DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 29: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has accused the PDA Government of being “anti-solution” and “anti-Nagaland.”
“Anti-solution forces are once again successful in delaying the deadline. Nagaland State Government has turned anti-Nagaland. Before people they speak of early solution but before GOI they fight for delay in the name of inclusiveness. I do not know how long it will be delayed again. Nagaland State Government will know better,” alleged NPCC president, K Therie, in a press release.
“Nagaland men, women and children expected solution by September end deadline as was promised, hoping to see freedom, peace and opportunities. It is a dark day for Nagaland peace lovers,” he said.
The NPCC maintained that 23 years of negotiations is enough. “Both the parties know each other perhaps more than husband and wife. GOI has also replied what is givable and what is not givable.”
Stating that the Congress Party has assured to stand by the demand of stakeholders, he said. “To us, the welfare of the stakeholders is the final law. Congress should not be the only political party standing for Nagaland stakeholders but today we find Congress alone.”
“In our view solution is and will be inclusive of all. One may agree to disagree, it is natural in democracy, there are always healthy oppositions but majority prevails. There is no shame to accept the majority’s will,” said Therie.
Condemning what he alleged is the “double standard behavior” of the State Government, the NPCC alleged that the only obstacle to solution and happiness is the State Government now. “The Hon’be CM has promised to pave the way repeatedly in all his election and speeches when it matters to solution. This is the time he should honour his commitment that the stakeholders have found acceptable and honourable solution,” he stated.
The NPCC went on to add that what Nagaland needs today is peace, development, employment and growth of economy. Organized farming and marketing avenues with Minimum Support Price are urgently required, he said, adding entrepreneurs need support by way of skill development and funding avenues. “Infrastructures to raise industries are also urgently required to build our own resources and be self-content,” added Therie.
