DIMAPUR, AUGUST 1: To protest against Government of India’s ‘silence on Framework Agreement (FA)’ even after 6 years since it was signed, NSCN (IM) has announced that there will be a 12-hour total closure of shops and business establishments in Nagalim (all Naga areas) from August 2 midnight till 12 Noon of August 3.
In a press release issued on Sunday, the group stated that the FA is yet to see the light of fulfillment as committed by the Centre.
“Six years down the line, there is no positive response yet from the GoI. The Nagas cannot be taken for a ride in this manner. While Naga people appreciate the Government of India for recognising the historical and political rights of the Nagas by signing the FA, the matter should not end there. What had been committed should be taken to a logical conclusion”, it stated.
The group appealed to the Naga people and business groups to show solidarity to the FA and co-operate for the success of the shutdown.
“The NSCN Regional authorities and Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) too are requested to co-operate”, it added.
