Nagaland: Opposition parties urge Centre to revoke 'disturbed area' extension
Kohima: Two days after Nagaland was declared as "disturbed area" for another six more months by the Government of India (GOI), the opposition party—Naga People’s Front (NPF) urged the centre to revoke its decision.
The NPF expressed shock that the Centre took this decision during a “crucial period” of the negotiations and talks to the vexed “Naga Political problem”. The NPF reminded the Central Government that extension of the Disturbed Area Act for six months “only shows the insincerity on the part of the Central Government”, and urged the Central Government to reconsider its stand and revoke the Act.
Further, it urged the Centre to exhibit its sincerity and expedite the peace talks.
