RN Ravi, Muivah hold ‘meeting’ in Dimapur
DIMAPUR | Sep 10
RN Ravi, the Government of India’s Interlocutor, who is also the Governor of Nagaland, and Th Muivah, General Secretary of the NSCN-IM, held a ‘meeting’ on Monday in Dimapur.
Sources informed Newmai News Network on Tuesday that NSCN-IM general secretary, Th Muivah and RN Ravi held “an informal meeting” at Nagaland Police Complex in Dimapur. The sources further said that Th Muivah and RN Ravi discussed about the next “formal peace talk” which is likely to resume soon. The sources, however, did not inform the specific date of the next “formal peace-talk”.
Meanwhile, a separate source said that the next round of peace talk will be held soon in New Delhi and not in Nagaland.
This latest development came even as reports are doing the round in the past few weeks that the ‘Naga national flag’ and the ‘Naga constitution’ are the only two issues which are yet to be resolved.
The September 9 meeting between RN Ravi and Th Muivah draws much attention, as per the comments of RN Ravi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed the desire to settle the Indo-Naga political issue by October this year. If this is to be marked, there is only 50 days left for the lapse of the time frame.
The National Socialist Council of Nagaland Isak-Muivah faction (NSCN-IM) had just recently said that any solution to the ongoing Indo-Naga peace talks without Naga flag and constitution would be far from “honourable”. The statement comes at the time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi reportedly asked the Nagaland Governor, RN. Ravi, who is also the interlocutor of the peace talks to settle the issue within a three months time.
In Manipur too, the United Naga Council (UNC) yesterday submitted a representation to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for a just an honourable solution to the Indo-Naga political situation based on the Indo-Naga Framework Agreement signed on August 3, 2015 at New Delhi.
The representation was made with reference to the UNC Presidential Council meeting resolution of September 5 on the Indo-Naga political settlement. The meeting was attended by tribe leaders, student and civil bodies.
A copy of the representation stated that the Naga people appreciate the official recognition of the unique history and situation of the Nagas and the subsequent signing of the Indo-Naga Framework Agreement.
It also stated that for an honourable solution of the Indo-Naga political issue, the “Naga National Flag and the Naga Constitution” must be acknowledged and be accepted in the peace agreement while also endorsing integration of the Nagas purportedly divided by artificial boundaries.
