Rahul Gandhi questions Prime Minister Modi over ‘missing’ Naga peace accord
With Nagaland state election in February, the Congress President Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to take potshots at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 2015 claim on Naga peace accord.
Congress leader posted in his Twitter account,“August 2015, Mr Modi claims to create history by signing the NAGA accord. Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found. Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don’t mean anything. #CantFindTheAccord”.
It need be recalled that it was on August 3, 2015 that Prime Minister Modi had announced that the government has entered into an agreement with Naga insurgent group Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah).
The agreement was aimed at resolving a conflict that has been festering for six decades.
The 2015 announcement related to the Naga Accord was made at an event at 7 Race Course Road where Home Minister Rajnath Singh, other government officials and NSCN(I-M) chief Thuingaleng Muivah were present.>
