Expressing resentment over the non-finalisation of the ‘Framework Agreement’, the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) urged both the negotiating sides to respect one another and come to a solution that is respectable and honourable.

In a release issued by its president L Seth on Saturday, PDA stated that it has been keenly observing the political scenario of the Naga peace talks and finds it disappointing that the talks have come to a deadlock-like-situation.

The party believes that true peace and harmony in the region will come only when this talk is finalised and implemented, it further stated.

The Northeastern region has faced so many problems both from the insurgents and the military forces. It was of great joy to see Prime Minister Narendra Modi declaring a major step in concluding the peace talks on the signing ceremony of the ‘Framework Agreement’ on August 30, 2015. But the declaration has not yet been materialised so far which is really disappointing, it stated.

PDA believes that the talks will soon achieve a breakthrough, and the breakthrough will be possible if all the commitments and agreements in the past are respected and honoured, it stated.

Further, assemblies of any state passing resolutions or decisions opposing the ‘Framework Agreement’ shall be treated as an attempt to stop the peace and harmony to prevail. The party will not accept such resolutions passed or to be passed through tooth and nail, it stated.

The party reaffirms its stand to the fact and supports that the only true solution can come in the form of a mutually agreed agreement i.e. the ‘Framework Agreement’ of August 3, 2015, it added.
