“We are in unison, we are one mind. Maybe, tomorrow we will pass a resolution unanimously and sent to the Government of India,” he stated.

The Chief Minister, said this while delivering his concluding remarks to the general discussion on the budget for the year 2024-2025 on the third day of the 4th Session of the 14th Nagaland Legislative Assembly.

On Naga Political issue, Rio asserted that there needs to be unity among all the 60 Legislators, so as to continue to facilitate the dialogue, and urged the negotiating parties to resolve the matter early.

He mentioned that the August House has in the past spared no efforts in trying to facilitate an early solution to the Naga Political issue, and the 14th House also will continue to make the same efforts.

Regarding the suggestion of making an urgent effort to take up the matter with the Government of India before the end of its present tenure, Rio said, “this is an issue that all the Hon’ble Members will have to consider and if needed, a separate meeting can be held to discuss the matter for further action.”
