    Social Media Under Scanner, NE Put On Alert As Naga Talks Enter Last Leg

    The Centre has ruled out a separate flag and Constitution for the Nagas as demanded by the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah)

    The Assam Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh governments have put their respective police forces on high alert along the borders, with the next round of peace talks likely to end the Naga political problem scheduled for October 31st, 2019. Social media is also under strict vigilance, specially in border districts ahead of the inking of the final agreement on the Naga peace talks. 

    An inter-state Border meeting was convened and hosted in Assam’s Charaideo at Sonari Circuit House on the issues related to ongoing Naga peace talks on October 29th, 2019. Police officers from Assam, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh were present at the meeting which was chaired by Vaibhav Nimbalkar, Superintendent of Police (SP), Jorhat.

    Pushpraj Singh, SP Golaghat (Assam), Bharat Reddy, SP Longding (Arunachal Pradesh), Amitava Sinha, SP Sivasagar (Assam), Imti Toshi, SP Wokha (Nagaland), Jyoti Ranjan Nath, Additional SP (B) Sivasagar (Assam), LL Lemtur, Additional SP Mon (Nagaland), K Mon, SDPO, Tuli, Mokukchung, (Nagaland), Hankiumong, SDPO Tizit (Nagaland) and Anand Mishra, Charaideo (Assam) took part in the meeting.

    The NGOs and organisations trying to “rake up issues or spread rumours” will be dealt with strictly by the police forces in the three states. “Direct and continuous meeting of SP’s and SHOs should become a routine matter. All rumours on social media should be immediately busted by putting across facts,” the meeting discussed.

    Ground-level frequent meetings by Border SHOs, sharing of inputs, information and even possibility of joint exercises in bordering areas were also discussed in the inter-state border meeting.

    It may be mentioned that the Nagaland government has issued orders cancelling leave of the bureaucrats and police personnel and asked them to stay put in their duty stations till further notice.

    The Centre has made it clear last week that negotiations with the Naga rebel outfits, which have been going on for the past 22 years, won’t continue beyond October 31st, 2019. The proposal of Isak-Muivah faction of NSCN (NSCN-IM) for a separate flag and constitution for the Nagas has been rejected by the Centre. Security has also been beefed up in the Naga-dominated hill areas of neighbouring Manipur.
