R.S. Pandey, the Government of India’s Interlocutor to the ongoing negotiations with the NSCN (I-M) has said an early settlement was desired by all and opined that the Naga people must also play a crucial and complementary role in this regard.
Talking to Nagaland Post here Sunday, Pandey likened the Naga people as an important part of the Naga political jigsaw without whose participation, any settlement would be incomplete.
According to Pandey, Naga people and their various civil and tribal organsitions could alleviate reconciliation to a wider scope by promoting understanding with various groups.
He said the people, who have suffered the brunt of six decades of violence, could contribute a lot by choosing to understand the constraints faced by all negotiating parties concerned.
He said the future of the upcoming generations has become critical due to delay in arriving at a solution and it was up to the people to engage themselves to the task of promoting understanding for permanent peace.
He said the government of India recognizing the uniqueness of the Nagas incorporated the unique status under Article 371(A).He said no state in the country, enjoyed such a privilege as Nagaland, which became the smallest state as the 16th member of the union in 1963.
He said “we are living in 21st century and the urgency for moving along with the changes and time is urgent. Nagas cannot afford to live only in dreams. They must think out of the box to give their future generations a stable and sound foundation”.
