Dimapur, July 20 (EMN): The Nagaland Gaon Bura (village chief) Federation (NGBF) has appreciated the four point resolution adopted by the Parliamentary Committee on the Naga Political Issue on July 16 stating it has come at a right time for the people of Nagaland.

“The resolutions, on behalf of all sixty elected members, representing entire people of Nagaland, is essentially an unmistakable appeal to the GoI to sign the agreement with Naga negotiating groups which formally concluded political talks on October 31, 2019,” a joint statement release issued by the federation’s president, Sahlem Konyak; general secretary, Shikuto Zalipu; and the media secretary, Akhu Naga, stated.

As the elected representatives of Nagaland have officially promised to facilitate and pave the way in the event of a political solution, NGBF believed that it was an appropriate moment for the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, to fulfill his assurance to the Naga people.

As the political leadership of India is now a torchbearer of the democratic world, it expressed hope that the solution to Indo-Naga political problem would add to the statesmanship and stature of India. It, therefore, urged the GoI to ink an acceptable and honorable Indo-Naga political agreement without further delay.
