Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president K Therie called on governor RN Ravi at Raj Bhavan in Kohima on Wednesday afternoon. And in the meeting that lasted about 45 minutes, Therie welcomed Ravi to Nagaland with the added responsibility as governor.

Reacting to the governor’s recent statement that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was keen on concluding the negotiations within three months, the NPCC president said the people were equally keen for an early solution. Drawing strength from past history on the role of Congress and its erstwhile founding fathers on Statehood and the role of late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in enabling the present peace and negotiations by assuring talks without pre-conditions 28 years back on May 19, 1991 at DDSC ground, Therie expressed satisfaction that peace had dawned in Nagaland and “we are nearing final settlement that has been awaited for decades”.
Admitting the difficulties and realities of negotiations, he also stressed that 22 years of negotiations without solution was unreasonable. Elaborating on the difficulties in negotiations due to the issues of sovereignty and integration, he said Nagas had lost many lives, wealth, health and opportunities. 
Mentioning that what was giveable by Indian Parliament was equally important to what was desired by the Nagas, Therie emphasised that the solution to the vexed Naga issue lay within the framework of better political structures, resettlement and both long and short-term economic packages while respecting the genuine sentiments of the people. Urging the governor to proclaim solution of the Naga problem, Therie assured support of the entire rank and file of Congress in this regard.
He also requested Ravi to help youth pursuing professional courses obtain bank loans for their studies as enjoyed by students in rest of the country. He expressed happiness on the governor’s assurance to take up the issue. Therie further expressed happiness at the governor giving him a patient hearing and assuring him of an early solution. Ravi told Therie that “hearings” were over and that he was waiting to hear from the Naga national workers after their consultations. He also hoped that three-month timeframe was realistic. This was stated in a press release by communications department of NPCC.
