.

After the Generals were mollified by Doval-Jaishankar duo, intelligence and military cooperation between India and Myanmar has been stepped up in the past two years.

The Union minister appealed to the Indian citizens of NSCN-K to come mainstream.

Rijiju said that, the Centre is ready to talk with Paresh Baruah led ULFA (I) in all issues apart from sovereignty. While the government has signed a framework agreement with the NSCN (I-M) in August 2015, Khapalang walked out of the ceasefire in early 2015 and made a decision to team up with the Paresh Baruah faction of the ULFA and KYKL (a Manipur insurgent group). The ceasefire was also abrogated (unilaterally by NSCN-K in 2015). "Though God has called you home to be with Him before you could see the end objective of our common struggle and that this reality pains us greatly, those of us who are still alive will continue to run the course for the sake of our upcoming generations in keeping with our pledge to our people". "Their activities also had effects in Assam", Rijiju added.

"It was encouraging to learn that Khaplang had, a few months back conveyed his willingness to have a dialoguewith the government provided issues of substance were discussed", he said. "Before things could be taken is calamitous that the Naga leader could not live long enough to see the proverbial Promised Land", Shourhozelie stated in a condolence message.
