Government of India’s Representative and Interlocutor for Naga Peace Talks, R.N Ravi and Working Committee (WC) of the  Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) held a closed door meeting Saturday in New Delhi and deliberated on the proposed “Upper House”.

Highly placed sources informed Nagaland Post that the meeting was held between the 20-member WC NNPGs delegation led by its convenor, N Kitovi Zhimomi and Ravi, who is also the Governor of Nagaland. 

The source informed that the issue of the proposed “Upper House” in Nagaland dominated the meeting and that the negotiating parties deliberated, in detail, the composition and functions of the “Upper House”. “The meeting was mainly around the details of the proposed Upper House. We are working on the details so that a draft agreement could be finalised at the earliest,” said the source.

It may be recalled that after concluding the negotiations over contentious issues on October 31, 2019, the negotiating parties have been working to smoothen the rough edges of the final agreement. Earlier on February 24, 2020 meeting, Ravi had asked NNPGs to “come clear on composition of upper house” and to “work on finalising their draft”.

Post February 24 meeting, in an exclusive interview to Nagaland Post, both Ravi and Kitovi had admitted that the negotiating parties wanted “detailed clarity on few issues to finalise the draft agreement”.

Kitovi had told Nagaland Post that whatever the two negotiating parties have agreed in principle during negotiations, that concluded on October 31, 2019, have to be finalised and then the same would be forwarded to the Parliament. Earlier on February 23, Kitovi had rubbished speculations that NNPGs were negotiating only for Nagas of Nagaland. He reiterated that special status like separate Regional Territorial Council has been worked out for Nagas living outside Nagaland.
