Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Nagaland Accord.
Taking to Twitter, Gandhi tweeted,''August 2015, Mr Modi claims to create history by signing the NAGA accord. Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found. Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don't mean anything. #CantFindTheAccord.''
Signing of the Framework Naga Accord in 2015 between the Centre and NSCN(IM) was seen as a solution to the vexed Naga question. But 3 years down the line there is no clarity on what the framework agreement was. Assam had recently seen violence after an RSS leader was quoted to say that some districts of Assam will be part of Greater Nagalim.
Meanwhile, several Naga groups under the banner of Core Committee of Nagaland Tribal Hoho and Civil Organisations (CCNTCHOC) and political parties have demanded postponement of the state polls to facilitate early resolution to the protracted Naga insurgency issue.
11 political parties, including ruling Naga People's Front, and the Bharatiya Janata Party, had issued a joint declaration not to give party tickets or file nominations for the Assembly polls after calls by various tribal groups for a "Solution before Election".
