Interacting with academicians at Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU), PPA president Nikh Kamin said that the time has finally come for a paradigm shift in the Centre’s policy towards the sensitive tribal states of the northeastern region, party sources said.
       
Due to the proliferation of underground outfits and the economic conditions of the people going from bad to worse, the realization of all the regional parties to come under one banner of Northeast Regional Political Front (NERPF) was a welcome step, he said.
       
The consensus arrived at by 10 regional parties to help each other in the next Parliamentary and Assembly elections to root out ‘high command’-based national parties like Congress, BJP and NCP was a move in the right direction, the party said in a statement on Friday.
