Naga civil bodies including Naga Hoho, Naga Mothers’ Association and Naga Students’ Federation October 27 petitioned the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, asking him to carry forward the peace process with all sincerity so as to bring out a “logical conclusion” at the earliest. In a joint letter to Manmohan, the presidents of Naga Hoho, NMA and NSF demanded unconditional release of all Naga political prisoners/detainees arrested during the cease-fire period. On October 26 last, the Naga civil societies had drafted a four-point recommendation, to send it to Prime Minister, on various pertinent issues confronting Naga people during an emergency consultative meet at Heritage, Kohima (old DC Bungalow). They said that despite repeated reminders, Centre has so far shown a lackadaisical attitude towards Naga political problem and that no conclusive political resolution has been taken till date. “We strongly believe that mere periodic holding of political talk without a definite conclusion will only deepen the political predicament,” the signatories said. According to Naga bodies, the vital setback, which could weigh down the peace process, was detention and arrest of Naga national workers by different government agencies under various acts and laws. “This is a matter of great concern that deeply hurt the sentiments of the Naga people as it is against the spirit of cease-fire agreement,” the signatories said.
