Guwahati: With Naga peace talks caught in a stalemate, Nagaland government has called for a consultative meeting with stakeholders on October 15 in Kohima.

The state government in a statement stated that it is calling for a consultative meeting of all the stakeholders to discuss the naga political issue and the on-going peace talks between the naga national political organisations and the government of India.

“All tribal Hohos, mass based organisations, civil societies, church organisations, political parties, NGCOs, prominent persons etc. are being invited to discuss the most important issue that our society is presently faced with. The state government is of the view that ceasefire and negotiations between the naga political organisations and government of India has been going on for more than two decades and the naga people have been crying out for peace and political solution. The state government feels that the political issue needs to be addressed with utmost urgency by all sections of the people in order to facilitate the early achievement of peace with all seriousness,” the government stated.


NSCN-IM said that talk on Naga flag and constitution is going on with the Government of India with all seriousness.

NSCN-IM is having informal talks with the government of India. The Centre has ruled out a separate flag and constitution earlier.

NSCN-IM general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah had written a letter to Prime minister, Narendra Modi in February seeking his intervention. In the letter he stated if their stay in India is unwelcome, necessary arrangements must be made for them so that they can leave India and political talks to be resumed in the third country.

On September 10 last, Interlocutor of peace talks and governor of Nagaland R.N Ravi and the working committee (WC) of the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) had held a meeting in Dimapur.

The NNPGs said in a statement, “The interlocutor has affirmed that GOI is taking forward the decision of the Naga groups taken on 31st October 2019. The GOI has acknowledged the fact that Naga tribes and civil societies have spelled out their position on the Indo-Naga political issue and in reciprocal manner, it is determined to fulfil the political aspiration of the Naga people. The defining hour is approaching for announcing an honourable and acceptable solution and therefore both GOI and WC felt that the unity of the Nagas at this time is critical.”
