Thousands Participate In A Rally In Nagaland To Demand A Quick End To Naga Peace Talks
In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Nagaland People’s Action Committee (NPAC) asked for a prompt resolution to the “Naga political issue without further delay.”
On Friday, hundreds of people protested in Dimapur, Nagaland, calling for a swift resolution to the Naga peace settlement.
A memorandum addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and requesting an immediate resolution to the “Naga political issue without further delay” was submitted to local authorities by the Nagaland People’s Action Committee (NPAC), which organized the protests.
The political negotiations between the Union government and the Naga negotiators are now in their 25th year, according to the memo, which was sent through Nagaland Governor Jagdish Mukhi.
The memorandum stated that the entire process had severely damaged the entire system of governance.
‘The unresolved political issue has heralded in an unimaginable cycle of corruption at all levels, crippling public health care, education, and overall infrastructure developments which are in shambles for obvious reasons, to say the least,’ it said.
The memo went on to say that “in the name of political issues, threats and intimidations have stifled the growth of a perceived Naga society, which you (PM) assured would be a vibrant one.”
The memo also claimed that the state’s unemployment and corruption were caused by the Naga peace process’s delays.
Numerous Naga organizations and groups from the civil society either took part in or supported the public rally.
