Reacting sharply to chief minister Neiphiu Rio’s alleged statement that appeared in local dailies on the issue of Naga integration and Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016, NPF MLA Imkong L Imchen has questioned Rio whether he was under pressure from BJP to make such announcements.
 
Addressing media persons at NPF’s central office here on Thursday evening, Imchen asked why the  chief minister made the remark that integration of contiguous areas inhabited by Nagas was not possible at such a crucial time when peace talks were on.
Imchen read out clause 8 of the 16-point Agreement that specifically mentions that “The Naga leaders expressed their view that other inhabiting contiguous areas should be enabled to join the new State. It was pointed out to them on behalf of the government of India that Article 3 and 4 of the constitution provided for increasing the area of any state, but it was possible for the government of India to make any commitment in this regard at this stage.”
