The United Naga Council (UNC), the apex body of Nagas in Manipur, is confident that a final solution to the protracted political dialogue going on between the Government of India and NSCN-IM can be achieved within the tenure of the incumbent NDA Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Talking to The Sangai Express exclusively, UNC president Gaidon Kamei remarked that the dialogue process has reached such a stage that there is no need for sending any further invitation for ‘over-consultation’. ‘Over-consultation’ at this stage would only create unnecessary problems, Gaidon asserted.
“It is the most opportune time for working out a final solution to the protracted dialogue process”
“It is the most opportune time for working out a final solution to the protracted dialogue process”, Gaidon said.
As indicated by the respective positions of the two parties, there is no question of the Government of India betraying the Nagas by keeping the much awaited final settlement in abeyance.
If the Government of India fails to clinch a final solution despite the prevailing highly conducive situation, a very ugly situation would unfold not only in Manipur but also in the entire North East, Gaidon said.
