The three-day Naga Consultative Meet under the theme “One Dream, One Future” will begin at Hotel Japfu here from 9.30 am tomorrow. A number of delegates including 15 overseas Nagas from Australia, UK, USA, Japan and Korea have already arrived in the state capital to take part in the historic meet. Representatives of all the political parties in the state except the Congress, all apex civil organizations, NGOs, student bodies, church and all Naga underground factions except one are expected to attend the meet. Talking to media persons today, Z Lohe, who is the co-convenor of the meet, said, “We’ve extended invitation to everybody. But it’s the liberty of an individual or a group of individuals to decide.” Asserting that the meeting was not aimed at getting any political mileage or popularising any individual or group, he said all efforts were made to strengthen the Naga unity. “If anyone misconstrues the initiative, it would be very unfortunate,” he opined. The meet would mainly focus on two issues - strengthening the reconciliation process and critically examining the Naga political aspiration. “It’s time for us to be more realistic than remaining theoretical,” he added. Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio, who is the chief convenor of the meet, will deliver the keynote address during the opening session to be followed by speeches by Rev. Louliehu Yimshung, founding member and Coordinator of Global Indigenous Prayer Network, Australia, Prof. Paul Pimomo and Dr Visier Sanyii, Education and Advocacy Officer, ACT for Peace Australia. There will be an interaction among the representatives of various organizations in attendance and constitution of resolution committee during the session which will be chaired by Dr TM Lotha, chairman, PAC. The next session will start at 2 pm with presentations on various topics by the selected delegates.
