Content is not yet disclosed
Eight members of civil society organizations of Manipur those who started a movement against the government for modifying the state’s boundary will visit PM Modi today.
In the meeting, they will discuss the topic of Naga Peace Accord and will put forward their part on the matter. The Content of the accord, however, not yet disclosed by the government.
While going in the background, in 2015, a draft peace pact known as the Framework Agreement was signed between the centre and the armed group NSCN(IM), whose stated goal is to form a “Greater Nagaland” with a much-expanded territory.
This has triggered concern in neighbouring Assam and Manipur about a possible loss of state territories, though the centre has in the past assured that state boundaries would not be touched.
The state government is trying to resolve the issue as this decision of the Centre rose a serious debate on the matter.
The state is going for the Legislative Assembly Elections next year and this is the reason why the NPF led DAN government want a solution to the matter before these polls.
While on the other hand, the Manipur Civil society is scheduled to meet the Prime Minister to discuss the matter and put forward the points from their end to highlight the situation after this peace accord.
