Nagaland CM Convenes Meeting on June 19 for Peace Talks

Chief Minister of Nagaland Neiphiu Rio has convened a meeting of all-party MLAs on June 19 to discuss the ongoing Naga Peace Process.

Nagaland Government on Thursday constituted a core committee consisting of both ruling and opposition MLAs to facilitate Naga Peace Talks that has been circulated on Social Media platforms. The State Assembly adopted a resolution in February this year, to urge the government of India and Naga groups for early conclusion of Political talks.

In 2015, the Centre signed a “framework agreement” with NSCN(IM) and “agreed position” with NNPGs in 2017. However NSCN(IM) demand for a second Naga Flag and constitution has been a delaying factor in signing a final deal on the protracted Naga Political issue.

The NSCN(IM) also issued its bi-monthly newsletter “Nagalim Voice” reiterated the Naga people held two thing dearly that is their Political identity as symbolised by Naga National Flag and Yehzabo (Constitution).

“These two issues are not negotiable. It cannot be bartered away in exchange for any temporary gains. History will not forgive NSCN if we sell out Nagas’ historical and political rights for the sake of concluding the Indo-Naga political dialogue,” the NSCN (IM) stated.
