Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Naga accord signed in 2015, questioning credibility of his word.

The Gandhi scion took to Twitter and said, "August 2015, Mr Modi claims to create history by signing the NAGA accord. Feb 2018, Naga Accord is still nowhere to be found. Modi ji is the first ever Indian PM whose words don't mean anything."

The Nagaland Peace Accord was signed in August 2015 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN) to end the insurgency in the region.

Earlier on Wednesday, Congress president Rahul Gandhi blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "unilateral" decisions for the situation prevailing in Nagaland vis-a-vis assembly elections as several civil society groups and political parties have sought deferment of the February 27 polls.

He had also said the Prime Minister did not take into confidence various stakeholders when the Naga Framework Agreement was signed between separatist National Socialist Council of Nagalim -- Isak Muivah (NSCN-IM) and the central government in 2015.

At present, several Naga groups and political parties are demanding the postponement of the state polls to facilitate early resolution to the protracted Naga insurgency issue.

However, the Government remains firm on holding assembly polls in the state on the scheduled dates, without any obstruction.

Union Minister and in-charge of Nagaland BJP, Kiren Rijiju had said, “We have conveyed to all armed rebel groups to refrain from indulging in any activities disrupting the elections. The ground rules should be followed strictly.”
