NEW DELHI, Oct 30 - The Centre and the NSCN(I-M) resumed negotiations on Wednesday which were continuing till the time of filing of this report. The negotiations today were spread over two sessions. A sense of urgency has gripped the peace process as the Centre has refused to extend the October 31 deadline.
The talks were chaired by Nagaland Governor RN Ravi, who is also Centre�s interlocutor, while the NSCN(I-M) delegation was led by the outfit�s general secretary Th Muivah.
The talks have been stalled over the demand for a separate Naga flag and constitution, which the Central government has struck down.
Meanwhile, the Centre and the Naga National Political Groups (NNPG) are much closer to clinching an agreement as the two sides have reportedly managed to iron out their differences, sources said.
