New Delhi, August 21
With the NSCN-IM insisting on a separate flag and structure and Centre’s negotiators saying the 2 are “non-negotiable”, the continuing Naga peace talks to settle political points seem to have reached a impasse.
Sources mentioned on the insistence of the NSCN-IM management that they’d not favor talks with the Centre’s interlocutor and Nagaland Governor, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) assigned the duty of participating them to prime Intelligence Bureau (IB) officers.
The IB officers held a number of rounds of talks with the NSCN-IM management led by Thuingaleng Muivah (86), however they continued insisting on a separate flag and structure and drifted from the “framework agreement” reached in 2015, the place they agreed to type out the problems inside the limits of the Indian Constitution, sources added.
It was as soon as once more defined to them that the 2 calls for are “untenable” and “non-negotiable”, as no different state or Union Territory below the Union of India has the 2 assigned to them of their very own, the sources mentioned. — TNS
