A joint team of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) and Congress Legislature Party (CLP) has met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and apprised him about the need to resolve the Naga political conflict within a definite time frame. A party delegation led by NPCC president S I Jamir and CLP leader Tokheho Yepthomi on Tuesday told the PM that 14-years of peace negotiation without a conclusion and 10-years of ceasefire agreement without opening talks did not make sense, an NPCC statement received here on Wednesday said.

The NPCC conveyed that there was a need for "transparency in the political dialogue so as to give opportunity to the stakeholders to react constructively."

Singh was "very receptive" to the suggestions and gave patient hearing to the party delegates, it said.

He told the visiting leaders that "this is a unique opportunity for Nagas to resolve the political problem and the UPA government is ready to go extra mile to resolve the issue."

He also assured the delegates of positive action at the earliest, the statement claimed.
