To discuss the unresolved Naga political conflict, all members of the Nagaland Assembly will meet on September 8.

In a notification, Assembly secretary A E Lotha urged all legislators to attend the meeting considering the magnitude of the issue.

The meeting assumes significance in view of the Union Home Ministry's latest assertion that there must a unified voice among the Nagas, particularly among various underground groups, for finding a lasting settlement to the protracted political conflict.

During the last assembly session there was a consensus among the members cutting across party lines that as elected representatives they should also play a constructive role into the ongoing peace process so that an early settlement could be found to the vexed Naga problem.

Both ruling Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) and the opposition Congress in the state have maintained that more than a decade of ceasefire and negotiations is sufficient time for the peace process to reach a logical conclusion.

They also believe that it has become imperative for the negotiating parties to expedite the talks in order to fulfill the desires and aspirations of the Naga people.
