‘Appealing to resume talks does not make any sense’
DIMAPUR, JULY 10: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has slammed the resolution of the Core Committee on Naga Political Issue, terming it as “bereft of feasible and practical directives, besides being in direct confrontation with the statement of State Governor, RN Ravi who had already stated that talks are over.
“The resolution is a direct confrontation with the Hon’ble Governor who is the head of the State Government”, said NPCC president K Therie in a press release.
“Appealing to resume talks does not make any sense when the Governor has already stated in the State Assembly in the month of February 2021 that talks are over for Nagaland. They have also undermined 24 years of hard negotiations and public suffering by way of multiple extortions. I do not know what has happened to the wisdom of the elected Hon’ble Members. Perhaps, God has taken away their wisdom”, he claimed.
In a meeting on Friday, the Core Committee had appealed to Naga negotiating groups to unite and create a common approach for ‘One Solution and One Agreement’. It also appealed to the negotiating parties of the Indo-Naga political dialogue to resume peace talks with a positive approach of mutual respect for each other by setting aside pre-conditions.
Therie claimed that the Core Committee’s resolution has ignored the Framework Agreement and the Agreed Points nullifying them. It also has insulted the stakeholders, he said.
The NPCC also alleged that “the eloquence of the Core Committee is clearly with intent to delay implementation of solution to save their personal positions and chairs and to please NSCN (IM).”
“NSCN (IM) has cautioned the Core Committee not to dilute the FWA for they only want FWA to be implemented. Implementation will be done by the Government of India. The interpretation of FWA will be done by the Parliament finally, for what is givable will be realistic solution”, he said.
“They say they are ready to pave the way. If they do it, solution will be there. They only need to cooperate and impress upon the Governor for implementation. Core Committee is wastage of time and is meaningless”, added Therie. (Page News Service)
