    The statement read, “It has come to notice of the Government that lots of rumours and misinformation is being spread in media including social media that final Naga settlement has been arrived at and will be announced soon. This is creating anxiety and concern in some parts of the country.”

    The statement also included that no credence should be given to such rumours and the Government has not arrived at the final settlement on the issue.   

    It may be mentioned that the Naga peace talks are going on with the Centre where the later has finally decided to accept the demands of the NSCN-IM but with certain conditions. However, there has been no official announcement on the end or final settlement on this regard.
