Naga peace: CM Rio, Zeliang meets PM Modi, seeks compromise formula: Reports

The dialogues of Naga peace process has reportedly been fast-tracked and is on course towards a solution as CM Neiphiu Rio along with other top leaders on Wednesday called on

The dialogues of Naga peace process has reportedly been fast-tracked and is on course towards a solution as CM Neiphiu Rio along with other top leaders on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

During the meet, the Nagaland delegation apprised Prime Minister Modi about the developments related to peace talks in the state and also conveyed that a compromise formula has to come from the Government of India, informed sources.

Earlier yesterday, Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio along with UDA chairman TR Zeliang among others called on Union Home Minister Amit Shah. The meeting with Shah has also been termed positive.

While there is no details on what transpired during the meet, sources told Northeast Live that the meeting with HM Shah was positive.

Meanwhile, sources also informed Northeast Live that Government of India representative and Peace talks interlocutor AK Mishra will be camping in Nagaland for a week and hold meetings with political parties as well.

CM Rio, UDA chairman TR Zeliang and Deputy CM Y Patton also met interlocutor AK Mishra in Delhi earlier in the day.

The National People’s Front on Tuesday demanded Centre’s push to ensure a solution to the decades-old issue of Naga-Peace talks.

Earlier on April 9, the Parliamentary Committee on Naga Political Issue held a crucial meeting in Kohima.

It is also to be mentioned that the top political leaders of Nagaland have been pushing for a solution at the earliest, even urging the NSCN-IM and the Government of India to try and come to a middle point.

In 2015, the Centre signed the Framework Agreement with the Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN-IM) after 18 years of truce. The talks were halted in October 2019 over issues pertaining to the agreement.

The NSCN-IM remained firm on its demand for a separate Naga flag and constitution. This is believed to be the main reason for the delay in a final deal to settle the issue.

The Centre also signed “Agreed Position” with seven other Naga national political groups in 2017.
