Imphal, Jan 23: The NSCN –IM is not happy with the decision of the Election Commission of India to hold election in Nagaland before a political solution to the Naga issue.
In a statement released by the MIP, GPRN, the outfit said that the decision taken by the GoI / Election Commission of India to hold election is bound to undermine the progress of the ongoing talks between the NSCN and the GoI and become a serious obstacle towards finding an early political solution.
“Imposition of such election is not acceptable to the Naga people who are for an early negotiated political settlement. Therefore, those who advocate for the imposed election does not stand for the interest of the Naga people. We are seriously critical with such people or group as they do not contribute towards finding lasting political solution”, the statement said.
It further added that NSCN-IM reiterated their position for an early political solution that will usher in peace in the whole subcontinent and the GoI must exercise political will to take steps accordingly.
