Any possible solution should be studied : NPF
DIMAPUR, May 24
The Naga People’s Front (NPF) said any possible solution to the Naga issue that may be arrived at out of the ongoing political negotiation between the Government of India and the Naga negotiating groups needs to be seriously examined before giving it a final shape.
Adopting a two-point resolution at a meeting at its headquarters in Kohima on Tuesday, the Working Committee of the party pointed out that the past agreements and accords have not produced the desired result which ultimately led to more divisions amongst the Nagas rather than bringing them together.
The meeting deliberated at length on the ongoing peace process vis-à-vis the possible outcome of the present political talks between the Centre and the NSCN (IM) and the Naga National Political Groups.
The party reiterated its stand that solution should be honourable, acceptable and inclusive.
The meeting also resolved to revamp and restrengthen the party at all levels.
Noting that the Nagas are going through a very critical phase of the “political movement”, the party invited all well-wishers to associate with it in order to take the Naga people forward.
Elaborating on the political stand of the party, NPF president Shürhozelie Leizietsu said the NPF is the only viable and the oldest regional political party for the Nagas in the North East. He said the party is firm on its political stand since its inception 59 years ago.
Liezietsu said when the 16-Point Agreement was signed by the Government of India with the group which was playing the role of mediation in 1960 the main conflicting group for whom the agreement was proposed was left aside.
He said the agreement completely failed to stop the bloodshed rather it brought more bloodshed.
During this time, this regional political party was formed to give a new direction to the problem for its solution, he said.
