Kohima, March 03 (NEx): The NSCN (IM) stated that the Indo-Naga political talk teams are back on the table and the talk is progressing. The historic Framework Agreement (FA) signed on the 3rd August, 2015 is being brought back to live in order to remove any misinterpretation and thereby hasten the signing of Naga solution agreement, said NSCN (IM) in a statement today.
The faction said that recently, unnecessary confusion was thrown into the air because of the reckless statement made by Mr. RN Ravi, the Governor of Nagaland in Nagaland Assembly that the Indo-Naga political talks has concluded.
It also mentioned that in many points his statements and conclusions reflected his role as Nagaland Governor and not as Interlocutor. It is a matter of regret that his role as interlocutor is nothing less than disparaging and dismal, it said.
The status of the Indo-Naga political talks that came up in the last Parliamentary Session was confirmed by the Union Government that it is in advance stage. No doubt, this is the ground reality of the Indo-Naga political talk and NSCN talk team is leaving no stone unturned to safeguard the political identity of the Naga people, it affirmed.
Further, the NSCN(IM) calls it 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.
It also said that in the matter of Naga political issue Ravi should be cautious of every single word he uttered lest his credibility is damned. Significantly, it is to be noted that the Indo-Naga political talk is being handled by both the parties to take the Naga people and the GoI to the point that is honorable and acceptable. This is the official understanding and the only way to conclude the talk, the faction asserted.
NSCN(IM) made it’s stand clear that under no circumstances, it will fail the Naga people and will never sign any agreement that is short of the mutual standard as agreed upon.
