Muivah meets PM

Dimapur, May 23: Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh met NSCN (I-M) General Secretary Thuingaleng Muivah in Delhi on Tuesday after denying him an audience for months, possibly with an eye on the renewed violence in the Northeast, a national daily reported on Friday.The meeting, the daily said, showed that Centre was keen on using the influence of NSCN (I-M) over various rebel outfits to buy peace in the region. The NSCN (I-M) is said to have been instrumental in getting at least some of the outfits in the region to the negotiating table. The low-profile meeting was also attended by national security adviser, M.K. Nara-yanan, sources said. “It was decided that the Naga talks would continue and both sides would try and find an honourable, mutually-acceptable peaceful solution,” a source told the daily. Muivah is understood to have been satisfied with the meeting. For more than a month, the NSCN (I-M) General Secretary had been camping in the national capital to meet the Prime Minister. The NSCN (I-M) has witnessed some of the worst factional clashes in Nagaland in the past few weeks, with the “home minister warning the state government that the Centre would be forced to intervene if it failed to check the violence,” the report added.The meeting between Muivah and Dr. Singh came close on the heels of simultaneous peace rallies conducted in all district headquarters of the State by the GBs and DBs Joint Forum, Nagaland.Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio had Thursday asked the district administrations to strictly implement the guidelines issued by the government in clearing civilian areas from underground activists. The government was also reported to have issued guidelines to all DCs and SPs to flush out the activists before June 10. (Courtesy: Nagaland Post)
