Joint Parliamentary Working Committee (JPWC) of the 11th Nagaland Legislative Assembly has welcomed the decision of the parties involved in “Indo-Naga” political negotiations to hold next round of peace talks in Nagaland.
The JPWC, which met today at the committee room of state Assembly Secretariat, Kohima and adopted certain resolutions, also appealed to the underground groups to end “paper war” through media, which, it described, go against the spirit of signing of covenant of reconciliation. The committee also condemned May 6 firing incident at Mao gate by armed personnel of the Manipur police, who fired upon “peaceful gathering of innocent and unarmed public” which resulted in the death of two “precious lives” and injury to over hundred.
Meanwhile, it also appealed to the Naga Students’ Federation and civil societies to allow the transportation of essentials commodities and emergency requirements of Manipur by relaxing the ongoing blockade.
A joint resolution of the JPWC was signed by NLA speaker Kiyanilie Peseyie, leader of opposition Tokheho and chief minister Neiphiu Rio.
It may be mentioned that 11th NLA November 27 last resolved to constitute a joint parliamentary panel on Naga political issue to carry the voice of the house to all concerned sections including the government of India and the undergrounds.
