Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, AUGUST 2: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee has said that Congress party cannot be faulted if the final outcome of the Naga political issue disappoints the aspirations of the people.

The PCC in its Executive Committee meeting held on July 30 last, at Kohima, lamented that on the Naga political issue and the impending final settlement, the state Government despite all its supposed concern and enthusiasm with other political parties in the State has not even bothered to consult NPCC despite the fact that INC remains the main Opposition party in Parliament.
The NPCC said the rise of communal politics has created massive unrest across the nation with the idea of secularism and liberal democracy constantly under attack.
With an objective to provide a large tent for those who choose to fight and defeat the divisive and communal forces, the house took a decision to invite all former party men and women to come home and re-strengthen Congress which remains the only viable alternative in the face of regional parties surrendering their regional pride and compromising their principles at the feet of Hindutva forces.
The house further reached consensus to revoke all expulsion and suspension orders in the greater interest of the party and the people of Nagaland.
The house further expressed its serious concern on the recent Assam-Mizoram border clashes and the continued confrontation.
It said the Union Government should take serious note of the volatile situation and take urgent steps to de-escalate the situation.

Stating that the economic blockade on Mizoram by different civil society organizations in Assam must be removed, the NPCC further said adequate security be provided to ensure uninterrupted movement of essential commodities.
The house further urged the Governments of Assam and Mizoram to settle the dispute amicably by understanding the context of political/administrative boundaries and traditional boundaries.
