New Delhi:

The CPI(M) on Wednesday questioned the Narendra Modi government for not making full text of Naga Peace Accord signed two years ago public.

CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury referred to NSCN(IM) leader Thuingaleng Muivah’s reported comment that the group’s framework agreement signed with the Centre promises integration of all Naga territories and wondered why Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not release the full text of the accord to “bring out the truth”.

“Muivah claims that the framework agreement that Modi signed with him promises ‘integration of all Naga territories’. But we can’t verify it.

“Why have the terms of the accord not been released for two years? Why doesn’t PM release the full text to bring out the truth?” Yechury asked on Twitter.

Muivah had reportedly said earlier this week that ‘Greater Nagalim’ will have Naga-inhabited areas in Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh as part of the larger Nagaland state as per agreement signed on August 3, 2015.

The central government though refuted as “erroneous” the reports that it has agreed to carve out a larger Nagaland state.

“Such reports are erroneous. It is clarified that there is no such agreement or decision by the Government of India,” a Home Ministry spokesperson said yesterday.
