‘Dialogue is the only way to sort out political issues,’ said Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang. While addressing the gathering, he said, ‘As long as gun culture prevails in the State, Nagas will never progress and the only means to put an end to gun culture is to find an early solution to the Naga political problem’.
‘When Prime Minister Narendra Modi has committed to the early settlement of the Naga political issue, Nagas should grasp the opportunity and collectively work towards it without further creating any rift among the Nagas,’ he added. TR Zeliang also said that solution to the Naga political issue is not for a particular faction or tribe but for the benefit of the whole of Nagaland.
‘66 legislators of Nagaland Legislative Assembly, cutting across party lines have collectively come together to foster an early settlement of the Indo-Naga political issue,’ he informed. ‘But a solution is possible only when we work together and this consensus at the highest level must percolate down to the grass roots level,’ he asserted.
