NPCC (PAC) urges all 60 legislators to resign & pave way for political solution

Kohima, July 19 (NEx): The Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) urged all the 60 legislators of the state to resign and pave way for urgent implementation of political solution as their resignation will demonstrate their sincerity towards the political solution.

This was resolved in the committee meeting held on July 16th, 2021 at Congress Bhavan, Kohima, where a three point resolution on the current political situation in the state and emerging disturbances at Assam-Nagaland border was passed in the interest of the people.

On the recent formation of Parliamentary Committee and Core Committee on Naga Political issue by members of Nagaland Legislative Assembly, the PAC said that there is nothing more to talk according to GoI Interlocutor, who is also the Governor of Nagaland. It urged the legislators to resign to show their sincerity towards the implementation of political solution, a press release from the NPCC said on Saturday said.

The committee cautioned Assam Govt on passing ‘The Assam Cattle Preservation Bill, 2021’ and said that it is bound to create more trouble for neighbouring hill states and destroy the age-old ties that have withstood the test of time.

The PAC further said that, ‘Recent border provocation from Assam side by deploying Armed Police personnel well ahead of neutral forces (CAPFs) deployment is of serious concern. Both Assam and Nagaland Govt have taken the wrong path in resolving the long standing boundary disputes, Assam govt for provocation and Nagaland govt for timid response. Since the matter is still pending in Supreme Court, Assam govt must stop its provocation and withdraw its armed police personnel from newly occupied positions. The CAPFs deployed along the disputed border areas must be placed under direct control & supervision of MHA’.
