DIMAPUR, March 24 - Nagaland Chief Minister Dr Shurhozelie Leizietsu said the State Government has been playing the role of facilitator to find a solution to the Indo-Naga issue but it alone will not be sufficient. �Now, the government has to be more aggressive,� Shurhozelie asserted in his reply to the debate on the motion of thanks to the Governor�s address, in State Assembly today.

He also said the Nagaland Government has been informing the Centre that solution to the Naga political problem has become more urgent than ever.

Shurhozelie acknowledged the bold decision taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to solve the Naga political problem. �Therefore, it is time for us all to work hard and be more aggressive to solve the Naga political problem,� he stated. The Chief Minister appealed to the 60 legislators who carry the mandate of the people to come together and have the same opinion to bring the people together and solve the Naga problem.
