Rajnath Singh reportedly assured the delegation that “very soon special meeting will be convened to discuss for early solution of the Naga problem”. The JD (U) Nagaland President Senchumo NSN Lotha was accompanied by KC Tyagi, Secretary General of JD (U) and Afaque Ahmed Khan, Secretary JD (U).
The letter to the Prime Minister is dated August 3, 2018 signifying the three years anniversary of the Framework Agreement signed between the Government of India with the NSCN (IM) in the year 2015.
While mentioning about the Framework Agreement and also the ‘Preamble’ signed on 17th November, 2017 with the NNPGs, the letter to the PM lamented that no tangible result has come out despite the declaration by the Prime Minister to resolve the Naga issue within 18 months.
The letter has appealed “to convene special session of Parliament for the urgent, honorable, acceptable and inclusive solution to the Naga issue without further delay”.
Earlier, the Nagaland unit of the Janata Dal (U) had carried out a ‘dharna’ on July 9 at the Parliament Street in New Delhi to press Delhi to expedite talks for early settlement of the decades-old Indo-Naga political issue which has been hanging fire for years together.
