The Congress party stated that the newly elected Member of Parliament from Nagaland, S Supongmeren Jamir, will refrain from participating in any Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting resolutions regarding the Naga political issue without the consent of the PAC-Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) and the All India Congress Committee (AICC).

This decision was made during the NPCC Political Affairs Committee meeting held at Congress Bhavan in Kohima on Friday. The meeting, chaired by S Supongmeren Jamir, who is also the President of the NPCC, expressed appreciation to the state government for including Jamir in the PAC. However, the Congress party stated that the various committees constituted earlier by the state government on the Naga political issue have become more of rhetoric and repetition without making any significant progress. In this regard, the party resolved that the MP will not participate in any PAC meeting resolutions without the consent of the PAC-NPCC and AICC.

Earlier this month, the Nagaland Government constituted the PAC, headed by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio as Convenor and Minister for Power & Parliamentary Affairs KG Kenye as Member Secretary, with a total of 26 members comprising MLAs and MPs of Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha to review and discuss all major issues relating to the Naga political issue.
