Now, Rahul Gandhi takes on PM Modi over Naga accord

What are you hiding Congress retorts after Defence Minister refuses to disclose Rafale deal

Rahul Gandhi is the only alternative to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said on Sunday as he emphasised that "unity of opposition" would bring forth a "wave of change" in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found. Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don't mean anything.

Eleven parties including the ruling Naga People's Front in January had decided not to contest the February 27 polls, agreeing to the demand of tribal bodies and civil society groups to resolve the Naga issue first.

The Nagaland Accord was signed in Aug, 2015 by Modi and National Socialist Council of Nagaland to end the insurgency in the region. Modi was present on the occasion.

Following this, Rahul accused Modi of not taking into confidence various stakeholders when the Naga Framework Agreement was signed in 2015.

Naga militant leader Isak Chishi Swu, who led a bloody insurgency in the Northeast for over three decades, died in 2016.

Recently, the BJP made a decision to form an alliance with the new Nationalist Democratic People's Party (NDPP) led by former chief minister Neiphiu Rio for the upcoming state elections.

Further recalling Modi's conversation with former Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Rahul said, "Modi called up then Congress President Sonia Gandhi one evening and told her we have solved the Naga problem and signed an accord".

"Nobody has understood what the Prime Minister had signed, (or) whether he had signed. Then they wrote to the Union home minister, and he too informed them that he had no idea what exactly the accord was", he had said. "Seeing the huge turnout at the party's roadshow, "Vijay Sankalapa Yatra", this morning, I now have no doubt that the corrupt Left Front government will be rooted out in the Assembly polls", he said at a public rally in the state capital.
