A day after Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh talked tough on the Naga peace talks, NPF Manipur unit, which is part of the ruling coalition here, expressed regret over chief the minister’s statement to a national publication.
In a statement, NPF Manipur unit general secretary (Adm) Honreikhui Kashing said it was regrettable that the chief minister-led delegation sought limiting the ambit of Framework Agreement within the borders of Nagaland. He said the news published on July 15 by a local daily created tension among the peace loving people of Manipur.
Kashing said Nagas in Manipur and other communities in general were provided a ray of hope that they would finally live in peace when the Government of India (GoI) declared its intent to peacefully resolve the Naga political issue, followed by signing of the Framework Agreement between GoI and NSCN (I-M), he added.
Kashing said it was unfortunate that many political parties talked about Manipur’s interest but never tried to understand and accommodate the interest of Nagas, which was one of the major communities in Manipur. 
He asserted that there could not be peace and progress in letter and spirit in the State unless the Naga solution included Manipur too.
The NPF leader appealed to leaders of all political parties and civil society organisations to understand the ground reality of Manipur and maintain mutual respect, while reposing full faith on the Central government and support its efforts to find an amicable solution to the prolonged Naga political issue.
