Nagaland Governor P B Acharya on Monday expressed hope that solution to the vexed Naga political problem would be solved within the next one or two months and urged every Naga underground group and civil societies to come together to accept it.
Interacting with media persons at Raj Bhavan on Monday, the governor said, “Naga peace process is in news everywhere and I am confident with all information from my sources that it (peace process) has come to a conclusion.”
“General elections are due within few months in the state and I hope solution to Naga political problem will come within next one-two months,” Acharya said.
“At this juncture, all the Naga civil societies and political parties should be prepared to accept the solution and make it a reality,” he said.
“Younger people are tired and want solution to the decades old peace process,” he said.
Asked on his role to overcome the leadership crisis within the ruling Naga Peoples’ Front (NPF), the governor said it is the internal matter of the party.
“They should overcome the trust deficit, which is also hampering the peace process and therefore they should come together and strengthen the government,” he said.
On the allegation from some quarters that the governor had unconstitutionally removed then Chief Minister Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu on July 19, Acharya said whoever has the majority should head the government.
Meanwhile, the Governor urged the 60 Naga legislators and two MPs to adopt at least one village every year in their own constituency under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana and work for the uplift of that village.
He said that the Centre provides special fund to the legislators for the project.
Acharya also suggested that along side the World War-II cemetery in Kohima there should be a memorial of Subhash Chandra Bose and INA soldiers who died for India.
He said he has written to the Centre about this.
