    Separate statute, flag core to peace process, Naga outfit tells Prime Minister

    Council of

    Nagaland
    (Isak-Muivah), the first Naga outfit with which the government initiated peace talks, has written to Prime Minister

    Narendra Modi
    that there cannot be an “honourable solution” to the Naga peace process without a “separate flag and constitution”.


    The NSCN (I-M) said that the 22-year-old peace process received the official recognition to the unique history and situation of the Nagas when the Framework Agreement was signed on August 3, 2015. However, the outfit said, three years have passed since the Framework Agreement was signed but there has been no headway.



    “The government of India is going slow in taking a stand on core issues. This changing situation and other developments compels NSCN chairperson Q Tuccu and General Secretary Th Muivah to write a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the doubt and confusion raised by

    Naga people
    if an honourable political solution can be arrived at,” it said.


    “This is in reference to the core issues like Naga flag and constitution, which are yet to be agreed upon between the two parties. Without these two core issues solved, any solution would be far from honourable because Naga’s pride and identity is deeply entrenched here,” it added.
