An official source said all of Manipur's political parties on Tuesday decided to protect the state's territorial integrity while addressing the Naga peace talks and their effect on Manipur. The meeting, chaired by Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh, was convened four days after the Naga talks interlocutor and Nagaland Governor R N Ravi stated that the Center is determined to conclude the peace process for decades without delay. Manipur is a Nagaland neighbor with a large number of Naga people.
“The meeting held here today at chief minister’s secretariat decided to protect the territorial integrity of Manipur,” the source said. The meeting, attended by the representatives of 25 political parties, also decided to send a delegation to urge the central government that the Naga peace talks should not disturb the integrity of Manipur.
On October 18, Nagaland Governor Ravi said that a mutually agreed draft comprehensive resolution, including all the substantive issues and skills, is ready to ink the final agreement.
On August 3, 2015, the Government of India and Nagaland's National Socialist Council Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM) signed a framework agreement. On Sunday, a meeting of all BJP-led coalition government legislators in Manipur was held to discuss the possible outcome and impact of Naga peace talk on Manipur. The meeting also agreed that in no way should any response to Naga talk affect Manipur's dignity.
