Union Home Minister Amit Shah meets CM Rio-led delegation on Naga political issue

In a big political development, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday met a delegation of the Nagaland government led by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio and Deputy Chief Minister Y Patton and held a discussion over Naga political issue (NPI) during a meeting in New Delhi.

Amid media reports of the Centre “accepting” the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN-IM)’s demand for a separate flag and Yehzabo’ (constitution), the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) clarified that negotiations are underway and any such “possible solutions” would be speculative.

The union home ministry in a series of tweets said talks over the Naga issues have been in progress for several years.
“It has always been the endeavour of the Government of India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi to have a peaceful and prosperous North East,” a statement said.
Noting “many complicated issues that are involved in the Naga talks”, the MHA said the government is determined to arrive at a satisfactory conclusion to the negotiations. “Since negotiations are still ongoing, any report on possible solutions to various issues during the negotiations would only be speculative,” it added.
