The 5th anniversary of the Framework Agreement (FA) signed between the government of India and National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) was observed at the conference hall of Zeme Naga Council in Manipur’s Tamenglong district on Monday.

“Now is the time for all the Naga people to forgive and forget each other’s mistakes and should keep aside all our political differences, religious, tribalism, factionalism, etc and embrace one another as one family member in Naga nation,” said Dr Aku.

On the occasion, he also informed that joint tribe’s councils including Inpui, Liangmai, Rongmei and Zeme peoples have reaffirmed the decision to support the framework agreement signed by chief negotiator Th Muiva for Naga nation.
