The Naga Hoho has said that the “grand” signing of the ‘Framework Agreement” on August 3, 2015, and the acknowledgment by the Prime Minister of India has turned into a dark history.
In a statement issued to Newmai News Network (NNN) tonight, the Naga Hoho has questioned the sincerity and “habitual rhetoric” of the Government of India with regard to Indo-Naga political settlement.
The latest press statement released also said, “Apparently, the Naga peace accord which is believed to be at its final stage and likely to culminate anytime, seems to be never-ending political negotiations.”
It further added, “Very disgustingly, India has employed the colonial policy of further divides and fragmentation of the Naga people despite recognition of Naga political problem as unique situation and history.”
Naga Hoho said it was constrained to issue this public statement “against the backdrop of the Government of India under the BJP led government for failing to address the wishes of the Naga people for a lasting solution to the Indo-Naga political problem as committed ‘Election for solution’ during the run-up of 2018 state General Election in Nagaland.”
The Naga Hoho recalled that the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi had given 18 months to bring Indo-Naga political solution after the assumption of Prime Minister’s office in 2014. “And whereas, even after more than eight years of BJP Government, solution seems to elude the Naga people without finding any tangible settlement,” the Naga Hoho said.
It further said that the Government of India is well aware that more than 25 years have gone ever since the signing of Indo-Naga cease-fire with the objective for finding out Indo-Naga political settlement.
The Naga Hoho also said that the act of Government of India is disgraceful to the peace loving people in different parts of the world “as it continues to wield the draconian laws and easing the Naga people with false promises.”
The Naga Hoho added that the Nagas are yet to see the light of the day despite more than eight years of BJP rule.
