Dimapur, November 29: Leaders of 14 Naga tribes of Nagaland has again appealed to the “patriotic leaderships” of both the negotiating parties of Naga Political Groups to come together prioritizing Naga interest than self righteous stance and pave way for realization of the desire of the Naga people.
Making the appeal in a press release, the leaderships of 14 Naga tribes of Nagaland expressed concern that the long awaited solution for the Naga peace talks appear so near yet so far away just because of the deliberate unwillingness of the negotiators to reconcile in one stand as Naga patriots.
“…the Leaderships of the 14 Naga Tribes of Nagaland is extremely troubled should the long awaited solution from the Naga Peace Talks, at its finality be converted into a mirage or a thing akin of an illusionist’s hex grounding our age old Naga aspiration to appear so near yet so far away and non materialistic just because of the deliberate unwillingness of the negotiators to reconcile in one stand as Naga patriots. Such a turn of event will be too unfortunate and will never convalesce again no matter how flamboyantly Naga people would deny of our own erroneous doing,” it said.
The release insisted that enduring peace must come to the people and “whoever is the strength that claims to work to achieve that objective representing the people must be sensible to feel the pulse and desire of the people they claim to work for, else everything will be overturned in distrust.”
The 14 Naga tribes of Nagaland also appealed to the Government of India to work out a mechanism that will put the entire political process to a logical conclusion and to deliver peace and harmony to the entire North east region without further delay.
“Solution is our topmost priority today and therefore any excuse or condition to delay the much awaited solution is against the interest of the people. The people of Nagaland are longing for a peaceful and lasting acceptable solution and such pursuit should not be at the cost of creating another bigger problem,” it added. (Page News Service)
