DIMAPUR, JANUARY 6: Prominent public organizations and civil societies of Nagaland today strongly demanded solution to the protracted Indo-Naga political issue before Assembly election in the State.
In a representation to Union Home Minister Amit Shah on his visit to Nagaland today, the Naga civil societies reminded that Naga people had submitted several memorandums and representation to the Prime Minister of India in particular during the last few years urging him to resolve the issue without delay.
“Yet, uncertainty looks large till date despite the official negotiations being concluded in October 2019,” it lamented.
The representation was signed by Nagaland People’s Action Committee (NPAC), Peace Committee, Nagaland GB Federation (Village Chiefs); Nagaland GB Federation (Village Chiefs); Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT); Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC); Senior Citizens Association Nagaland (SCAN); Ex-Parliamentarians’ Association Nagaland (Ex-PAN); Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) and Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC).
The representation rued that the pacification of the public by the then BJP general secretary in-charge of Nagaland that “election is for solution” in 2018 seems to have become a damp squib as the term of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly is about to end without solution.
“We have lost our faith in the democratic process and therefore strongly demand political solution before the election”, it said while assuring utmost cooperation towards implementation of the solution.
The representation further urged the Government of India to take the decision as to whether the negotiations are brought to its logical conclusion in a solution or call it a fiasco as the indecision does not benefit any party. (Page News Service)
