Make peace accord public: Ibobi Singh

Imphal, November 13 (PTI) Senior Congress leader and former Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh has demanded that the Centre make public the peace accord it signed with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (IM).Singh demanded this while participating at a sit-in protest organised by the Congress at Thangmeiband area yesterday. He said any solution to end to the Naga insurgency should be confined to Nagaland state only and not Manipur. The Centre and NSCN (IM) had signed a peace accord on August 3, 2015. Singh cautioned the Centre that offering any sort of autonomy related with administration, culture and finance, as per the demands of a particular rebel group, will “lead to chaos and disintegration” of a sensitive state like Manipur. Singh said the Centre should not try to “appease” a particular community the state is inhabited by more than 30 different ethnic groups.
