The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has urged all the 60 legislators of the Nagaland Assembly to resign and pave way for urgent implementation of Naga political solution.
“Their resignation will only demonstrate their sincerity towards implementation of political solution,” the NPCC said in a release on Sunday.
Quoting Centre’s interlocutor for Naga talks RN Ravi, who is also the Nagaland Governor, the Pradesh Congress said there is nothing more to talk.
The Political Affairs Committee of the Nagaland Congress decided to make the appeal while deliberating on the recent formation of Parliamentary Committee and Core Committee on Naga political issue by members of the Assembly at a meeting at Congress Bhavan in Kohima on July 16.
The meeting held primarily to discuss the current political situation in the State and emerging disturbances along Assam-Nagaland border adopted a three-point resolution.
The meeting cautioned the Assam government against passing of the Assam Cattle Preservation Bill, 2021 “that is bound to create more trouble for neighbouring hill states and destroy the age-old ties that have withstood the test of time”.
It said the “recent border provocation” from the Assam side by deploying armed police personnel well ahead of neutral Central armed police forces (CAPFs) is of serious concern.
The NPPC was of the view that both Assam and Nagaland government have taken the wrong path in resolving the long-standing boundary disputes.
“Since the matter is still pending in the Supreme Court, Assam government must stop its provocation and withdraw its armed police personnel from newly occupied positions,” it said.
The NPCC demanded that the CAPFs deployed along the disputed border areas must be placed under direct control and supervision of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
