Original maps demarcating the borders of Nagaland have been lost, Home Minister P. Chidambaram said here Wednesday. “The Nagaland government had submitted the maps in September 1979. These were forwarded in October 1979 to the government of Assam for its comments. The Assam government has informed us that the maps are untraceable,” Chidambaram said during question hour in the Rajya Sabha. “The government of India did not keep a copy. The maps were sent in the original,” the minister added. The statement is significant as the separatist NSCN has been fighting for six decades to create a Greater Nagaland by slicing off parts of three neighbouring states to unite 1.2 million Nagas.
