New Delhi, Mar. 15 (ANI): Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju will today make statement on Naga peace accord in Lok Sabha.
The accord was signed in August 2015 in presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh had earlier refuted Rahul Gandhi’s claim that he was not informed before signing a peace pact with Naga insurgent group NSCN-IM saying the Congress Vice-President’s statement was ‘completely false and baseless’ and he ‘misled’ the Parliament.
The Home Minister’s reaction came after the Congress vice president told the Lok Sabha that Singh was not aware of Naga peace accord which was signed in August 2015 in presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Modi in Lok Sabha, Gandhi said the former released Pakistan from a small ‘cage’ in which it was put after the 26/11 attacks by his sudden visit to Lahore and bringing a ‘fair and lovely’ scheme to launder black money.
He alleged that Prime Minister Modi did not listen to anyone’s opinion, including his ministers and party MPs, on issues like his visit to Pakistan and the Naga accord. (ANI)
