NPCC has sought to set the record straight regarding its party’s stand on the Naga issue following a statement from the NSCN (I-M) that “the Congress was not for Naga politics but Indian politics” and that owing to which it “could not be trusted”.
Stating this, NPCC president, I. Imkong reiterated that it was only the Congress party under its leader and former prime minister late P.V.Narasimha Rao,who during a public meeting in Dimapur, had accorded recognition to the Naga issue as a political issue, which needed political will and political decision for a lasting solution .
Imkong said late Narasimha Rao’s statement had helped pave the way for a political talk between the government of India and the NSCN (I-M). He also pointed out that it was during the first UPA government that the political talk between the two sides, was taken up at the ministerial level from that of bureaucratic level. Imkong reminded that the prime minister had recently expressed the government of India’s sincerity to expedite the negotiation towards an honorable settlement.
“These are but few concrete measures initiated by the Congress in the course of the Naga political struggle,” the NPCC chief said. Imkong also said that the Congress, as a mature political party and leading the UPA government at the centre, would not take any hasty decision against the interest of the people. He called upon all like minded persons to come together and work with a common vision and goal, towards finding an honorable solution acceptable to all sections of the people.
