Accusing the government of India of insincerity over the “Indo-Naga” issued, the Amsterdam-based Naga International Support Centre(NISC) said no proposals were received by NSCN(I-M) general secretary Th.Muivah nor official invitation to discuss the matter in Delhi. According to the e:mail from the NISC, union home secretary G.K.Pillai on September 2009 had announced that the government of India was working on a proposal to solve the conflict and that the proposal would be discussed and negotiated ‘within the constitution of India’. The NISC further said that an indication for a change in India’s approach, attitude or direction came with the replacement of the decade long interlocutor for the peace talks Padmanabhaiah and the repeatedly expressed ‘condition’ that talks should be held within the constitution of India. Quoting Muivah, the NISC said he neither received any proposals even on December 2009 for perusal nor officially asked to agree on visiting Delhi to deliberate on the proposals. “It is not customary to communicate through the press as it is not the highest level which was agreed upon at the onset of the ceasefire and peace talks,” the NISC quoted Muivah. Stating that the people have stepped into 2010 with renewed vigour, the NISC urged India to be sincere in following up what has been agreed and to lift the financial burden from the back of India’s populace. Strongly questioning India’s sincerity on solving the “Indo-Naga” issue and accusing India of repeatedly negating at least two points of the ceasefire agreement, the NISC has urged Delhi to publish its policy on the “Indo-Naga” conflict so that it could “truly be accountable” to the people of the largest democratic country in the world. The NISC said that, by recognizing the ‘unique’ history and situation of the Nagas, the government of India had acknowledged that the history of the Naga nation only became part of the Indian sub continent because of the British colonization. The Naga International Support Center, a human rights organization further stated that the Nagas who wanted an honourable ending to the conflict, one which portrayed and secured mutual respect also have every right to be free as it was India which denied their right to self determination.
