Manipur blockade may impact Naga peace talks: Ravi
Assam Tribune | R Dutta Choudhury | Guwahati, Feb. 11:
The Centre has taken serious note of the ongoing economic blockade of Manipur and warned that it may have serious impact on the ongoing Naga peace talks. The Centre’s displeasure over the issue has also been communicated to the leaders of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (I-M).
Talking to The Assam Tribune, the Centre’s interlocutor for Naga talks, RN Ravi admitted that the economic blockade of Manipur, a state going to polls soon, would have serious impact on the Naga political talks. He said the blockade has sharpened the divide between the Nagas and non-Nagas in the Northeast and it would make his task of finding an early amicable solution to the issues more difficult. Ravi pointed out that the Naga political issue cannot be solved in isolation. He said the neighbours of Nagaland are important stakeholders.
