Dimapur, June 12: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio today said that that integration of Naga-inhabited areas would not be possible under the current situation thus in a way putting to rest all speculation and concerns in the neighbouring states.
According a report by NELive, Rio significantly admitted for the first time that bringing all Naga inhabited areas under a single administrative platform would not be possible.
He stated that integration of Naga inhabited areas would involve other states and hence even though the demand is genuine, it is not possible to physically integrate the Naga inhabited areas.
This is a significant statement by the Nagaland Chief minister considering the fact that integration of Naga inhabited areas has been a long cherished demand in the state.
Meanwhile, Rio has also clarified that at no point of time has his government opposed the proposed Citizenship Amendment Bill.
Rio added that the Inner Line Permit and Article 371-A are already in force in Nagaland and provided enough protection to the state and hence there was no need to oppose the Citizenship Bill that has created furore across the region. (Page News Service)
