FNR also gave a call to “re-imagine the Indo-Naga Peace Process,” a call for a complete overhaul which signals a dead-end for the ongoing peace process. But the Centre’s interlocutor for Naga talks and Deputy National Security Advisor, R N Ravi, denies that the talks have reached a dead-end.
The Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO) has been demanding the creation of a separate state comprising the four eastern districts of Tuensang, Mon, Longleng and Kiphire for over a decade now.
On August 3, 2015, the central government and the NSCN-IM signed the framework agreement. But neither side released its details. The separatist group has been in talks with the government since 1997 after the signing of a ceasefire agreement.
The committee also demanded the state government to convene a special session of the Manipur Assembly by September 15 to enable all the 60 representatives of the House to take a unanimous resolution to safeguard the emotional integrity that exists between the hills and valley people.
In August 2015, the Centre had announced that a framework agreement had been reached with the NSCN(IM), one of the primary Naga underground groups in the state, 18 years after a ceasefire was negotiated in 1997.
