Ceasefire In Nagaland Extended By One Year

The Government of India and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland, under the leadership of N. Kitovi Zhimomi and M. B. Neokpao Konyak, have mutually agreed to extend the Ceasefire agreement by another year with effect from April 28, 2016.

Now the agreement will end on April 27, 2017. The agreement main aim to bring lasting peace in the State of Nagaland with the involvement of Naga people. The agreement was signed in between the Centre and the GPRN/NSCN but made it clear that it won’t be joining the Naga peace accord as the pact is an understanding between the government and the NSCN-IM. 

While the Centre was represented by Satyendra Garg, Joint Secretary of Ministry of Home Affairs, North East Division, the GPRN/NSCN was represented by Jack Zhimomi and Chenyum Konyak in New Delhi. The GPRN/NSCN said the ongoing peace process was not suitable or acceptable comprehensively for the other Naga stakeholders.

The signatories also agreed that the ceasefire will adhere to the Ceasefire Ground Rules (CFGR) as mutually decided and signed by the two sides. The CFGR will be subject to mutual review and amendment with the involvement of both the parties. 

The GPRN/NSCN is one of the strongest factions of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland. It is a Naga nationalist Christian Terrorist group operating mainly in Northeast India, with minor activities in Northwest Myanmar. The main goal of the organisation is to establish a sovereign Christian state, “Nagalim”, which would consist of all the areas inhabited by the Naga people in Northeast India and Northwest Myanmar.

The NSCN has been declared as a terrorist organisation in India under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967Nagaland (NSCN) was formed on 31 January 1980 by Isak Chishi Swu, Thuingaleng Muivah and S.S. Khaplang opposing the Shillong Accord signed by the then Naga National Council (NNC) with the Government of India.
