Dimapur, Aug. 18 (EMN): The Naga Hoho has appreciated the wisdom and understanding of the former Prime Minister of India, HD Deve Gowda, for his recent appeal asking all parties involved in the Indo-Naga peace talks to put aside distrust and reach a settlement at the earliest.

 “It was in fact, the magnanimity of HD Deve Gowda in reaching out to the Naga leaders in Zurich in February 1997, which changed the course of the Naga struggle from war to path of peace,” an update from Naga Hoho stated.

 “For decades Naga people have been fighting for a rightful place and in the process many precious lives have been sacrificed. The first prime minister of India and his successors over the years of the Naga struggle have failed to really understand and find a conclusion to the decades old Naga issue,” the statement read.

The Hoho stated that his recent statement and perseverance towards solving Indo-Naga political problem has assured once again that “our problem is political and not law and order” which has given hope to the Nagas and a reason to believe that those years of struggle will not end in vain.

The Naga Hoho further affirmed the commitment of the former prime minister to ensure that peace accord is reached at the earliest.
