Assam leader files RTI seeking Naga accord details

Guwahati, Aug 6 (IANS) A leader of the Assam unit of the Congress party has filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking details of the Naga peace accord signed on Monday.

Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) secretary Bibhuti Bhushan Borthakur on Thursday sent a letter to the union home secretary seeking the contents of the agreement signed between the central government of India and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM).

“Why the signed agreement has not been made public so far? Reasons if any, should be dispensed with in accordance with the provision of RTI Act, 2005,” said the letter.

The historic peace accord avowedly marks an end to the six-decade-old insurgency. However, the government as well as the NSCN-IM made it a hush-hush affair, and the details of the accord are yet to be made public.
