It’s time for 60 MLAs led by CM to act positively, says Dr. Jamir

Veteran Naga politician and former governor and chief minister, Dr. SC Jamir on Thursday categorically asserted that it was now time for all the 60 elected representatives led by chief minister to act positively vis-à-vis Naga political solution.
Dr. Jamir’s statement comes close on the heels of the meeting held between Core Committee on Naga Political Issue delegation led by chief minister Neiphiu Rio and Centre’s representative on Naga political issue AK Mishra in Delhi on Thursday. Dr. Jamir said: “As we stand today– second week of September – we know everyone of the stakeholders are not sincere. This is the juncture when we ought to stay away from any kind of Lip Service politics and double standards.”
He said that the MLAs were morally obliged to step aside to “facilitate” a solution, something they have pledged.
“But almost proving the old phrase, Promises are made to be broken, our legislators have not done it so far. They should do it at the earliest. This is the moment of history– to make sacrifices. Mr Chief Minister, are you ready for it? The recent track record gives some other indications,” Dr. Jamir stated.
Once the chief minister leads in announcing the same, Dr. Jamir said all other legislators would be compelled to step down. “The Govt of India and the Naga negotiators and leaders will also come under intense pressure and solution will be at our doorsteps,” he said. (Full text on p-6)
