The Prospect in Nagaland

The Prospect in Nagaland THE NAGA UNDERGROUND held a press ' conference at Kohima on March 30, following M C Chagla's statement on the previous day that the Government of India was willing to grant all travel facilities in- eluding an Indian passport to the emissary proposed to be sent to London to meet Phizo. Talking to newsmen, the underground spokesman Z Romyo said that, "the negotiations always suffered because of press, political parties and the people" Romyo carefully explained the Nagas' position with regard to the incidents which have been described as instances of cease-fire violations. He denied the Nagas' complicity in the series of explosions that occur- ed in trains and on rail tracks. The Nagas. he added, were prepared to participate in a joint inquiry into these and other charges of sabotage involving much loss of life. He said that the Government of Assam had turned down an offer of joint inquiry last May following certain incidents. He also blamed high officials in New Delhi for resorting to dilatory tactics to delay resumption of talks since last January. The initiative for the talks now rested with the Government of India, he emphasised.
