JD-U: Dimapur, November 1: The Janata Dal United Nagaland Unit has appreciated the Government of India and the NSCN-IM for coming to an understanding on the contentious issue of the flag and Constitution of the Nagas as a prelude to a peaceful settlement of the Indo-Naga political problem.
In a release, the State JDU felt that whatever be the competencies that would be taken into consideration as basis for the agreement to be inked between GoI and the NSCN-IM as well as the NNPGs, it should usher in peace and tranquility all over the Naga inhabited areas.
“The contents of the agreement must be able to translate and fulfill the realization of dreams of the younger generation of the Nagas who have far longed for progress in a corruption-free atmosphere. A place where people are drunk with the principles of just and fairness in dealing with all aspects of life. A society that is dependent on honesty and sincerity. A society that is governed by moralistic ethics and with God- fearing functionaries,” it said.
The JDU said it will support all initiatives for good governance and work cohesively for over-all development of Nagaland and get it rid from crime, corruption and communalism. (Page News Service)
