In spite of Nagaland government’s plea to withdraw Nagaland from the “Disturbed Area” list, the Centre Monday declared Nagaland as ‘Disturbed Area’ for a further period. Union home minister P. Chidambaram while presenting the report card of the home ministry for the month of October, said the period has been extended from October 20, 2010 to June 30, 2011 under the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958.
The centre government was urged to withdraw the disturbed area tag, as the government of India was engaged in dialogue with both factions of NSCN.
