DIMAPUR, JAN 21 (NPN) | Publish Date: 1/21/2020 11:26:41 AM IST

No major issue is left to negotiate between the Government of India and armed groups of Nagaland and the ball is now in the court of the rebel groups to pave the way for signing of the peace accord.

In its report, The Assam Tribune, quoted “highly placed sources in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) who said that “negotiation between the Naga rebel groups and the Government is complete and only the accord is left to be signed”. 

The AT said that as part of the agreement reached between the Government and the rebel groups, two autonomous councils would be set up in the Naga inhabited areas of Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur under the provisions of the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of India. Nagaland will have one more Lok Sabha seat and the Government will take effective steps for the rehabilitation of the members of the rebel groups.

However, the report said the demand for a cultural integration of the Naga inhabited areas (Pan-Naga Hoho), has been rejected as a large section of people of Nagaland. It also noted that demand for a separate constitution and flag for Nagaland has been rejected. 

The report also said Ravi has held extensive talks with civil society groups and also consulted with governments of Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh. 

The report quoting sources said though the Government has been talking with the NSCN (I-M) and NNPG separately, yet the objective is to bring all together for the signing of the agreement as there will be only one agreement. 

The Centre will also have to address the issue of a few hundred cadres of NSCN (I-M) in Myanmar who will have to be brought back to India before the signing of the Accord so that they also surrender along with the other cadres. The other issue is that some members including senior cadres of the NSCN (I-M) are involved in “unlawful activities” such a gun running and car lifting. The report said this was not acceptable for the Government of India and that this has been informed to the leaders of the rebel group.
