14 Naga tribes call for logical Naga solution

Fearing that the final Naga settlement could turn out to be a mirage, leaderships of 14 Naga tribes of Nagaland have appealed to Government of India to work out a mechanism that would bring the peace process to a logical conclusion at the earliest and deliver peace and harmony to the entire North East.

Mentioning that solution was their topmost priority today, the tribes in a statement said any excuse or condition to delay the much-awaited solution therefore would be against the interest of the people. The people of Nagaland were longing for a peaceful, lasting and acceptable solution and such pursuit should not be at the cost of creating another bigger problem, they cautioned.

They said they were made to understand that formal negotiations were over, stressing now was the time for all negotiating parties to come together and sign an inclusive agreement for inclusive solution to the protracted Naga political problem for a lasting peace in “our land”. 

The 14 tribes explained they were extremely worried should the long-awaited solution from the peace talks converted into a “mirage” and the Naga aspirations appeared to be so near yet so far “just because of the deliberate unwillingness of the negotiators to reconcile”. They warned that such a turn of event would be unfortunate. They therefore appealed to “patriotic leaderships” of both the negotiating parties to come together and prioritise interest of the Nagas and pave way for realisation of their desire, which they had been claiming till now to be struggling for. They stressed that enduring peace must come to the people.

Urging the negotiating parties to feel the pulse and desire of the people they claim to work for, the leaderships of the tribes warned that everything would collapse if there was distrust. The joint statement was issued by Ao Senden president, Chubawati Longchar; Angami Public Organization vice president, K.T. Vilie and Eastern Nagaland Peoples’ Organization president Kekongchim, for and on behalf of the 14 Naga tribes.
