Accusing Centre of betrayal, the Naga communities on Saturday have threatened to boycott the forthcoming general election ‘if their demands are not taken seriously’.
Thousands of Nagas took to the streets in New Delhi demanding an early solution of Indo-Naga imbroglio.
“Before the last general election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had assured us that his government will resolve their problem if the BJP comes to power…now the next election is knocking at the door, where are the promises!” said Soso, a Naga leader.
In support of their demands, the Nagas from across the globe on Saturday culminated in the national capital and organized a massive rally from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar.
Significantly, Indo-Naga peace interlocutor R N Ravi is going for a three days long official visit to Nagaland from February 26.
According to the sources, Ravi would try to convince the Naga leadership with the progress of the peace talks.
“We want to ask Ram Madhab and R N Ravi where are the solutions,” said another Naga leader present in the rally.
Ever since the BJP government came to the power, several rounds of talk took place ‘but nothing came out from such talks’.
Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju, however, on several occasions said that the peace talks have reached its final stage.
