NSCN-IM to date Modi
DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 12
Rubbishing media reports appeared few days ago, an NSCN-IM source said today the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the outfit leaders will take place soon.
Earlier, a news agency had reported that the much hyped meeting would not take place between the Prime Minister and the NSCN-IM leaders. The Naga outfit instead would hold talks with New Delhi’s interlocutor for Naga peace talks RN Ravi.
“We will be meeting the Prime Minister soon,” a well placed source from the NSCN-IM informed Eastern Mirror this evening.
The NSCN-IM team will first meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi then only the ‘formal dialogue’ will start, according to the source from the NSCN-IM.
It is worth recalling here that a 10-member team of the NSCN-IM had left Dimapur on September 20 for New Delhi on the invitation of the Government of India. NSCN-IM chairman Isak Chisi Swu and the outfit general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah led the team.
