Kohima, Nov. 7: The Consultative Meeting of Joint Legislators’ Forum on Naga Political Issue is set to be held on 13th of November, 2019 at Rhododendron Hall, Chumukedima Police Complex.

This meeting is going to be crucial in the wake of Naga Political solution around the corner. As per the programme of the meeting issued by the Nagaland Legislative Assembly, the meeting will be addressed by 5 dignitaries:

  1. Y Patton, the Deputy Chief Minister
  2. TR Zeliang, Leader of Opposition
  3. KG Kenye, Member of Rajya Sabha
  4. Tokheho Yepthomi, Member of Lok Sabha
  5. Neiphiu Rio, Chief Minister.

And there will be open discussion on the proposed Naga political issue. This meeting is likely to be very tense as NPF (opposition) and PDA (Ruling Alliance) have been indulging in media war on facilitating NPGs and GoI lately. With their stiff stance of opposition to each other’s opinions and differences, there is high degree of all hell breaking loose in this consultative meeting.

In our earlier reports, we have mentioned the two times meetings of the NPF with the NSCN IM leaders in New Delhi in the span of one week. Contrary to that, the NDPP-lead PDA Government in Nagaland seemed to have not met the negotiating team (NSCN-IM and the NNPGs) even once. Moreover, in a piece reported by the The Hindu, Neiphiu Rio and Y Patton were reported eager to meet Prime Minister Modi as they feel apprehensive of their future roles post-inking of Naga political solution. This meeting could be a playground to score more goals for each party to make a way towards the post-solution chairs.

It may be mentioned that the opposition NPF had strongly accused the ruling NDPP-Led PDA government of deliberately not convening a Joint Legislative Forum meeting at the time when the tension of Oct. 31 deadline on Naga talk sky rocketed.

If the Joint Legislative Forum sticks to its objectives, then the meeting is going to be smooth and helpful in bringing safe landing to the 7 decades old Naga political issue.
