SENAPATI,9th Sep: White flags were hoisted in Naga houses at different parts of the state in response to the Naga Women Union (NWU) campaign for expediting the Indo-Naga peace process. Speaking to Newmai News Network Sunday evening, NWU president Asha informed that the white flag hoisting campaign started from September 8 and the response from Naga people is immense and encouraging. Asha also said that NWU did not set timeline as to when the campaign will end.
“We are very much concerned that the Indo-Naga peace process has taken too long," she said. "It is time for an honourable Naga political solution,” added the NWU president. She also said that Nagas have been suffering for long because of non-resolution of their political issue. She urged the Centre to exhibit courage and will power to resolve the issue at the earliest while hoping that Centre will listen to the cries of Naga people for justice this time. Asha then appealed to all Nagas not to lose heart or get discouraged but to continue praying for early settlement of Naga political issue.
Earlier, NWU had stated that it was their prayer and appeal to every Naga family to hoist white flags in their houses from September 8 onwards to “proclaim to the world our yearning for lasting peace, and also, as a sign of our resistance to the violent protest against our rights as people”. NWU also said that it was also to reach out within and without with the message of peaceful co-existence for a shared future and early solution to Indo-Naga peace process.
