Govt. not sure of time frame for final Naga accord [Security]
- Almost a year after the Naga framework agreement was signed by the government with the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah), the largest Naga insurgent group, and government is still not sure of giving a “time frame” for the final peace pact.
- The insurgent group had gone back on its demand for “full sovereignty.”
- R.H. Raising, the Kilo Kilonser (home minister) of the NSCN-IM, had said that GoI had agreed to group’s demand for a separate passport and a separate flag.
- At a meeting of the Ceasefire Monitoring Group, the government raised the issue of extortion by the NSCN-IM in different parts of Nagaland and Manipur and asked it to stop such activity.
- On August 3, 2015, the government signed the ‘framework agreement’ with the NSCN-IM for finding a final solution to the vexed Naga issue. Agreement was signed in presence of PM Narendra Modi and outfit’s leader T. Muivah.
- The NSCN-IM has been in talks with the Centre’s representative for the last 17 years ever since it had entered into a ceasefire agreement in 1997.
