Elucidating the imbroglio of the present situation
The Five Naga Political Groups were compelled to meet by the activity of the PWC which can be considered as a blessing in disguise . It is good that their joint statement opens window for discussion to bring about understanding and solution.
Political Settlement is in the hand of the Naga National Workers and the support for bringing about an early settlement is the concern of all of the people including the Legislators . Once the whole team of the 60 MLAs led by the then CM N. Rio to Delhi in connection with the ongoing political talk was lauded by the Naga people . The present Legislators team led by the present CM T.R. Zeliang and the Speaker Sazo for the support of different Parties to expedite solution is also to be appreciated.Are the Nagas fighting for several Sovereign entities? If all National Workers are meant for Naga Sovereignty , all have to come to one . Are the National Workers alone to be blamed for their division ? Whether the National Workers or the general public , the people in general are not seekers of truth and justice . So now we have so many groups and if political solution is delayed , more and more groups will come up in the name of sovereignty and in the name of sovereignty , the people will be more and more enslaved economically and Nagaland will be a land of endless troubles.
The delay in reaching a settlement will not be good for both sides and as the present interlocutor Ravi who has been dealing with the situation sagaciously has been asserting the need of inclusiveness of all sections of the Nagas, why not he himself arbitrarily invites other Political Groups to the table of the talk to join hand with the NSCN (I – M) ? If not , clarify the reason why the Government of India is having political dialogue with the NSCN (I – M) alone despite there were three political groups in the inception of the talk . Truth alone is the solution.
