DIMAPUR, May 11
NSCN-IM chairman Isak Chisi Swu and general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah will leave Dimapur for New Delhi on May 13 in connection with the ongoing peace talks. The formal talks are likely to resume next month.
According to well placed sources, Swu and Muivah will leave Dimapur on Tuesday while the ‘advance team’ of the NSCN-IM will leave Dimapur tomorrow, May 12.
The NSCN-IM leaders are in Nagaland since March 9. In these two months’ stay here, the two leaders had signed the Lenten Agreement with the FGN/NNC and NSCN-Khole/Kitovi group under the aegis of FNR.
Formation of the Naga National Government clearly featured in the Lenten Agreement.
The Naga National Government (NNG) is the ‘ Naga Concordant’ signed few years ago and in the March 28 meeting, these Naga underground groups agreed in principle to the formation of the NNG.
It is worthwhile to recall here that NSCN-IM leaders Isak Chisi Swu and Thuingaleng Muivah had left Nagaland for New Delhi on November 19 last year to resume the talks. But after the series of informal meetings between the representatives of the Government of India and the NSCN-IM, the Centre’s principal interlocutor RS Pandey’s joining the BJP was attributed as the reason for the creation of the not-so-appealing ambience. Both Swu and Muivah returned to Nagaland on March 9.
