‘Act with sincerity on Naga talks’

Dimapur, February 26 (MExN): The Government of India should demonstrate its sincerity ‘into action’, an organization, ‘Naga International Support Center’ (NISC) said in a statement today. The NISC made a number of demands that it implied would be demonstration of India’s sincerity.
The NISC stated in an article today: “Government of India through Prime Minister if you want to be sincere in practice then put your words into action:  talk peace sans the idea of loosing face and release all political Naga prisoners, this includes Anthony Shimray; withdraw all troops; recognize the right to self determination of the Nagas, the right you have signed of the UNO covenant.”
The NISC said that the Prime Minister of India recently met with the Naga delegation in Delhi to “talk eye to eye on the progress of the peace talks between India and Nagaland.” The crucial points discussed were “sincerity, expediting the talks to reach an honorable solution” in the wake of the arrest and detaining of Anthony Shimray, “head of foreign affairs.” Since 1997, the NISC stated, when the ceasefire was signed as a prerequisite for peace talks, the Government of India and the Naga People together have...
...“weathered 14 years and a formidable number of rounds of talks.” The Prime Minister of India had said that the Government of India is sincere in pursuing an honorable solution for this age old conflict ‘which spans no less than six decades,’ the NISC note stated. “This of course is a laudable answer of the revered Prime Minister and sincerity indeed is the crucial ointment for the peace machinery to run smoothly and steadily.”
However “stimulating words is one thing, yet translating them into action is quite another,” the NISC explained. “So, although NISC does not question the will of the Government of India to be sincere to make the peace talks meaningful, NISC puts question marks on what the Government of India actually does. Fourteen years of talks have not led to anything tangible but to stalling for time; something which the Government of India hopes or even expects that Nagas will eventually subside and their determination will to resist to dominance fizzles out.”
The press release has questioned, “Is it so that the Government of India is unaware of the fact that it is waging war against the people of Nagaland?”
Querying if the “prime policy of the Government of India is to drive the Nagas into Chinese arms,” the NISC wondered of “India is playing its delaying tactics so divisions among the Nagas are widened and reconciliation cannot take place?”
