The Thirteenth Nagaland Legislative Assembly, which began on August 2, took several resolutions, including peace talks.
"We are grateful to all the Naga national political leaders for their leadership and standing firm and their willingness to hammer out differences towards an honorable and logical solution for our land and people," ANSAM stated in a press release.
RNSOM president Daichuipou Gangmei said that students’ bodies welcomed the union home minister under the aegis of All Naga Students Association Manipur (ANSAM).
ANSAM reaffirmed its “fullest” support to the collective leadership of the NSCN-IM to bring a “logical and honourable solution” to the Indo-Naga political issue.
The state government’s lack of clarity in its roles towards the prolonged peace talk has created confusion and loss of trust from the government itself, COCOMi stated
As the NSCN (I-M) has been demanding integration of Naga inhabited areas of the neighbouring states in Northeast India, the people of Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh which are not part of the agreement have been highly apprehensive of the talks.
If the final solution of the peace talk is to be extended to the state of Manipur, then the Centre should invite the civil bodies of Manipur as a party to the talks, stated a release.
It is pertinent to have proper information, so that we can make more informed judgment about these issues.
The Naga People’s Front (NPF) has stated that any ‘aggressive action’ by either party would only derail the “hard earned peace when the general public is eagerly waiting for the honorable solution to the Naga political problem at any moment”.
