It acknowledged the desire and feeling of the Naga people while also upholding the resolutions of the civil societies, the Nagaland Legislative Assembly and the series of consultative meetings and appeals to the negotiating parties to respond to the cry of the people and bring the protracted Indo-Naga political issue to its logical conclusion at the earliest possible.
