Kohima: The ongoing Naga peace talks between the Centre and the Isak-Muivah faction of National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) has been put on hold as the group’s general secretary, Th Muivah, has returned to Nagaland from New Delhi.
As per sources, Muivah returned to the NSCN-IM’s designated camp at Hebron on Wednesday. His return is said to be mainly due to the COVID-19 situation in Delhi.
Sources told EastMojo that Muivah traveled to Dimapur by a chartered flight and later flew to Camp Hebron by a helicopter. Muivah is likely to stay back in the state till the situation improves in the national capital.
Muivah returned to the state with a few other senior leaders of the group including NSCN-IM vice chairman Tongmeth Wangnao.
Sources from the group also informed that in view of the surge in COVID-19 cases and the SOPs that are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, no meetings or talks will be held with the leader for some time.
As per reports, Muivah moved to Delhi last year for undergoing treatment.
