“August 2015, Mr Modi claims to create history by signing the NAGA accord. Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found. Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don't mean anything. #CantFindTheAccord,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted from his official handle.
Rahul Gandhi’s swipe at PM Modi came a day after the BJP announced to contest the Nagaland Assembly election together with Nationalist Democratic People's Party (NDPP).
After years of peace talks, Modi govt had signed a peace accord with Nationalist Socialist Council of Nagaland – an armed rebel group – to end insurgency.
Under the accord, the rebellion group had accepted Indian Constitution and gave up its demand for independent "greater Nagaland".
However, last month, the ruling Naga People's Front including 10 other parties had decided not to contest the elections which is scheduled to be held on February 27.
They wanted the demand of tribal bodies and civil society groups to resolve the Naga political problem should be met first.
