The former Chief Minister of Nagaland – T R Zeliang, urged the Nagas to join hands and support the negotiating groups to bring the Naga Political issue to a logical conclusion at the earliest as this is the finest time for a solution.

Addressing a press conference in Chumoukedima on Monday, Zeliang reiterated that the political talks between the Government of India (GoI) and NSCN (IM) are positively progressing.

“Currently, all the Naga negotiating groups have collaborated and all 60 MLAs are also together with one voice for the sake of the Naga solution. So why not we all join hands and support both the negotiating groups to arrive at a logical conclusion at the earliest instead of pointing fingers at each other with a political vendetta for personal vested interest,” said Zeliang.

“We expect a solution sooner than later, so let us hope that GoI will bring out the common draft so that before inking the accord, it can be brought to the Naga leaders and all concerned to acknowledge if it is acceptable to us.” Zeliang, currently serves as the Chairman of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Zeliang said that the core committee of the state government on the Naga Political Issue was informed that some competency points are transitional towards a final settlement.

“With such a solution formulation process, we can keep moving forward to reach the final agreement as stated by the Prime Minister,” he said.

For the last many decades, no Prime Minister or Home Minister has come up in this manner with such a positive attitude to solve the Naga Political issue, he said, while strongly maintaining that this is the finest opportunity for both parties, the GoI, and the Nagas to finally resolve the long-protracted Naga Political Issue.

“If we miss this opportunity, I am doubtful that we will be able to maintain this momentum again in the coming years and also for any Indian leader to revisit this chapter with such vigor and concern to solve the Naga Political Issue,” said Zeliang.
