KOHIMA, Feb 21 (NEPS):

Governor of Nagaland PB Acharya again announced the Nagaland Government’s stand on the resolution of the Naga political issue. He was addressing the Third Session of the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) on Wednesday.
“In this very House, in the First Session of the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly, I had mentioned that the top agenda of my government is early resolution of the Naga political issue and that we will work with all stakeholders for a solution that is honorable, inclusive, sustainable and acceptable to the people,” the Governor recalled.

Acharya reminded the House that after the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) Government was sworn in on March 8, 2018, the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) was set up. Then PAC along with PDA Legislators had a joint consultative meeting with Naga tribal hohos and civil society organizations and resolved to urge all Naga political groups to join the peace talks in order to achieve an inclusive solution, he added.
Governor also stated about holding of the consultative meeting of all 60 Legislators of NLA on September 18, 2018 and consensually deciding to re-constitute the Joint Legislators’ Forum (JLF) on Naga political issue and to pursue the Naga political issue to its logical conclusion.
“The PDA Government is committed to facilitate an early resolution of the Indo Naga political issue through a negotiated agreement that honors the unique history and rights of the Nagas,” he added.
Appreciating the efforts of Government of India for ensuring that they moved closer to a solution “that is inclusive, honorable and acceptable to Nagas,” Acharya said “With the concerted efforts of the Tribal Hohos and mass based civil society organizations, the Church, NGOs and NNPGs, different groups have now come together and this seems to be most opportune time for the Naga political groups to resolve the decades old Naga political imbroglio so that we achieve (a) lasting peace.”
