NSCN (IM) reacts to Rahul Gandhi’s statement on Naga Peace Accord

DIMAPUR: The NSCN (IM) today expressed shock at Congress National Vice President, Rahul Gandhi's statement in Parliament regarding the Framework Agreement signed last year between the NSCN (IM) and the Government of India.

A press note from the MIP of the NSCN (IM) stated that "the manner in which he expresses his position to the long pending political issue between India and Nagalim is but sadly deplorable."

Terming Gandhi's remarks as avoidable, the NSCN (IM) stated that the Framework Agreement is a "political document with a set of mutually agreed principles which will act as a guide book in finding the final solution between India and Naga people."

"His self created terminology like Naga Accord is nonexistent and misleading," it added. Asking Rahul Gandhi to leave aside electoral politics the NSCN (IM) further urged all leaders in India, irrespective of party affiliation to contribute positively and support the ongoing peace talk so that peace and prosperity will dawn to the Naga people.
