NEW DELHI, Dec 20 - Describing reports as speculative, the Centre today said that adequate care is being taken to protect the interests of all stakeholders, including the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur.

Replying to a question by Meghalaya�s Congress Rajya Sabha MP Wansuk Syiem, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju said that apprehension of the three states losing their territories to Nagaland was speculative. �These are speculative in nature,� he said.

�The Framework Agreement signed on August 3, 2015 laid down the broad parameters for final settlement of the Naga problem. The final accord has not yet been signed. Six Naga armed groups are also in contact with the Government of India interlocutor. The government is aware of apprehensions expressed in Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur,� he said.

Meanwhile, in the Lok Sabha, Assam Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi moved a Rule-377 notice and urged the Centre to make public the Framework Agreement signed with the NSCN(I-M) considering the scale of its impact.

Currently, the NSCN(I-M) official map of �Greater Nagalim� shows a 1,20,000 sq km area across the Northeast. �The people of Assam shouldn�t be made to compromise on the loss of territory and authority over its legal boundaries,� he said.

Gogoi further urged the Prime Minister to clarify on the exact provisions of the Framework Agreement that will impact large areas of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur.

�There is a strong sense of apprehension among the people of these areas. Combined with the complete absence of clarity on this matter by the government, the situation is causing unprecedented confusion among the people and authorities,� he said.
