NSF appeals for early solution

DIMAPUR, AUG 7 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/7/2020 12:53:22 PM IST

Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) has appealed to Government of India (GoI) to make genuine efforts and show political will to resolve the world’s “oldest political issue”. 

NSF president Ninoto Awomi and vice president Dievi Yano further appealed to Centre’s interlocutor and governor RN Ravi to take the peace talks ahead with all seriousness, sincerity and empathy based on Nagas’ “unique history”.

The signatories also expressed the hope that there would be a logical conclusion that would meet the aspirations of Naga youth for a permanent peace in all Naga-inhabited areas and thereby improving the quality of life.  NSF also stressed that early accord should usher in good governance, accountability and sustainable development.

The federation has also expressed its “displeasure over the continued division” among the Nagas even at this crucial juncture of peace talks. It however appreciated the milestone reached by government of India , NSCN (I-M) and NNPGs in showing extraordinary statesmanship, political acumen and patience to conclude the formal talks on October 31, 2019 for an inclusive solution covering all Naga-inhabited areas.

NSF however cautioned that despite progress of talks, any short-sighted propaganda with no vision could lead to confusion and conflict in Naga areas. 

 NSF also appealed to the Naga political groups to lay out clearly post-accord arrangement, governance model and ideology clearly agreed upon and accepted by government of India. 

Before inking the final agreement, NSF called for deliberation with transparency on what was best for the Naga society in the present political context. 

NSF reminded that the Naga political struggle was a people’s movement, and so the sentiment of the entire Naga people in general was that they wanted to have a say. 

Hence the NSF called for disclosure of the agreed points and deliberate on points that are acceptable to the public and for closely reviewing issues obstructing the early signing of permanent peace in the region.

NSF maintained that Nagas have suffered enough for standing up for their unique history and pursuing their common goal and that it stood committed to uphold the Naga identity till sovereignty and integration was achieved.  NSF also reaffirmed that “artificial boundaries and circumstances created in the past” would not dissuade it from asserting the legitimate rights of Naga people for all times to come.
