Peace Accord With Center ‘On Verge Of Conclusion’, NSCN-IM Says A Week After Greater Nagalim Controversy

Published on 2 April, 2017 at 3:29 pm By

In 2015, the BJP-led Government at the Center created history by signing a peace accord with Naga separatist group NSCN-IM.

The Naga outfit has now claimed that the political talks following the deal, aimed end violence in the northeast once and for all, are now on the verge of conclusion.

According to reports, NSCN-IM appealed to Naga people not to indulge in rhetoric and rumors that “that can lead to momentary emotional outburst”.

Urging them to “patiently wait for the better future under the final solution”, NSCN-IM told the people to be cautious with words and actions so as not to cause derailment of the talks.

The appeal comes a week after the outfit’s general secretary Thuingaleng Muivah shocked many by saying that the peace deal with the Center recognizes the demand of all Naga outfits for ‘Greater Nagalim’ – a unified territory of all Naga inhabited areas cutting across the states.

In his address to NSCN-IM cadres at Hebron on the occasion of their ‘38th Republic Day’, Muivah said:

“The historic Framework Agreement recognizes the unique history, the identity, the sovereignty, the territories of the Nagas. It also recognizes the legitimate right of the Nagas to integration of all Naga territories.”

The statement was challeneged by many, including former Assam CM Tarun Gogoi.

No one knows what exactly the Framework Agreement states. It has been kept a secret ever since the deal was signed.

The agreement was signed between the Center and the NSCN-IM. The other Naga separatist group, NSCN-K was left out. NSCN-K cadres continue to indulge in militant activities in the region.

The formation of Greater Nagalim will mean that many states will lose a great chuck of their current land area. The maximum loss will be of Manipur, where BJP is currently in power.

 

Squashing the concerns, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said that there was “no such agreement or decision”.

In its recent appeal, the NSCN-IM said that the best solution for the Naga people is being worked out. Thuingaleng Muivah will now be holding the next round of talks over the issue at New Delhi.
