Congress today said it has nothing to do with the centre’s decision not to hammer out solution to the Naga political problem outside the ambit of constitution of India. NPCC president, K V Pusa said the state Congress was not a party to the negotiation therefore it has nothing to talk about the type of solution. He however asserted that any solution should be honourable and acceptable to all sections of Naga people. “Whether to accept Indian constitution or not is not our concern. It is up to them to decide” Pusa said. He said that talking of expediting the talks by Congress should not be construed as an authority to talk for or against the Naga political issue. “As a citizen of Nagaland I have every democratic right to express my concern about Naga political issue and also in solving the problem once and for all” the NPCC chief said. He said that appealing to the centre and the Naga groups for early solution to the problem should not be taken otherwise. Pusa also said the NPCC has urged prime minister, Manmohan Singh to put effort in hastening the process of “Indo-Naga” political problem with resoluteness to ensure that a concrete and tangible result was arrived at. He said that a cloud of despair and anxiety loomed large in Nagaland among all sections of Naga people on seeing the slow process of negotiation on Naga issue despite wasting several precious years. “The once undaunted hope and aspirations that the elusive decades old Naga problem would be resolved for good have slowly simmering down and is gradually replaced by spell of skepticism among Naga people” the NPCC in a letter to Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh said. The Congress said the political events in the past reminded Naga people that the government of India and Naga undergrounds had entered several peace accords, notably the 1975 Shillong Accord, ceasefire with the NSCN (I-M) in 1997 and NSCN (K) in 2001 and this has been trailed by over 60 rounds of talks between the two entities but till today no substantive agreement has emerged out of the “exhaustive parleys”. “While on the gloomy side, the so-called ceasefire ground rules have become a nuisance as blatant violation had taken place from the day one and the subsequent situations are catastrophic tell-tale of human tragedies” the congress told the PM.
