No group has mandate of entire Naga society: Nagaland MLAs

Posted by Ramesh Khati on September 9, 2009

Kohima(Zee News): Nagaland legislators on Tuesday vowed for a unified voice to find a lasting settlement to the vexed Naga problem since “no group has the mandate of the entire Naga society”.

The ruling DAN government had already constituted an ad hoc committee to form a common Naga platform for a unified voice to which apex tribal council Naga Hoho had extended its support, assembly secretariat sources said after the MLAs deliberated on it in an eight-hour-long meeting on Naga political conflict.

Both the ruling and opposition members were unanimous in their assertions that the ongoing Naga peace talks should be expedited and the process must accommodate aspirations of all sections of the Naga society, sources said.

The meeting was called by Speaker Kiyanilie Peseyie since the opposition Congress during the last assembly session suggested to him to hold a discussion on the issue inviting all members the house, and the proposal was also supported by the ruling alliance.

The deliberation, attended by 58 out of 60 members and member of Rajya Sabha, entrusted Peseyie, Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio and Opposition leader Chingwang Konyak to hold further meetings of legislators on the Naga issue.
