GRINDER MUIVAH is no more, NSCN-IM condoles
DIMAPUR, APRIL 6: Naga public leader Grinder Muivah has passed away today in New Delhi. He was one Naga civilian helping the Naga peace process at the highest level.
Meanwhile, NSCN-IM has expressed its ‘deep pain’ on the sudden and untimely demise of late Grinder Muivah in Delhi today due to heart failure. He was 57 years old. He was born in Somdal village of Ukhrul district, Manipur to a family whose contribution to the cause of Naga nation is undeniably immense. He is survived by his wife, three sons and a daughter.
In 1995, the Government of India proposed his name to be a “Go between” for the Indo-Naga political dialogue to which the NSCN agreed upon. Since then he has been passionately engaged in between the two parties in order to arrive to a logical conclusion to the Indo-Naga political imbroglio. It is hard to accept the fact that he is no more with us at this crucial juncture when his presence is ever more needed. With his demise a vacuum to the political process is being created which will be difficult to fill.
NSCN-IM “with immense love and gratitude” said it saluted the departed soul for the great contribution rendered to the Naga nation. “He will always be fondly remembered We pray that the departed soul will rest in eternal peace and that the Almighty God will provide abundant love, kindness and give comfort to the grieving family at this time of sorrow,” the NSCN-IM said in its condolence message.
