Nagas outside speak out

A week has passed since the Centre struck peace deal with NSCN-IM. But much to utter surprise the government has yet to publish the in detail raising doubts over the intention of both the parties.

The Naga International Support Center asked the government to make the pact public to allay any apprehension.

In a press statement released to media on Monday, the organization said the delay could result in losing the good will and support for the Accord.  

It further asked the government to release all Naga political prisoners, including the most prominent one named Ningkan Shimray who was arrested and convicted for waging war against the state.

 Talking Peace and signing an agreement to that effect should result in all troops to be withdrawn and the Armed Forces Special Powers Act abolished, demanded the organization.

The organization said to genuinely take care of the well being of the Naga Peoples the Pan Naga Council has to have full power; the power which now rests with the states in which Naga Peoples live. Otherwise this accord is nothing more than a variation of the Shillong accord.

 The Pan Naga Council has to be duly elected by the Naga People, it said adding that the ban against Nagas entering their homeland should be lifted.
