He did not deny the speeches of the Governor were generally approved by the Cabinet, Rio said these were Ravi’s “own words and we cannot make any correction.” He recalled that Ravi, who is Centre’s interlocutor for Naga talks, had also announced that negotiations would be concluded on October 31, 2019.
