As controversies and questions continue to be raised over the Naga Peace Accord, AICC president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday raised suspicions and doubts over the signing of the accord.
“No one knows and understands what the contents of the Naga Peace Accord are or whether the documents have been signed or not?” Gandhi questioned.
It may be mentioned that Nagaland is reeling under political tensions with the resolution of the 11 political parties of Nagaland including the ruling Naga People’s Front (NPF) to refrain from taking part in the poll process in response to the call by various tribal groups for “Solution before Election”.
During an informal interaction with the media here in Shillong during his two-day visit to Meghalaya, the AICC chief said that no one really knew about the contents and clauses of the Accord and not even the Home Ministry was aware of the clauses.
Furthermore, he said that even the chief ministers of Assam and Manipur (which will likely be affected if the government decides to accept the demands of NSCN (IM) for a greater Nagalim) had no idea about this signed agreement.
It may reminded that recently, an RSS member Jagdamba Mall’s statement with The Wire in connection with the Accord, has already claimed two lives in Hima Hasao district of Assam besides causing injuries and creating confusion over the territorial integrity in many states of Northeast India.
Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his ‘hush-hush’ mannerisms, Gandhi said that Modi is using the same idea of demonetization and GST which were implemented at midnight without consulting anybody.
“The PM works on the system of ‘I don’t need to ask anybody’. Modi suffers from credibility problem,” Gandhi said adding that people of Nagaland are losing faith in the Prime Minister.
