Kohima, 18 January, (

Nagaland Governor, RN Ravi expressed the importance of various organizations to come together for an early settlement of the longstanding Naga political issue. This was stated in his maiden address to the 5th Session of the 13th Nagaland Legislative Assembly on Friday.

Governor said political negotiations which were going on for the past many years between the Government of India and the Naga Political Groups (NPGs) had been successfully concluded. “It is, therefore, imperative that all the various organizations unite for an early settlement,” he said. He, however, warned that “If we fail this time, then we will be missing a golden opportunity.”

Stating that the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) Government in Nagaland had always considered the early settlement of the Naga political issue as its most important agenda, Governor expressed his happiness that they could be now very close to it. They appreciated Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and Home Minister, Amit Shah for their “unwavering commitment, determination and constant guidance” that ensured the progress of talks in the most purposeful and determined manner leading to its successful conclusion on a positive note, he added.

Ravi, who is also the Interlocutor for the Naga talks, conveyed the State Government’s deepest appreciation to all stakeholders for exhibiting their “utmost sincerity, foresightedness and a spirit of understanding” in helping create a conducive atmosphere for the conclusion of the talks in a positive manner.

He also made a sincere appeal to all State Governments and the people of the neighboring States to “show the highest level of understanding and extend all possible cooperation so that the peace process which has now reached a very critical juncture concludes in a successful manner in the interest of enduring peace and stability in the entire region.”
