Reminds BJP of its ‘election for solution’ slogan
Dimapur, July 18: The Naga Hoho (NH) has urged the Government of India not to shy away from its agreed principle and take up the Naga political problem urgently during the ensuing monsoon session of Parliament.
In a statement, the NH reminded the Government of India and the BJP leadership that the Naga people wanted to have political solution before elections, but the general elections in Nagaland in February 2018 was conducted against the wishes of the Naga people with the slogan “Election for Solution”.
“It is understandable that there will be various obstacle and hiccups before the final solution but GOI should not shy away from its agreed principle and take up the Naga political problem urgently during the ensuing Monsoon Session of Parliament,” it said.
The NH also urged the GoI to make use of the present opportune time and come to a logical conclusion at the earliest to the protracted Naga political problem.
The NH also slammed the statement made by Manipur Chief Minister that to take “extreme steps if Naga deal hurts Manipur’s interest”, terming the statement as “nonsensical and more of his own figment of imagination.”
Reiterating that “Nagas will never grab any land or property which is not ours nor will compromise with any force on earth to take away what is ours,” the Naga Hoho reminded that it was taken into cognizance by both the entities that violence and armed struggle have no place in today’s global context and therefore the cease-fire and Framework Agreement was signed between the Naga people and GoI in search of peaceful Indo-Naga political settlement.
“We firmly believe that this settlement will definitely pave the way for the entire North Eastern region to usher in peaceful atmosphere and to develop our region at par with other people in the world. Rest assured, it is now left to the wisdom of Indian leadership and the Naga political negotiators to decide what is best for both the entities and the future of the Nagas.”
The hoho appealed to the Chief Minister of Manipur and the Meiteis to be conscious enough to deal with such issues which are highly sensitive in nature. It also appealed to all Metei brothers and sisters to understand and not to hurt the sentiments of the Nagas and their political rights basing on the fact that “we will remain neighbors forever and the Nagas are sincerely willing and open to maintain sisterly relationship in all generations to come.” (Page News Service)
