The letter mentioned that through a missive to the Nagaland Government, the MHA has questioned the presence of the outfit in Dimapur. ''We are in Nagaland to meet our own people vis-a vis peace process…''. It further said that if their presence and stay in the country is not welcomed, then the Centre must make all necessary arrangements for them to leave India and that the political talks should be resumed in a third country.
Muivah also accused the role of interlocutor R.N Ravi of ''polarising the Naga society instead of uniting Nagas''. It the letter, Muivah stated that Ravi's appointment as the Governor in 2019 was a ''deliberate deviation from his appointment as the representative of the government of India for the peace talks''.
In the eight-page ''confidential'' letter, the group had also pushed for its contentious demands of having a separate Naga flag and constitution. The outfit claims that it has not received any response from the PMO and there had been efforts to downgrade the talks from the highest level of political dialogue.
" We had come to India on the invitation of the Government of India. We are totally shocked and surprised that even after more than two decades of political negotiation, the MHA and its agencies have become obnoxious," wrote Thuingaleng Muivah in the letter.
NSCN(IM) claimed that, in 1997, the outfit had agreed to talk peace only after New Delhi has recognized the Naga issue as political and refrained from calling it as India's 'internal law-and-order-issue'.
In 2015, the Modi Government and the group have signed the framework agreement that was expected to have set for a final solution to the long-standing 'Naga Peace Talks'. However, the peace deal could not be achieved because of the outfit's demands. According to government sources, the MHA is currently maintaining ''informal talks'' with NSCN(IM) through the Intelligence Bureau.
