IMPHAL/NEW DELHI, Dec 28 - Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that people of the northeastern states should not believe in �tendentious rumours� but depend on the government statement and assured that �no one-sided decision� would be taken on the Naga issue.

The Prime Minister said this while talking to an eight-member team of three civil organisations of Manipur that called on him this morning on the issue of the Framework Agreement the Centre had signed with the rebel group NSCN(I-M) on August 3, 2015.

�As the Prime Minister I assure you that people will be consulted and no one-sided decision shall be taken on the burning issue,� Modi is reported to have assured the delegates.

All sections of people, including the Manipur Assembly, have been clamouring for the disclosure of the details of the agreement. During the winter session, the assembly took one unanimous resolution to demand disclosure of the details of the pact.

Leaders of United Committee Manipur, All Manipur United Clubs Organisation and Committee on Civil Society Kangleipak have been camping in Delhi since December 16 to urge the national leaders not to take a �one-sided decision� on the issue.

The team members said that all sections support the efforts to bring about a durable peace but the interest and territory of Manipur should not be compromised.

The NSCN(I-M) demand is that all the �Naga inhabited� areas in Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Praddesh should be brought under one administrative roof of Nagaland.

Modi told the delegates that people should focus on development, peace and welfare. The delegates had earlier met Home Minister Rajnath Singh, BJP national president Amit Shah and several other leaders in Delhi. � IANS
