KOHIMA, October 25: The interlocutor for Naga peace talks, R N Ravi lauded the Naga tribal grass-root organisations and civil societies for making it possible for the six Naga National Political Groups (NNGPs), who are now formally party to the peace process, to come together.
“This is a historic development because howsoever comprehensive the Naga issue, we cannot leave anyone out of the peace process. We must strive to the best of the ability to make it happen,” Ravi said.
Ravi is here in Nagaland to hold peace talks with the working committee of six NNPGs, which is being held for the first time in the state.
Besides the ongoing Naga political dialogue between the Govt of India and the NSCN-IM, the six NNPGs have also been invited to involve in the peace talks before a final settlement is achieved.
Ravi said the Centre cannot be indifferent to the stake holders representing the Naga society at the grass root level and the active cooperation shown by them so far will surely reach an “honourable and acceptable solution in the near future”.
Leaders of tribal organizations and civil societies have extended their support and cooperation and urged upon the Centre to expedite the peace process by bringing all Naga political groups on board to find an honourable solution to the long protracted Naga issue.
