The hindu

Why this question:

The Naga peace process appears to have hit a roadblock after 22 years of negotiations. The Centre’s push for a solution to the issue by October this year and the non-flexibility of the Isak-Muivah faction of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (NSCN-IM) on the “Naga national flag” and “Naga Yezhabo (constitution)” are said to be the primary reasons. 

Key demand of the question:

Explain the Naga peace process and the possible effect it will have on neighboring States. Comment on the role played by the NSCN-IM in resolving the issue.

Directive:

DiscussThis is an all-encompassing directive – you have to debate on paper by going through the details of the issues concerned by examining each one of them. You have to give reasons for both for and against arguments.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction: 

In brief explain what has triggered the current situation in the Peace process. 

Body:

Bring out the history of Naga issue.

Explain in detail the Framework Agreement – An agreement on the political parameters of the settlement was worked out with the working committee of these groups, clubbed the Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs), on November 17, 2017. This agreement ostensibly made the peace process inclusive but it bred suspicion about the central government exploiting divisions within the Nagas on tribal and geopolitical lines.

Discuss the effect on Neighbors.

Conclusion:

Conclude with way forward.
