Nagaland Gaon Bura Federation backs Indo- Naga Peace Accord interlocutor


KOHIMA | AUGUST 30, 2020:

The Nagaland Gaon Bura Federation (NGBF) expressed displeasure over the demand for the replacement of Governor RN Ravi as the Centre's interlocutor.

The traditional heads of the Naga society considered the demands as "unjust and untenable".

The hereditary custodians of the Naga indigenous observed that the demand may curtail other negotiations of which Ravi is the Centre's mediator over the Naga Peace Accord.

"The status paper is with tribal leaders and organisations. The transparency and practical aspect of the negotiations between GoI and WC, NNPGs, without compromising Naga history, identity and political right in all Naga areas, being communicated to the tribes and public at the grassroots level have found favour with the people," NGBF said.

"Just like the NSCN (IM), all the groups had different ideologies and policies and owed their origin to the very first undivided NNC. The only role the Naga civil societies, particularly the NTC, NGBF and churches, played was bringing sworn enemies to a common table where they could see eye to eye for the sake of Nagas. It was providence," the statement added.

"A group negotiating with GoI with R.N Ravi as the interlocutor and issuing statements saying '… any organisation falling in line with R.N. Ravi is anti-Naga…' sums up the inconsistencies in the last 23 years of political talks between GoI and NSCN (IM)," NGBF said in a reference to the position taken by NSCN (IM).
