A press note from the BPCC (A-N) informed that the theme of today’s meet was to deliberate on the ongoing news about the Government of India’s proposal of inking a final ‘Naga Peace accord’ and its reported confusions and fear psychosis in the minds of the people. Members from either side opined that there are “certain forces creating such confusions in the minds of the peace loving people otherwise they are leading a coordinated peaceful living.”
Pabon Gogoi, BPCC (A-N) executive member from Medeluajan expressed that the yearly friendly volleyball tournament played between Naga villages of Changpang sector of Wokha district of Nagaland and the bordering villages of Titabar Sub-division since 2003 was successfully conducted from December 18 and ended only yesterday.
Another member from Aosenden village, from Mokokchung district, Likok Ao elaborated the present media reporting specifically in Assam as “nothing but distorted without much truth.”
Renowned media personnel of Assam, including Mrinal Talukdar and Atanu Phukan were also invited to enlighten the members of the committee as to how the confusions on the issue could be handled for arresting the situations. They opined that Government of India is assuring that in inking the final Naga Peace accord, the territorial integrity of the North East States would not be compromised.
Under the circumstances, the BPCC (A-N) appealed to all concerned at different level from either sides to ensure that “border peace loving people are not misguided and people living in the border areas be given all sorts of assistance.”
