Dimapur, August 11: The NSCN (IM) has come out strongly against Centre’s interlocutor RN Ravi alleging that the Indo-Naga political talks is in a state of simmering tension and reaching the tipping point all because of Ravi’s vitriolic attack on Naga issue – the very issue he was assigned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to negotiate on his behalf to bring solution that is honorable and acceptable.
“All the hard work of 23 years of Indo-Naga political talks having passed through six successive prime ministers is coming to nauseating end because of the mischief that keeps boiling in the hands of this interlocutor who has become more a liability than anything. The much hyped Framework Agreement (FA) which is the fruition of the recognition of the unique history and situation of the Naga by the Government of India (GoI) was signed in 2015 to form the basis for final settlement of Naga issue. Catastrophic as it is, FA is now undergoing castration at the hands of the very person who co-authored it with NSCN Chairman Mr. Isak Chishi Swu and NSCN General Secretary Mr. Th. Muivah. This is the crux of the Indo-Naga political talks now,” said a statement issued by the MIP NSCN/GPRN.
The statement titled “Mr. RN Ravi’s mis-doings as Interlocutor” alleged that Ravi has “set the bridge on fire” and the meeting point is something unthinkable. “It is comprehensible that person who want to turn the clock back the Naga issue by forcibly making it into “law and order issue” cannot be expected to recapture Naga people’s imagination to bring solution that is honorable and acceptable,” it stated.
