Centre’s emissary to meet NSCN-IM, NNPGs leaders

The Centre’s respresntative for Naga political talks, AK Mishra, will meet the Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah) and Working Committee of National Naga Political Groups (NNPGs) leaders in Nagaland. Mishra will arrive in Nagaland on April 18.

A senior official in Nagaland who does not want to be named told ET that Mishra during his week-long stay will also meet the Parliamentary Core Committee on the Naga political issue.

Last year, Mishra took over as the interlocutor from Nagaland governor RN Ravi who was moved to Tamil Nadu.

Nagaland chief minister Neiphu Rio on Wednesday met Prime minister Narendra Modi. Rio along with other members of the core committee also met Union home minister Amit Shah.

Parliamentary Committee on Naga Political Issue comprises all the 60 members of the Nagaland legislative assembly and the two members of Parliament from Nagaland. Parliamentary Core Committee on Naga Political Issue was in New Delhi seeking to expedite the ongoing talks with Naga groups. A conglomerate of seven groups, the Working Committee of Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs), have wrapped up discussion with the Centre.

However, there is a stalemate between the Government of India and NSCN-IM over the contentious issue of separate flag and Constitution. NSCN-IM has been demanding a separate flag and Constitution which the Centre had rejected.

Chairman of NSCN-IM, Q Tucu, recently stated that the ball is now in the court of India as NSCN has made its stand very loud and clear that the Naga political solution cannot be finalised without the Naga national flag and the Naga constitution (Yehzabo) that represents the Naga political entity as a nation.

NSCN-IM on Thursday stated it has single-handedly fought against India security forces. In a statement the outfit stated, “Let history be the living witness to testify that the NSCN stood alone at the hardest times of the Naga national struggle. We fought single-handedly against the mighty Indian security forces and also against the misguided Nagas (mercenaries) that were given shelter and made to operate from the Indian Army camps.”
