New Delhi [India], Feb. 25 (ANI): Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) on Friday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and questioned the Modi government over the Nagaland peace accord. "Where is that accord? We want Prime Minister to tell the country where is the accord he signed one-and-a-half years ago. Where is the accord he told us on phone that was settled?" CPI-M general secretary Sitaram Yechury said. "Parliament has not seen that accord. Not even the opposition party. So, I don't think there is any accord," he added. Earlier, Prime Minister Modi accused the Congress government in Manipur of spreading false propaganda on the Naga accord and said there was nothing in it that was detrimental to the interests of the state. "I assure you there is no single reference of ditching Manipur people or their interests in the Naga Accord," he said at an election meeting here. "O Ibobi Singh government was carrying on 'false campaign and misleading the people regarding the Naga Accord'," he alleged. (ANI)
