NTC urges PM to resolve Naga issue without delay

Apprising about the “anxiety” of the people of Nagaland in particular and the Nagas in general for the “much-expected solution” to the Naga political issue, the Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has urged the Prime Minister of India to intervene and resolve the long pending political solution “as has been promised.”
In a representation addressed to the Prime Minister of India, the NTC president Toniho Yepthomi and general secretary Nribemo Ngullie reminded him of the promise he made to the Nagas for early solution of the Naga political issue. NTC stated that negotiations between the Naga political groups (NPGs) and the government of India for a political solution “have officially been culminated” on October 31, 2019.
The council stated that the “only task left” at the moment was for the government of India to take a call for signing the agreement between the Naga negotiators and the government of India.
NTC, however, said that the assured political settlement was “still evasive for the last two and a half years even after the conclusion of the political dialogue.”
It said that the longer the matter of settlement for a political solution was delayed, the more problems would surface. As a result, NTC said the brunt of the “backlash always fall and impact the common people for no fault of theirs.”
NTC has, therefore, urged the Prime Minister of India to take up the matter on top priority basis and resolve the decades-old Naga political solution that was “honourable and acceptable without any further delay.”
