“Dear Shri Modi, you have come to the end of your second term as India’s Prime Minister. I have always held the conviction that only a single-minded determined approach from your end can bring an end to the complex Naga issue. The traditional A, B, C belongs to you — that is, the ability to deliver, a balanced approach the clarity in mind and also the political courage. Hence, I will be only repeating myself that before your second term ends — in fact in the next two months – you can take a final call to bring an end to the Naga issue. As someone who joined Naga politics decades back and as someone who has seen so many ups and downs; I assure you, in all my sincerity, your name will be recorded in golden letters in Naga history if a peace pact is inked now,” wrote SC Jamir.
The letter conveyed the expectations of the Naga people and various delegations for a prompt resolution to the Naga political issue.
Jamir concluded the letter by extending his good wishes for Modi’s administrative and political endeavours, expressing hope that a peace pact would be a well-earned accomplishment during the current period of national history.

Several Naga delegations including the Gaon Borah Federation and leaders have also impressed upon to bring an earlier Solution. Nagas of Nagaland state in particular and the Nagas, in general, are keenly looking towards your political leadership. The Naga Solution will be a true and well-earned feather in your cap as India’s Prime Minister at such a critical juncture of human and our national history of Amritkal. Extending all my good wishes in your administrative and political endeavours”, stated SC Jamir.
