Lok Sabha MP from Nagaland, C. M. Chang Saturday affirmed that he would raise the Naga issue in the coming monsoon session in the parliament. Speaking to pressmen at his residence in Dimapur, Chang said his earlier efforts to pose questions did not fructify as questions or issues were allowed to be raised on lottery basis. The MP said he had requested the Lok Sabha speaker to allow him to raise issues as he did not get the chance on lottery basis. Given a chance, Chang said he would ask the centre if there was any time frame to solve the Naga issue. The MP said he would also question whether solution to the Naga political problem would be based on package systems. Stating that the Naga issue has been dragging on for a long time where talks have been held for more than 60 times, Chang said there should be a time frame to solve the problem. He also said it was “incorrect” if the centre was thinking of solving the Naga problem by offering packages. “How can Nag solution be made on package? A decision should be made and agreement signed,” Chang said. On the railway line, he said the proposed section of Simaluguri to Naginimora and Amguri to Tuli have been approved. Chang said he would take up the issue so that the processes of the works were expedited. The MP further said DoNER secretary had stated that the road sector in Nagaland was almost a failure. Chang said the secretary also stated that the centre would try to complete the ongoing works first before starting new projects. Meanwhile, in another letter addressed to telecom minister Rajaji, the Lok Sabha MP from Nagaland pointed out that tenures of GM of BSNL have been reduced from two years to one year. He urged upon the minister to review the policy so that officers posted as GM for Nagaland were able to effectively monitor various projects carried out by the BSNL.
