Naga peace package to be ready by November

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 7, 2009

New Delhi, Sep 6 (PTI) Aiming at putting an end to the six-decade-old Naga insurgency, the Centre is trying to bring all underground and tribal groups of Nagaland under a single roof and hammer out a new political and economic solution acceptable to all.

The package, which will be ready and placed before the Naga groups by November, includes financial largesse, greater devolution of powers, special steps for the protection of Naga culture and heritage besides others.

“Under the Indian Constitution, there are many issues, currently with the Centre, which could be given to the states.

We are looking into these powers which could be offered as part of the package,” a top Home Ministry official said.

However, the Centre is cautious that such a move does not disrupt the federal structure of the country but encourages other insurgent groups to come to the negotiating table.
