Manipur and 'first' BJP CM Biren Singh may make some difference in Naga peace deal

Manipur and 'first' BJP CM Biren Singh may make some difference in Naga peace deal

By Nirendra Dev

New Delhi, Nov 1 (UNI) Now that Naga peace talks have ended on a 'positive note' and the ball is in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's court to take a final call on a report from interlocutor and Nagaland Governor R N Ravi, perhaps the neighbouring state of Manipur and one politician can make some difference.
Of course - the unrest in Manipur after 'cease work' paralysing the state on Thursday had left the BJP central leadership and especially Union Home Minister Amit Shah irked.
On Thursday evening - as the Naga peace talks 'entered' the final and crucial stage - Mr Shah ordered mandarins in his ministry to issue a statement stating that no final word has been said or could be said until the states of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh have been consulted.
It was a strongly worded statement and specific use of the word 'rumour' and 'credence' even had left many Naga leaders confused.
This actually has a background and here comes the role BJP's 'first' Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
Prior to the developments on Thursday, Home Minister and BJP president held audience with CM Biren Singh and a delegation of Manipur leaders from various parties.
The Chief Minister had led a delegation of all Manipur political parties and they had presented their views to Mr Shah on "the Naga peace talks and it's impact on Manipur".
The impact of protest on Thursday (Oct 31) was felt in at least nine districts - six in valley region inhabited mostly by Meiteis and in three Kuki-inhabited hill districts of Chandel, Churachandpur and Kangpokpi.
Known for taking decisive stance and quickly, Mr Shah knew how to bring down the temperature and the angst against the Centre.
