Nagaland home minister Imkong L Imchen Thursday stated that while everybody was exchanging Christmas and New Year gifts, the people were equally optimistic that the Naga political issue should also come to a “logical conclusion” as a New Year gift to Naga people. “I hope that with the dawn of the Happy New Year so many things will be unfolding for the Naga people specially when the Government of India is sincerely determined to bring and offer meaningful and honorable solution to the Naga political issue for which Naga people cannot afford to ignore or but understand its meaningful dynamics,” Imchen stated this in a release here today. He also pointed out that since last year, the people of Nagaland have been experiencing Christmas season as enjoyable as the days before 1990s. “They have a feeling that they are much nearer to God as they celebrate His birthday,” said home minister, while saying that such kind of atmosphere should continue in future. He also attributed the prevailing peaceful atmosphere to good wisdom displayed by all sections of the people both individually and organizations alongside with continued prayers and appeals. “The leadership of the Naga Underground groups has exhibited their statesmanship while conducting crisis resolution thereby bringing not only total cessation of hostility between each other, but also understanding each others view points with appreciation.” he said. Imchen also stated that Naga people were hopeful that with such atmosphere of good will and trust, the Naga national workers would be able to bring about a final resolution of political issue with Government of India at the earliest. Further, he stated that “dynamic and skillful leadership” of Neiphiu Rio as chief minister of the state was fully demonstrated by bringing all sections of people together in his efforts to help find an amicable solution to the vexed Naga issue,a task that has never been easy for any ordinary person. “His broad shoulder could accommodate various diverse opinions and channelize them into a meaningful unity of the Nagas across party lines”, he stated and added that Rio deserved a very joyful Christmas with good tidings for the good things that he has done. Furthermore, the home minister conveyed his Christmas and a New Year greetings to the people on the occasion.
