  • Parithosh Desai asked: What is the current status of Naga peace accords/talks? What are the objectives that the Nagas and the Government hope to achieve from these talks?

    M. Amarjeet Singh replies: The government has been making sincere efforts to end the decades old Naga insurgency through political negotiations. In the past, efforts aimed at finding a political settlement to the conflict were rebuffed by the insurgent leadership. However, in recent years, the government has been able to engage the Naga leadership particularly the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Isak-Muivah) or NSCN (I-M), resulting in the signing of a ‘Framework Agreement’ in August 2015, the details of which are not available in public domain.
