Imkongliba Ao was a visionary leader with extraordinary courage and strategic foresight, the Nagaland governor stated in his message.
Naga organisations, including Naga Hoho, UNC, ANSF and Zeliangrong and Rengma Council of Assam questioned the integrity of the interlocutor.
The student body alleged that the interlocutor's employment of the divisive policy upon the Naga people to his best advantage is at the least frustrating.
The United Naga Council said that RN Ravi must remember that he is more of a Naga interlocutor than a “mere” Nagaland governor.
The outfit was reacting to RN Ravi’s statement on the demand of Naga flag and constitution, which he made while speaking during 58th Statehood Day celebration of Nagaland. In his statement, Ravi stated that Government of India is absolutely clear that there shall be only one National Flag and Constitution in India.
It is pertinent to have proper information, so that we can make more informed judgment about these issues.
The ZB said that the Zeliangrong people and the Nagas in general are looking forward to the strong determination of peaceful solution.
The NSCN-(I-M) in a statement said: 'Ironically, after five years, while the Framework Agreement has been put in cold storage, something unthinkable emanating from the Raj Bhawan in Kohima has taken over the scene'.
RN Ravi while pointing out the deplorable law and order situation in the state said that he has been closely observing the precarious law and order situation in the state with a lot of concern.
