Parliamentary Working Committee of Joint Legislature Forum(JLF) on Nagaland Political Issue held a meeting on December 19 in the Committee Room of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly under the chairmanship of Zhaleo Rio chairman JLF cum Speaker-in –charge to deliberate on the Naga political issue.

According to commissioner and secretary NLA, Benjamin Newmai, after deliberations where chief minister Neiphiu Rio and members from various political parties, took part, it was unanimously resolved to appeal to the government of India to “expedite the ongoing Indo-Naga political dialogue” so as to arrive at an early and negotiated settlement that was honourable and acceptable to the people. 

The house also resolved to acknowledge the contributions and sacrifices of all sections especially the Naga nationalists and their families for having “selflessly fought and worked for the rights of Nagas”. It also put on record appreciation on the role of civil societies, mass-based civil society organisations, church, tribal hohos, NGOs and other sections for their positive contribution towards the making the Naga political issue reach thus far. The house also acknowledged the efforts towards unity and reconciliation.

The JLF also expressed appreciation of the government of India’ s sincerity in ongoing negotiations and its “accommodative and inclusive approach” besides its widespread consultations with all sections. The JLF also welcomed the participation of all different Naga national political groups who have joined the negotiations with the sincere objective of resolving the “Indo-Naga political conflict.” 

JLF also expressed appreciation to various organisations, civil society groups and masses for organising peaceful and democratic rallies appealing for ‘early resolution of the Indo-Naga political problem.”

JLF also expressed condolences on the demise of late ‘Gen(rtd)’Kholi Konyak on December 12 at New Delhi and that his “contributions and sacrifices” towards the Naga political movement will be forever acknowledged by future generations. It also reiterated the stand of the government of Nagaland and the state assembly to “pave way for any alternative arrangement” in the event of political solution that is honourable and acceptable to the people.

JLF also placed on record its commitment towards the issue of integration of all Naga contiguous areas under one administrative umbrella and appealed to all sections especially civil society groups and hohos to have confidence in strengthening of Naga family by coming together and collectively work towards unity.
