KOHIMA, Dec 9 - In a twist to the ongoing bickering within ruling Naga People�s Front (NPF), Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang and NPF president Shurhozelie Liezietsu on Friday reportedly signed a document to reconcile and re-unite.

The internal crisis in the party began in July after 36 NPF MLAs joined Zeliang�s camp to oust then Chief Minister Liezietsu, and after a division in the NPF resulted in a parallel party with former CM Neiphiu Rio as its president.

Sources within both the NPF camps said that a reconciliatory process was on and Zeliang and Liezietsu have inked a document accepting to reconcile and re-unite.

A final outcome of the reconciliatory process could be expected in a couple of days, the sources said, without wanting to be quoted.

However, Minister for Health and Family Welfare Imkong L Imchen, who is in Zeliang camp, said the process was initiated as a solution to the vexed Naga political issue which is expected to reach the final stage shortly. �Solution of the Naga political issue is the prime concern. And as legislators we thought it is best to work together for a final settlement without difference to achieve the common aspiration of the Naga people,� he said.

The sources said that after the reconciliatory process is completed the NPF faction headed by Rio would die �a natural death�. They, however, said Rio, accepting the reconciliation, has decided to resign from the president�s post. � PTI
