    The Home Ministry today lodged a protest with the Ministry of External Affairs over the visit of eight envoys of the European Union to Nagaland without any intimation and security clearance and raised concern on the delegation meeting with political leaders and civil society

    Besides, sources said, several vested interests were trying to "internationalise" the vexed Naga issue and they may try to exploit the diplomats' visit to highlight it in Europe..

    MHA upsets over EU diplomats' visit to Nagaland

    Mod edit:- mind your language and don't shoot wild allegations.

    this is a very very serious issue. first clinton visited a single state without visiting central government. now these 8 Ambassadors from European countries visiting individual state without informing any one in central government; that too without obtaining security clearance. plus, how can the state government of nagaland can even host these Ambassadors without informing central government and without necessary security clearance.

    this is how we got ruined in the first place. Britisher pampered and nurtured individual kings and kingdom while east india company gained and we as a country suffered. now this is happening again.

    if i was PM, i would deported all these 8 ambassadors or have them arrested for travelling without necessary security clearance. i would have sent a strong message without worrying about consequences. at-least these Ambassadors or the state government of nagaland should have the courtesy to notify someone in central government about their arrival.

    there isn't really much business opportunity in nagaland for all these 8 countries. is this visit about christian missionaries?

    under congress rule, do each state government is running a parallel government to that central government backed by foreign elements?

    "Rules require that the MEA asks the MHA for security clearance before permitting foreign nationals to travel to the North East."

    - this rules has been clearly violated. how can we let foreign elements violate our rules, law and order at their own convince. it looks like these foreign element do give shyt to our central government because individual states are supporting them for some petty cash deals at the expense of our sovereignty.

    i dare any of our politicians, ministers, ambassadors, etc to visit texas or any other state in USA without informing white-house first.

    What a confused Govt.

    /\/\/\ Sir, the issue is complex. Nagas probably have the oldest issue, which remains unresolved. What keeps our politicians from resolving those? I guess Europeans got an invite from Nagas on this. If we cannot keep our house in order, neighbors will always play spoilsport.

    I agree with you on the internal issue thing. Decades old issues cannot be solved in months, I agree. But, it's high time, GoI is pro active and pragmatic.

    Oracle,

    I am aware as to what are the influences that keeps the issue alive.

    If you remember it was the foreign agencies which started the show in Nagaland and they are still playing their role - this time with Govt blessings!

    Now MEA says that they had clearance from IB and state security, without state clearance its impossible for the delegation to meet Chief Minister of the state.

    They got permission from Government, it was unilateral decision by MEA.

    /\/\/\ what do you mean by MEA akin to Central Govt. Cabinet Ministers are chosen by the PM. So yes, having permission from MEA and State govt does the job.

    Anyone want to guess what the UK's reaction would have been to an Indian High Commission request to meet with some IRA members to understand their point of view?

    This government should be sacked for allowing something like this. Krishna should be sacked immediately.

    MEA is arm of GOI. It posses powers granted by union government. There is no separate central government permission here. MEA conducts its business in the name of Union Government of India.

    The question here is why Home Ministry was not CCed about this communication. And if they were in the loop, then whose responsibility is it to actively seek MHA's clearance? Should MEA or any department themselves approach MHA or the home ministry should act proactively and intervene in-time to carry their ministry-specific security checks? Above all this, is there any pre-defined protocol over background checks of any foreign personal visits routed via Union ministries ?

    Europe explores Nagaland investment potential - The Times of India

    KOHIMA: European ambassadors visiting the state met senior government officials at the Heritage, Kohima on Monday for a brief interaction on investment avenues in various sectors in the state. The meeting was hosted by Nagaland state chief secretary, Lalthara.

    Welcoming the dignitaries, Lalthara said that the European Union is an exemplary set-up - a global village where boundaries are respected but there is freedom to move within the European countries - and the world should learn from it.

    Lalthara gave a brief overview of the troubled history of Nagaland. He, however, added that the state is growing with the rest of the country and is a good place to invest.

    The European delegates were on their second visit to the northeast and explained that the purpose of their visit was to improve the relationship between India and European countries.

    The visiting ambassadors, who hailed from Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia, also visited Nagaland University, Kohima campus, Meriema.

    Interacting with the vice-chancellor, academic staff and students of Nagaland University, the dignitaries said that as ambassadors, part of their mission is to discover the country and to work more closely with India. They also remarked how impressive it is to see so many young women in the university like in European countries. They said participation of women is important for the transformation of their role in society.

    The visiting ambassadors also stressed on cooperation between European and Indian varsities and to promised to create opportunities for exchange of students and faculties between Nagaland University and European varsities.

    Nagaland University vice-chancellor B K Konwar gave a speech on 'Nagaland University in Perspective' on the occasion.

    Meanwhile, the European ambassadors held a meeting with leaders of political parties at Nagaland Assembly, Committee Hall, Kohima today. The meeting was presided over by speaker Kiyanilie Peseyie.

    Peseyie said a chance to interact with ambassadors of European countries is rare and expressed hope that the meeting would be a good beginning. The visitors said that the objective of their visit is to understand the Indian diversity and to understand Nagaland better and its challenges for economic development in Nagaland in particular.

    Minister for higher education and NPF president Shurhozelie highlighted the challenges of economic advancement and added that the visit is unique and will be a milestone in the history of the Nagas. He said that the formation of the Nagaland Legislative Forum of the 11th Nagaland Legislative Assembly, comprising all elected members of the NLA, is a big boost to finding a solution to the long-drawn Naga political problem. He called upon the visiting ambassadors for their support and suggestion to the Indian government for finding a solution to the Naga political issue.

    MLA and senior Congress member K V Pusa briefed the delegates about the Naga people living in neighbouring states of Assam, Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and one-third of the Naga population living in Myanmar. Replying to questions put forward by the ambassador of Finland on the participation of women in Naga society, he said that they receive equal rights as men.

    Tokheho Yepthomi from Congress and leader of the opposition said that Nagas are still economically backward, but the visit of Europeans ambassadors and its outcome would lessen the problem.

    EU there for investments?

    Another throwing of sand in the eyes!

    They really take Indians to be fools and so think that any old hocus pocus will be believed.
