On the other hand, Home Minister Singh told Zeliang that the negotiations of various Naga groups with the interlocutor will continue.
The home minister also told the Nagaland Chief Minister that announcing the dates for assembly elections is the prerogative of the Election Commission and the elections have to be held on schedule. Any reports to the contrary are incorrect.
Zeliang statement came a day after the Naga Hoho, an apex Naga tribal body, sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi's help in postponing the Assembly polls, saying that the Naga insurgency problem should be resolved first.
