The lone Rajya Sabha MP from Nagaland, KG Kenye, on Thursday has appealed to the central government to take up Naga political peace process with all earnest and expedite the process of a negotiated and permanent solution.
Participating in the Motion of Thanks on the President’s address to both houses of Parliament on Wednesday, KG Kenye said that the President did not make mention on the peace talk.
The Rajya Sabha MP said that the last government had shown determination to solve the issue immediately back in 2014, but over the years the government has started to slow down, according to reports.
On the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB), Kenye appealed to the Centre to have further interaction with the states to be affected like Assam, Nagaland and other north-eastern states.
Referring to the President address of ‘regional imbalance’, MP said he thinks that the president also meant the balance of time in the proceedings of this House and requested Chairman of the house to allow more time.
On the limited time allotted to small states, Kenye lamented that in the last 55 years of the statehood, he and his predecessors put together might not have even taken one hour of the proceedings of this house and requested more time.
