Naga Hoho urges Centre to expedite peace talks
Kohima, May 18 (UNI) The Naga Hoho, the apex tribal body, has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to expedite peace talks.
In a memorandum sent to the Prime Minister recently, copy of which was given to the media today, Naga Hoho acting President Keviletuo Kiewhuo and Publicity Secretary P Chuba Ozukum said the Nagas were wary of 'delayed tactics' and 'non-committal attitude' of the Union government.
Kiewhuo pointed out that various Naga political parties and NGOs had expressed their desire for sustainable peace in various platforms.
The Hoho, in the release, said that the Naga political negotiators have already submitted proposal for bilateral coexistence to the Prime Minister to end violence.
It regretted that solution remained elusive even though the Union government had recognized the Naga problem.
Periodic extension of Indo-Naga cease fire without any conclusive political action would not produce any tangible security, it added.
