GUWAHATI: The Indo-Naga political talk teams are back on the table and the talk is progressing, said National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN-IM) on Wednesday as it discarded Nagaland Governor RN Ravi’s previous statement that Indo-Naga political talk has already concluded.
In a statement to the media, the NSCN (IM) said that the historic framework agreement (FA) signed on August 3, 2015, was being brought back to live in order to remove any misinterpretation and thereby hasten the signing of the Naga solution agreement.
Recently, confusion was thrown into the air following Ravi in Nagaland Assembly allegedly said that the Indo-Naga political talk has concluded.
“It is a matter of regret that his role as interlocutor is nothing less than disparaging and dismal,” said NSCN (IM).
The status of the Indo-Naga political talks that came up in the last parliamentary session was confirmed by the Centre that it was in the advance stage.
The group added, “It is very unfortunate of RN Ravi to have made such a misleading statement before the whole nation by blatantly contradicting the GoI and the Indian Parliament besides the 136 crores Indians and the world community in the matter of such sensitive Indo-Naga political negotiations going on for more than two decades. In the matter of Naga political issue, he should be cautious of every single word he uttered lest his credibility is damned.”
The Indo-Naga political talk has been handled by both the parties to take the Naga people and the Centre to the point that is honorable and acceptable.
“NSCN, therefore, under no circumstances will fail the Naga people and will never sign any agreement that is short of the mutual standard as agreed upon,” said the statement.
