“Time has come to know the status of the talks:” Dr Lotha

Kohima, 21 July, (Asiantribune.com):

NCP leader, Dr TM Lotha, MLA expressed serious concern on the present peace process between the Government of India and the Naga underground people as no tangible solution was still in sight.

Taking part in the general discussion on the budget on July 19 in the Assembly, the former DAN Minister informed the House that he had not seen any “tangible solution” even after 16 years of peace process between the Government of India and the Naga underground people.

Dr Lotha came out with his strong opinion that time had come for them to know the status of talks between the Government of India and the Naga underground people. “We cannot leave entirely to the negotiating parties,” he said.

“I think we have right to know what is the stage of the talks between the Government of India and the Naga underground people.”

“Once the agreement is inked between the negotiating parties, we will have little scope to say on it,” he pointed out and further drew the attention of the House that they should know the stages of the process.

Cautioning that “if a leader makes a mistake, it is going to a blunder,” Dr Lotha said a time had come for them to know the status of the talks between the negotiating parties.

He suggested that if they were not kept informed of the progress of the talks, then at least the Leader of the House should be kept informed of the status of the talks between the Center and the Naga underground people.

For which, he opined that they could work out a mechanism whereby the Leader of the House could be kept informed of the progress of the talks.
