Kohima, October 31 (NE): The NPF delegation from Nagaland and Manipur appeal the 7 NNPGs WG and NSCN (IM) to unite and sign the final agreement for peace and progress.
Leader of Opposition, Nagaland Legislative Assembly and leader of NPF Legislature Party, TR Zeliang took twitter on Thursday, October 31, 2019 to inform that NPF delegation from Nagaland and Manipur, lead by TR Zeliang met the 7 NNPGs WG on October 29, 2019 and the Collective Leadership of the NSCN (IM) on October 30, 2019 and made an appeal to the two groups to unite and sign the final agreement for peace and progress.
The opposition Naga People’s Front (NPF) on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 said it cannot set an ultimatum on the negotiating parties of Naga political issue, though it desires an early settlement of the vexed problem.
The NPF statement came when peace talks are on to find a lasting solution to the seven-decade-old insurgency problem in Nagaland in New Delhi.
We reiterate our stand that elected members as facilitators cannot put an ultimatum on the negotiating parties and comment on what to accept and what not in the final agreement. It is for the negotiating parties to sit together and hammer out differences and come out with a logical conclusion,” NPF Legislature Party Spokesperson Imkong L Imchen, informed through a statement.
Imchen said, the NPF Party Central Executive Council had adopted a resolution in June on the Naga symbolic issues.
The resolution said, “The NPF strongly feels that any political solution without recognising the symbolic identity of the Nagas will fall short of Naga aspiration.”
