Naga groups ask PWC to clarify on agreement

By Correspondent

DIMAPUR, Feb 27 - Accusing the Parliamentary Working Committee (PWC) of the Nagaland Assembly of blindly propagating the August 3, 2015 Framework Agreement signed between NSCN-IM and Government of India, five Naga political groups have asked the former to clarify whether the terms of the agreement were available to them and who endorsed them (PWC) to take the name of stakeholders when no consultations were initiated at any level.

They also asked the PWC to clearly define how the agreement was going to benefit the people of Nagaland and how the agreement with NSCN-IM was going to bring the final solution to the Indo-Naga political problem without the knowledge of the people.

The five Naga political groups � GPRN/NSCN (Khole/Kitovi), NNC/FGN (S Singya/Zhopra Vero), NNC (Z Royim/V Nagi), NNC (Kiumukam/Hangping) and NNC (Temjen Yanger/Hozheto) � in a joint statement, issued following a joint meeting of the five groups here recently, stated that to blindly propagate the Framework Agreement was �an intrusion to the Naga national question unequipped and ill- prepared.

Affirming exclusion of �Nagaland and its people while creating Nagalim�, the signatories questioned the wisdom of PWC led by Nagaland Chief Minister and the Speaker. The signatories underlined that the Naga people would never accept any solution without their consent and they were prepared to continue their struggle to uphold the aspiration of the people.
