Indian Interlocutor RN Ravi’s visit to Nagaland was significant. Even though there are criticisms from certain sections of the people from Nagaland over the concealing of what was really talk with each stakeholders regarding the years long unsettled dispute between the Government of India and the NSCN-IM, the visit cannot be taken lightly as it is a move to sort out a final settlement. Leaving aside some of the relevant question asked by another section of people from Nagaland over the consideration of NSCN-IM as the main factor to solve the age old issue, the move of the Indian interlocutor is co-incidental with the political crisis in the state. It is a fact that TR Zeliang group is camping at Kaziranga to topple the Shurhozelie Liezietsu led government by defecting from the party. Political uncertainty will definitely be a factor to hinder any sort of move for solution to problems of the very society. And no wander why the Indian Government sent Interlocutor RN Ravi at this crucial hour. The recent development in the state of Nagaland is indirectly related to what is expected to be happened in the state of Manipur as the NSCN-IM’s agenda is no more a hidden one. Central government authority’s promises is skeptical as we see Manipur burnt in the year 2001 over a single mistake committed by them. Bringing a lasting solution with the NSCN-IM cannot skip the Manipur’s question. For sure the NSCN-IM is not going to fulfil on what it had dreamt with the state of Nagaland but promises made to the so call Naga (cadres and sympathisers of NSCN-IM) from Manipur will be the last option for the NSCN-IM leaders. Narendra Modi government is kin to end the issues of the NSCNIM without bothering other groups operating in the region. While attempting a lasting solution, we cannot simply believe to the Modi government to his promise of safeguarding the territorial integrity of Manipur. Because everything is possible in politics. Thank God the proposed tripartite talk with the frontal body of NSCN-IM, Manipur Government and the Government of India scheduled to hold some days back has been postponed. Or else the outcome of the talk may be another headache. Nonetheless the talk is surely going to hold in the coming days. The issue of the NSCN-IM and its frontal body is a ticking time bomb at which the government of Manipur need to tackle it carefully. Another issue which have the potential of breaking the harmony of the state is the ILPS or in other word the demands for introduction of legislation for protection of the indigenous people of the state. Conflicting ideology between two communities of the state which has been staying from time immemorial had made the issue more critical leaving the government helpless. But the issue is only at the state of dormant. It will erupt one day. Another bigger issue that the state government should ponder upon is the draconian act AFSPA which had maimed, slaughtered, murdered as many as 1500 people in alleged encounter. The matter is pending at the Supreme Court and the kinds of atrocities committed under the act will surely come up again. Sincere appeal to the government is that “please find a solution before the fire broke out”.
