Kohima: Extending its fullest support to on-going Naga re-conciliation process, Nagaland Pradesh Congress has urged the Centre to expedite peace talks for finding settlement to vexed Naga political problem.

The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) and District Congress Committees (DCC) at a joint meeting here yesterday observed that the entire Naga people had been longing for a permanent peace and resolved to extend fullest support to the endeavour of the Forum for Naga Re-conciliation.

The party also resolved to urge the Naga underground leaders to collectively work out 'consensual and reciprocal political and economic solution' to the decades-long political conflict.

On August 20 and 22, setting aside differences among themselves, top leaders of NSCN(I-M), GPRN/NSCN led by Khole Konyak and NNC/FGN agreed to broaden the on-going Naga peace process towards finding an acceptable and honoruable solution to the long-drawn political conflict based on 'uniqueness of Naga political history'.

However, NSCN(K) led by S S Khaplang was not part of this new political development.

The apex tribal council Naga Hoho, in a separate statement, called upon all other Naga groups to join the on- going re-conciliation process and urged the FNR to press for inclusion of all other groups into the fold.

The Hoho also took strong exception to the rampant extortion and corruption in the state and called upon all sections of the society to check criminal activities in their respective area which should be led by tribal hohos (council).
