Nagalim: Government of India Holds Another Round of Talks with Naga
Muivah along with NSCN (I-M) Chairman Isaac Chisi Swu, returned from Nagaland last month after a nearly seven-week stay there. Swu and Muivah, who came to India for the second time in November end last year, had met the Prime Minister before going to Nagaland. They had come after a gap of three decades in January, 2003 to hold talks with the Vajpayee Government. The Naga leaders, who met Home Minister Shivraj Patil last week, have been demanding unification of Naga-dominated areas in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, a move opposed by these states. This demand saw bloody clashes betwee Naga and Kuki tribes in 1990s and had triggered fresh round of unrest in Manipur three years back.
