nscn(im) pactNEW DELHI- Nagaland’s neighbors are wary of the peace pact signed between the NDA government and the NSCN-IM on Monday which has raised hopes of improving the conflict situation in the northeast, in view of the Naga outfit’s “expansionist designs”.

One of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland’s (NSCN-IM) prime preconditions for resolving the peace process was the integration of all Naga-inhabited areas. Referred to as Greater Nagaland, its map includes five hill districts of Manipur, two of Arunachal Pradesh and large swathes of Assam bordering Nagaland.

Political parties and NGOs in Assam felt the accord could have a positive impact on the militancy scenario in the northeast. But they have the “Naga rebels’ agenda” in mind.

“We do not know the details yet but if the accord ensures lasting peace within the confines of Nagaland, we welcome it whole-heartedly. However, including any disputed part of Assam in the deal is not acceptable,” Pradyut Bordoloi, former minister and Assam government spokesperson said.
