DIMAPUR, July 15 - Nagaland GaonBurahs Federation has called for early resolution to the decades-old Naga political issue through necessary constitutional amendments without diluting any special provisions currently made available to Nagaland. At the same time, the GBs (gaon burhas) wanted that the integrity and identity of the Nagas must be maintained by paving a way to live with honour and dignity.
Deliberating on �The perspective on Indo-Naga solution and the status/position of the Nagas� at a meeting here, the Federation also sought integration of Naga areas through an effective constitutional mechanism while calling for working out a timeframe to resolve all boundary disputes.
The GBs issued a release on Friday after the meeting lauding the Centre for taking the Naga peace talks seriously. According to them, the ongoing negotiations with Naga political groups were fully in line with the political aspirations of the Nagas and should be continued.
Appealing the Naga political groups and Centre to expedite the negotiations to arrive at a logical conclusion as soon as possible, the Federation sought devolution of complete legislative power to Nagaland under the final peace settlement.
