Leader of Congress Legislature Party Chingwang Konyak has said it was encouraging that leaders from various groups of national workers had met in Dimapur recently to further build the process of reconciliation, which began in Chiang Mai in Thailand. The opposition leader in a press statement said Congress Party believed that Naga problem could only be solved by Nagas themselves as it was nobody else’s problem, and that “it is we who suffer the consequences of our folly or enjoy outcome of our wise actions.” Chingwang said as a representative of then Tuensang Mon People Organization (TMPO), he had attended the 3rd Naga consultative meeting at Bangkok on May 6 and 7, 2002, where he had said that Nagas must follow a policy of forgive and forget to solve outstanding problems. “It is neither glory nor gain for any section of the people to be set apart by factions or groups. Our strength lies only in a unity of vision. If we have neither the will nor the way to settle our differences without violence and factions, then none of us can live in peace,” he said. The Congress leader also said that any dialogue with the Government of India would be fruitful only when the Naga issue was presented with one voice. He hoped that leaders of various Naga national groups would realize the futility of division among the Nagas, and reconcile in the interest of Naga people.
