Naga Peace Talks: NSCN(K) expected to initiate political dialogue with GoI soon By SOLOMON SHAIKH

The Khango and Isaak led NSCN K will be initiating their political dialogues with the Government of India within a week and it is believed that both sides will be diligently working towards officially signing the Ceasefire pact which will usher in peace and development in the state.
In a major development the organization through it’s MIP also informed that Chishi Naga the Central Finance in charge of the outfit had been assigned additional responsibilities to look into the overall finance of the Kohima district. All financial matters relating to collection of taxes and other pertinent matters in Kohima will be dealt by Chishi Naga. It is learnt that Chishi Naga is stationed in Kohima and the outfit has sternly warned that no further notifications will be provided in the media to restrain imposters who are collecting taxes in the name of the outfit. Military action will be initiated against imposters without any further notice. The outfit had apprised the general public and concerned departments that without the consent and sanction of Chishi Naga no contributions should be offered to any imposters.
The outfit had sternly warned V Tucca and Wilson who are collecting taxes from the general public in Dimapur to stop collecting money in the name of the outfit. Military action is being initiated against both the imposters the sources said.
Isaac Chishi is scheduled to travel to New Delhi for resumption of the Peace talks and the outcome of the talks will be unraveled shortly. It is learnt that the Khango led NSCN-K will be establishing their Monitoring Cell in Dimapur immediately after returning from New Delhi to monitor the ongoing political situations confronting the Naga Nation. The Young General Secretary of the outfit Isaac seems to be optimistic on the four points placed before the GOI.
It is noteworthy to mention here that the Khango-led NSCN (K) had placed a four-point demand to the GoI for consideration: Lift ban imposed on NSCN and removal of terrorist tag;
Rescind the bounties placed on NSCN leaders;

 Repeal AFSPA/DDA on the enforced Naga areas and unconditional release of NSCN cadres arrested after the abrogation of ceasefire and undergoing trials or serving sentences in different prisons across the state/country.
It is believed that on Signing the Peace pact all Khango-led NSCN K leaders lodged in various jails of India will be unconditionally released.
“Many of the top functionaries of the outfit are languishing in jail and without their participation the talks may not progress as desired “, Isaac commented.
“I convey my due regards to my comrades in arms who suffered incarceration despite unending tortures at the hands of the adversaries and we are trying to get them released as earliest as possible”, Isaac remarked.
The GOI seems to be displaying sincerity to end the insurgency through Peace talks but the much hyped Peace talks is yet to bring in positive results. Is it due to the delaying tactics of the bureaucrats or the government of the day is fiddling with times. Both the factors cannot be ruled out.
The Frame work agreement led by the NSCN-IM is yet to be finalised in its entirety. The Neiphiu Rio led government is showing utmost sincerity to bring all the factions on board and Naga civil societies were one of the major factors which contributed immensely to end the ongoing war. Naga Nationalism has its own beautiful unique features. Unlike other NE states, civil societies plays a prominent role with regard to peace resolutions and it cannot be denied that the GOI and the state government considers the participation of the Naga civil societies as a formidable asset.
