    GUWAHATI: The National Socialist Council of Nagaland, Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM), after 37 years of armed struggle and 20 years of negotiations, has finally settled for 'co-existing together with shared sovereignty' — a new experiment that a federal India with strong unitary features will embark on with the signing of apeace agreement soon. In a statement, a spokesperson of NSCN (I-M) said, "As of now, the Nagas have agreed to co-exist together under shared sovereignty. The ongoing Indo-Naga political talks are progressing smoothly. The framework agreement, which will ensure peaceful coexistence between the Nagas and India with shared sovereignty, will surely usher in peace and a brighter political era for the Nagas."


    In August, 2015, the NSCN (I-M) and the Centre signed a 'framework agreement' in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a final settlement. Though the exact meaning of shared sovereignty hasn't been divulged yet, sources hinted at the possibility of Nagas getting a separate constitution, flag, parliament and judiciary. The spokesperson added that the government, in the 'framework agreement' has recognized the Nagas' sovereignty and has also accepted that the Nagas are unique people with a separate entity and sovereign rights. "India has recognized the uniqueness of Naga history and culture.

    The Nagas were independent before the arrival of the British. Only a part of Nagalim was conquered by the British. There is no merger agreement between the Nagas and India. India invaded Nagalim and set up arbitrary boundaries " the spokesperson further said.

    Then cede Tawang, Mizoram, Tripura, withdraw claims from Aksai Chin (and settle China issue), cede Sikkim,, cede Terai region of UP and Uttaranchal (annexed under British during Nepali-British wars).
    Sigh!


    Uninformed comments :(

    On topic

    Something I had been openly telling about .. the Naga Accord by Modi when Article 370 would be cropped up :D

    You give lollipop to one kid, the others will follow soon. Better keep their mouth shut and help the genuine Naga people in preserving their culture with more funds and bring them in mainstream economy.

    The more you entertain militants the more they'll demand.

    Separate Flag, parliament, Constitution and judiciary....
    In short another 370 in the making. Are we willing to take that risk?
    Maybe the plan is to give them all the goodies but slowly integrate the region with the mainstream India and then abolish all the stupid provisions.

    What the hell is this?

    You may be a moron but India has religious freedom.

    So you must be one of those blind hindu rshtra bakhts. India belongs to all Indians. Not for any one religion. This is 2017.

    There are 263 ethnic groups in the Northeast. This modern and unique political move is just the beginning to bring peace and let that region thrive as India's gateway to the riches of ASEAN. Comparing it to article 370, religious bigotry and Pakee proxies is BS.

    But it is akin to Article 370!

    Something I have been openly 'rubbing' into those who call for removal of Artcle 370! :D
