Can’t find the Accord, says Rahul Gandhi to Modi about the Naga peace accord

Can’t find the Accord, says Rahul Gandhi to Modi about the Naga peace accord
Written by Abhishek Rana

Rahul Gandhi, the president of Congress today asked the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, “August 2015, Mr Modi claims to create history by signing the NAGA accord. Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found. Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don’t mean anything. #CantFindTheAccord” Rahul is referring to the August 3, 2015 when Narendra Modi had announced that he’d signed the NAGA accord, through which the government had come into agreement with the Naga insurgent group Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah), in order to resolve the conflict that has been going on for six decades. Modi had also stated that apart from resolving the conflict, the agreement was also the “beginning of a new future”.

The official statement about the resolution of the conflict had been, “It (The agreement) will restore peace and pave the way for prosperity in the North East. It will advance a life of dignity, opportunity and equity for the Naga people, based on their genius and consistent with the uniqueness of the Naga people and their culture and traditions.”

Rahul’s tweet seems to be in response with the annoucement made by the BJP party that it will be running the Nagaland state elections with the support of the newly made Nationalist Democratic Party.
