The ruling Nagaland Peoples’ Front (NPF) has decided to temporarily shelve its ambitious party expansion programme after the union Home ministry put certain reservations over it due to the ongoing peace process with the NSCN (I-M). Senior NPF leader, K.G. Kenye on Monday revealed to media persons that the programme for the party expansion was temporarily shelved following certain overlapping of the proposals made by the government of India in its ongoing peace talks with the NSCN (I-M). By mere coincidence or accidentally, there were certain areas where there was overlapping of proposals in the ongoing peace dialogue and the proposal made by the NPF for which the union ministry of home affairs has certain reservation, the NPF leader said. Due to this, the party has temporarily shelved the proposed expansion of the party to the entire Naga inhabited areas of Nagaland, Manipur and Assam states. The NPF had earlier proposed to change its nomenclature from Nagaland peoples’ Front to Naga People’s Front and to expand the party activities to the entire Naga inhabited areas of Nagaland, Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Preadesh. In what could be a rare case, the union home ministry intervened and in view of the ongoing dialogues and peace process had suggested the election commission not to grant separate recognition to the NPF as a political party of the entire Naga inhabited areas.
