Rajya Sabha MP from Nagaland, Khekiho Zhimomi has urged upon the prime minister, Dr Manmohan Singh to expedite a workable solution to the “Indo-Naga” political issue. In his letter to Dr Manmohan Singh, Khekiho reminded the former of the “bitter experience” of the Nagas due to New Deli’s backtracking on the implementation of key clauses in the nine and 16 point agreements and failure to effectuate whatever had been percolated in the agreements as special provisions in Article 371A (1) (a) of the constitution of India. Against the backdrop of such skepticism, Khekiho said it was the bounden duty of the prime minister to personally intervene in order that utmost credibility was built between parties to the peace talks. He said the Nagas in general felt that the government of India lacked sincerity towards their problems. Khekiho said that it was possible that doubts about the integrity of the government of India in failing to translate clauses into action in any proposed agreement, as was the case with the mentioned two agreements, might be affecting the speed of the peace process. He appealed to the prime minister to ensure that the authorities build more confidence and put more meaning and purpose into the ongoing peace process so that solution to the political issue was found without further delay.
