Preparations are afoot for the historic 2nd Naga Convention for Reconciliation and Peace under the theme “Let My People Go” scheduled for February 21 and 22 at Kohima local ground. Naga Convention for Reconciliation and Peace, initiated by the FNR, is aimed at stopping fratricidal killings and fostering reconciliation, peace and unity among the different sections of the Naga society, including both the underground and over ground. Though the first convention held at Dimapur last year could not draw much participants as it coincided with the timing of the state assembly electioneering process, this year convention is expected to draw large participants from across the entire Naga-inhabited areas and also official representatives from all the different Naga underground groups. According to the organizers, besides Nagaland delegates from Manipur, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Myanmar are expected to participate in the convention. There will be two keynote speakers- Rev. Dr Wati Aier, Convenor, FNR and Rev.Zhabu Terhuja, former general secretary, NBCC in this year’s convention. As per the programme, the opening session of the convention will begin at 3 pm on February 21 (Saturday) where messages of solidarity from different sections of the Naga society will be presented to be followed by “Celebrate the Naga Spirit” at 5.15 pm. On the second day, there will be interactive session between FNR with church leaders, frontal organizations and public leaders from 8 am to be followed by the most important session — closing session at 10 am — where the statement of commitment for Naga reconciliation will be adopted. The organizers while inviting all the Nagas to the convention requested the delegates to make their own arrangement for travel, food and lodging and also to be punctual in all the programmes. They have also requested all the tribal and organization leaders concerned to report at the registration booth between 9 am to 2 pm on the first day.
