Fresh delaying tactics

The well organised consultative meeting on Naga political issue was called by the Government of Nagaland on 15/10/20 at the State Banquet Hall, Chief Minister’s Residential Complex, Kohima where various political parties, public organisation, church leaders including all the prominent leaders and intellectuals attended the meeting for a virtual discussion as an array of hope for early Naga political solution. However, it was observed that the meeting was completely overshadowed by the inclination of the higher authority to deny what is right and go with the majority instead of doing the right thing, in the name of democracy thus far.

The meeting continued upto 4:00 Pm and finally landed at a 7-point resolution which includes the No.6 resolution as follows, “quote-unquote” Appealed to the negotiating groups to come together under a spirit of oneness, mutual trust and understanding with sincerity and commitment towards achieving “One Solution for One People as early as possible”, which means it indicates another fresh delaying tactics to continue the same situation and the same environment for the lowest strata of population in Nagaland. In the end, the rich will become richer and the poor will become poorer, as is the ground reality classification of class in Nagaland. In other words, the people who are enjoying high status, positions will continue, but many without any welfare, facilities, and those unemployed youths even with having the same qualifications in their respective discipline/academic will suffer. In such a situation we need to go for a firm resolution where we can even fix the duration, date, month, year for the final resolution. Otherwise the matter will go on indefinitely, because nobody knows, only God knows when all the factions will be able to unite together, and under what banner, “one solution for one people” will take place? The word ‘as early as possible’ is only an illusion and obscure. The resolution itself is more or less a negative approach and there is as such no seriousness as per the present context of Naga Political Solution. How long will such a situation continue in Nagaland?  The more we talk about integration and unity, the more disintegration and disunity will take place in our Holy land.
