Pusa says any PAC should have broad consensus of all parties

Oken Jeet Sandham for Asian Tribune

Kohima, 04 December, ( NPCC president KV Pusa said any Political Affairs Committee working for the unity or reconciliation or any matter relating to the Naga issue should have broad consensus of all political parties. Because Naga issue does not belong to any party but belongs to the Naga people, he told the NEPS here at his Office Chamber, Congress Bhavan today.

The NPCC president said the current PAC of ruling DAN government could not represent all the Naga people. Because it is restricted to certain political parties, he said. "If we are going to have such Political Affairs Committee to work for the oneness and unity among the various sections of the Naga society, it should have broad consensus of all political parties," he pointed out.

Asked whether the ruling DAN approached him to discuss anything about their PAC, Pusas said, since he took over the reign of the PCC, no such approach was there from DAN’s PAC or CM or for that matter any concerned society. "If such arrangement is laid down before as, the Congress will definitely study the proposal," he said. "But so far nothing is coming from them."

Since the Naga issue belongs to the Naga people, the NPCC chief said they as Congress party will continue to work for peace and prosperity in the state and to see that the political solution acceptable to all sections of the Naga people is found at the earliest.

"Our endeavor is everybody lives in a peaceful atmosphere so that they can take up any activities such as economic activity, academic activity, etc.," he asserted. But the government of the day should ensure that money meant for the Naga people was percolated down to them, he stated.

Dismissing the charges that the Government of India had stopped fund flowing in the state, Pusa said he was rather sad to say that such fund coming from the Center was mismanaged. It should not be siphoned off in half way, he alleged.

He also stated the DAN government should chart out policies and programs for carrying out developmental works instead of piecemeal work.
