Consider the following statements regarding Naga Peace Process:

  1. Naga separatist groups are demanding for ‘Nagalim’ consisting of all the areas belonging to the Naga people in Northeast India and northwest Myanmar.
  2. Naga separatism started in 1947 when Nagaland was given statehood.
  3. Currently the Naga peace talks have stalled due to the insistence of the separatist groups on having separate Naga flag and constitution. 

Which of the above statement(s) is/are correct?

Correct Answer

Solution : B

After India became independent in 1947, the Naga territory initially remained a part of Assam.

In 1957, after an agreement was reached between Naga leaders and the Indian government, the Naga Hills region of Assam and the Tuensang frontier division to the northeast were brought together under a single unit directly administered by the Indian government.

Nagaland achieved statehood in 1963, however, rebel activity continued.

Naga peace process has been ongoing since mid-1997 when the NSCN (I-M) (Isak- Muivah) declared a ceasefire with the armed forces. Other groups began opting for talks in 2001. However, it has been put in a cold storage” since the Framework Agreement was signed in 2015.

The Centre signed a “framework agreement” with NSCN (IM) in 2015, and an “agreed position” with the separatist groups in 2017. However, the NSCN (IM)’s demand for a separate Naga flag and constitution has been a delaying factor in signing a final deal on the protracted Naga political issue.
