Manipur PCC president Govindas Konthoujam.

The Congress has accused the BJP-led Manipur government of misleading the people with false promises over Naga Peace Accord.

Manipur PCC president Govindas Konthoujam while speaking to reporters in Imphal on Monday claimed that only the Congress party can help bring a final solution to the Naga Peace Accord.

Govindas said that the BJP-led government had given many assurances to the people but to date, none of them have materialized.

The MPCC president further said that people of hills and valley districts expected that the present government will resolve the decade-old Naga Peace Accord by August 15, 2015.

But on the contrary, the steps taken up by the government in this regard have become an act of playing to the sentiments of Naga people, he said.

The Congress party can firmly state that except Congress no party can resolve the Naga issue, Govindas said.

He pointed out that it was during the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi that the Mizo Accord and the Assam Accord were signed on June 30, 1986, and August 15, 1985, respectively.

Mentioning the creation of seven new districts of Manipur in 2016,

The Manipur Congress chief alleged that said that the N Biren Singh government took support from the United Naga Council (UNC) to roll back the formation of seven new districts of the state.

But ultimately, the government failed in its attempt.

Govindas further said that the same thing happened in the case of ‘Go to Hills’ and ‘Go to Village’ mission.

“The mission was launched with an objective to promote inclusive and equitable development. However, many interior parts of the state are still lagging behind. The local media had also extensively reported that the mission launched by the BJP-led state government has failed,” he said.
