UPA ready to go extra mile on Naga issue: NPCC

Kohima: A joint team of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) and Congress Legislature Party (CLP) met prime minister Manmohan Singh and apprised him about the need to resolve the vexed Naga political conflict within a definite time frame.

The party delegation led by NPCC president S I Jamir and CLP leader Tokheho Yepthomi yesterday told the prime minister that 14-years of peace negotiation without conclusion and 10-years of ceasefire agreement without opening talks did not make sense, an NPCC statement received here today said.

The Pradesh Congress conveyed that there was a need for "transparency in the political dialogue so as to give opportunity to he stakeholders to react constructively."

The statement said that the prime minister was "very receptive" to the suggestions and gave patient hearing to the party delegates.

Singh told the NPCC leaders that "this is a unique opportunity for Nagas to resolve the political problem and the UPA government is ready to go extra mile to resolve the issue."

He assured the delegates of positive actions at the earliest, the statement said.
