Dimapur, August 3: The Naga People’s Front (NPF) today reiterated its stand on integration of all contiguous Naga areas as enshrined in party’s constitution and appealed to the neighbouring states to be rational in their approach on the Naga political issue.
In its consultative meeting with NPF central office bearers and NPF legislators of Nagaland and Manipur today, the party welcomed the suggestion of the Parliamentary Standing Committee for early solution of the Naga political problem. However, it said the report of the Parliamentary Standing Committee in its present form which has been widely published in the print media has not touched the core issues and hence it may have to re-look the report on the Naga Political issue.
It urged upon the Government of India (GOI) and the Naga National Workers to expedite the ongoing political talks and bring to a logical conclusion.
The NPF appealed to all other Naga National Groups who have not joined the peace process to reconsider their decisions in the interest of the Naga people.
The meeting resolved to oppose the proposed Citizenship Amendment Act in its present form. It urged the citizen of Nagaland to remain alert as many illegal immigrants are likely to enter Nagaland in view of the publication of National Register of Citizens (NRC) by Government of Assam.
The House urged the Government of Nagaland to gear up all government machineries to prevent and check illegal immigrants from neighboring states.
The meeting further expressed discontentment over the functioning of the present PDA government. It observed that the PDA Government has failed on all fronts as it has not kept up to its promises made to the people during the past 147 days of its governance.
The meeting conveyed its deepest condolence to the bereaved families who have been a victim of the incessant rain.
While sympathizing with the people of Nagaland over the hardship faced by the common people owing to incessant rain, coupled with natural calamities, the NPF urged the Government of the day to ensure that normal activities of the citizens of Nagaland be protected by all means and restore the pathetic road conditions in the state at the earliest.
Earlier, the meeting resolved to stand firm under the leadership of Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu, President Naga People’s Front and T R Zeliang, leader of the NPF Legislature Party.
Further the house endorsed the President and the Leader of the NPF Legislature Party to take any final decision in the event of new political re-alignment with other political parties particularly in the state of Nagaland and Manipur. (Page News Service)
