Accusing the Centre of insincerity, several Naga bodies boycotted consultative meetings with interlocutor RN Ravi to take forward long-standing peace talks. Three prominent Naga groups, Naga Hoho, Naga Students Federation and Naga Mother’s Association stayed away from meetings with Ravi in Nagaland capital Kohima on Tuesday.

In a statement, the Naga Hogo said they were boycotting the meet “to show resentment towards the Government of India for its insincerity and lack of political will towards solving the Indo-Nagaland political problem”.

The NDA government had signed a framework agreement with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) in 2015, with the aim of finding a final solution to the Naga issue that has been simmering inconclusively for nearly two decades.
