Nagaland Governor RN Ravi talking at state reception (held in his honor) discussed the status of Article 371(A) on Friday. He said that the issues regarding Naga talks have been resolved between different stakeholders and Article 371(A) will not be repealed.

The Naga issue revolves around the demand for secession of Naga territories from India. The armed conflict led by the Naga National Council (NNC) reached its pinnacle in 1956.

RN Ravi was earlier the interlocutor for the Naga peace talks for which discussions were held between Centre and negotiators. He told that Prime Minister Narendra Modi told him to conclude the talks in three months.

He said it makes no sense to compare the different situations of Jammu & Kashmir and Nagaland, therefore he sharply delineated the history of Article 370 and Article 371(A).

Speaking at a gathering of local tribals, state officials and civic bodies, he pulled everyone’s attention towards the issues of Nagaland. He said that Nagaland despite being rich in natural resources, it lacks civic amenities. He also informed everyone about the potential of youth in the region, their talent, sate’s tourism potential.

Nagaland lacks in proper facilities of employment opportunities, motorable roads, 24×7 power supply, education avenues for students and access to health care. He also lauded Modi government’s efforts for resolving the issue. He highlighted the fact that the talks over the issue have been going on for over 22 years, but Modi sir made it possible to review the talks.

Article 371(A) of the Indian Constitution gives special provisions to Nagaland as a state in its administration. The special status has been accorded to the state to preserve its tribal culture. After the repeal of Article 370, the existence of Article 371 has widely debated.
