Centre�s assurance on Article 371(A) satisfies Nagaland Govt

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Aug 10 - The ruling People�s Democratic Alliance (PDA) today said that the Centre�s assurance on Article 371(A) has given the hope that the Naga peace talks and negotiations are going on in the right direction.

PDA chairman Chingwang Konyak and co-chairman Temjen Imna Along issued a statement on Saturday, appreciating Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for declaring on the floor of the Lok Sabha on August 6 that the special provisions enshrined in Article 371(A) of the Constitution would not be touched.

It also placed on record its appreciation for Nagaland Governor RN Ravi who had earlier reiterated that Article 371(A) was a solemn and sacred commitment to the people of Nagaland. Ravi had also said that the Government of India was earnestly working to happily conclude the ongoing political process, which is at a very advanced stage.

The ruling alliance said it would extend full cooperation to the peace talks so that the long-felt aspirations of the Naga people are realised and the protracted negotiations lead to an early, honourable and acceptable solution.

On Wednesday, BJP Legislature Party leader and Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton and Along, who is also the State BJP president and minister, lauded the bold step taken by the Centre to abrogate Article 370 and Article 35(A) of the Constitution relating to Jammu and Kashmir.

Patton and Along pointed out that the situation in Jammu and Kashmir is completely different from Nagaland. They assured the people of the State that �in case of any such situation�, the Nagaland BJP would stand in unison with the rest of the Nagas to realise the regional aspirations of the Naga people.
