TNR for early Naga solution

On the eve of the consultative meet on March 9, convened by the State government, The Naga Rising, expressed support for an early resolution of Naga political issue as desired by the masses that was based on the principle of “give and take”.
TNR said the scheduled meeting on Wednesday was an opportunity to move beyond the practice of passing resolutions and instead to frame a collective response and plan of action.
In an appeal, TNR stressed on an honourable solution as repeatedly assured by the Centre to Naga people since peace talks began 25 years ago.
TNR stressed that negotiations must be based on a “give and take” approach and any agreement signed must be mutually acceptable to both the Centre and Naga political groups (NPGs) and could not be imposed.
It also expressed support to the statement of the Centre’s previous interlocutor RN Ravi, that there was only one peace process, which was inclusive, and that eventually there would be only one agreement as the Naga issue could not be fragmented.
Further, in the context of current impasse in the peace process, The Naga Rising suggested to the would-be participants of the consultative meet to work out a mechanism to conclude the peace process in the interest of a peaceful, inclusive and honourable solution. The NPGs must take a common position/approach on the peace process leaving aside their intractable differences, it appealed.
The Naga Rising suggested to those participating in the consultative meet on Wednesday to vet the appointment of a Peace Initiative or a group of mediators with representatives from all sections of Naga society to work for the convergence of NPGs and help facilitate the signing of a single agreement.
