Lone Rajya Sabha MP from Nagaland Khekiho Zhimomi Friday requested the members of the Upper House to urge the union government to reconsider the decision of extension of Disturbed Area Act (DAA) in Nagaland be withdrawn.
Raising the issue of extension of DDA in Nagaland for a period of another eight months, Khekiho said the extension was against the very spirit of peace process that was set in motion by initiating talks with “Naga Political Groups”, and the prevailing peace and congenial atmosphere in Nagaland.
During his special mention, the MP also said Naga people were now undergoing an internal reconciliation by brining all section of the people together, and that general public was feeling free and secure.
He further underscored that extension of DAA had come as a bolt from the blue for the people of Nagaland against the backdrop of prevailing peace in the state.
Khekiho went on to point out that undesirable atmosphere of mutual distrust and misunderstanding in the shadow of which the ordinary people had to undergo untold misery and suffering in the past would see a resurgence leading to restoration of the status quo ante.
“The peace process having made such headway, it would be unimaginable to visualize such unseemly situation,” the MP added.
Union home minister P. Chidambaram on November 1 had informed that the period of ‘Disturbed Area’ in Nagaland has been extended from October 20, 2010 to June 30, 2011 under the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958.
