Nagalim: Further talks on the peace process
Below an article published by The Telegraph India :
The general secretary of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah), Thuingaleng Muivah, will have another round of talks with the Centre’s representatives in the last week of April before leaving India for an undisclosed destination.
NSCN (I-M) sources, however, said they had not yet fixed the date for talks though it would be held in New Delhi.
“We have not fixed the date for talks,” the information and publicity secretary of the Government of People’s Republic of Nagalim (GPRN), Jacob Shaiza, said.
He, however, said that before going abroad again, Muivah would have another round of talks with the Centre’s interlocutor, R.S. Pandey.
Shaiza said Muivah was now meeting representatives of various Naga organisations, tribal Hohos, civil society and the Church.
“Our leader is too busy meeting people these days,” the outfit’s spokesman said.
He said Muivah would be meeting more people for a few days before leaving for New Delhi along with the outfit’s brass.
The chief principal secretary of the GPRN, Samson Jojo, also said they had not yet fixed the date for talks, adding these would be held in the last week of this month. “We are yet to fix the date for talks,” he added.
The outfit’s sources, however, said before leaving for the next round of talks, Muivah was busy meeting the Naga leaders from all sections of society to reach a consensus on ways to carry forward the peace process. He is also briefing the Naga organisations on the status of the current peace process to dispel any misgivings.
“Naga organisations from all over Nagalim are queuing up to meet our ato kilonser (prime minister),” Shaiza said.
Pandey during his visit to the state had also said that talks would be held this month.
He met Nagas from a cross-section of society to know their views on the current peace process. The Naga organisations have asserted that the Nagas would not accept any conditional solution. The outfit said the “sovereignty” of Nagalim would not be compromised at any cost.
