Terming as “legitimate” the resentment of the ENPO against lack of development in their region, the NPCC, however, has appealed the Organization to reconsider their stand.
NPCC president, S. I. Jamir said that the Naga people’s longing for peace and reconciliation have never been more forthcoming than the present initiative of FNR. Pointing out that the Nagas have expressed their willingness and taken concrete practical steps to reconcile with one another and unite for lasting “Indo-Naga” political solution, the Congress appealed to the eastern Naga brothers to reconsider their stand in the interest of the Nagas in general.
The NPCC also urged the ENPO to give opportunity to the DAN government led by chief minister Neiphiu Rio stating that the government of the day, irrespective of whichever political party was at power, existed to address all outstanding issues.
The Congress said it was a matter of fact that the development gaps created in nearly 50 years of statehood could not be resolved with any short-term strategy but asserted that all attempts must be made to resolve the issues amicably across the table. Taking into consideration both political and developmental dimensions of the issue, the Congress expressed its openness to make contributions in whatever ways it can in formulating long-term systematic approach to address “this chronic problem” on war-footing. The Congress also said there were no two opinions on development gaps both in physical infrastructure development and employment sector.
