New Delhi: After rounds of discussion on October 31, New Delhi and Naga insurgent groups finally decided on a Naga peace deal. The agreement is being drafted now.
The northeastern states’s deputy chief minister, Yumnam Joykumar Singh, said that the Naga peace deal will not be suitable for Manipur as several districts like Ukhrul and Senapati in Manipur are Naga dominated. He further added that an autonomous council comprising of only Nagas will not work in Manipur as the population is not homogenous there.
On Wednesday, Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu said that his government will not part with any territory of the state for the NSCN(I-M)’s demand to create a Greater Nagaland. The agreement of the neighbouring states like Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam is crucial for the deal as the Naga population is spread in these states.
