Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Thursday said there is lack of unity among political parties over the vexed Naga issue.
"All of us have been insisting that there should be re-conciliation and unity among Naga underground groups, but at the same time, politicians irrespective of party affiliations should have been united first on the Naga political issue," Rio told reporters in Kohima.
"Unfortunately, it (understanding among parties) has not happened so far despite efforts of DAN government to bring all over ground politicians to a common platform on the vexed political problem since it came to power," he said.
The Democratic Alliance of Nagaland government led by Rio completed two years in office in its second term.
Earlier, addressing a gathering Rio expressed satisfaction over the peace talks between the Centre and NSCN(I-M) and assured that his government would pave the way for a new dispensation if it comes by way of a political settlement of the vexed Naga political conflict.
