Opinion | Naga peace plan lost in haze of optics, obstinacy
The framework agreement is hollow, no more than an intent to work towards an agreement
This week we look at the Naga peace process, another key result area for the government that is in stall. This is partly on account of the government’s own hype since 2015 and complexity of the problem. There is also the cussedness of some key players. And now, the overall side-tracking since December on account of popular protests over the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, the National Register of Citizens, and a government engaged in belligerent fightback and focused on imminent elections to assemblies in Delhi and Bihar after losses in Maharashtra and Jharkhand.
