„I applaud their extraordinary courage and political maturity because by not being influenced by people`s emotions, they were able to judge what was in their best interest,“ he said. The stalemate over the demand for a separate Naga flag and constitution and the expected disruption of skills in Naga-inhabited areas outside Nagaland could cancel out the talks. In an interview on October 16, 2020, Th. Muivah, General Secretary of the NSCN (IM), had unequivocally refused to sign an agreement that did not contain a separate Naga flag and constitution. It is not advisable to suggest bypassing the NSCN (GI) in order to conclude discussions earlier. Restrictions on the implementation of skills outside Nagaland would undermine any possibility of peace by preventing the leakage of benefits to the Nagas in Arunachal, Assam and Manipur. The People`s Liberation Army crossed the Jinsha River on October 6 or 7, 1950 and defeated the Tibetan Army on October 19.   Instead of continuing the military campaign, China asked Tibet to send representatives to Beijing to negotiate a deal. The Dalai Lama believes that the draft agreement was drafted by China and that Tibetan representatives were not allowed to propose changes. In his remarks today, Governor Ravi said many of us could only try to imagine the extraordinary circumstances in which people gathered, kept a cool head and made the decision that was best for those caught in the crossfire.
The agreement was preceded and followed by a pacification programme along tribal and regional lines. After 1964, a district-by-district pacification approach was implemented – a logical consequence of the idea that had given the governor exclusive administrative jurisdiction over Tuensang District. Tribalism has been used to achieve political goals. Rivalry within the ranks of the NNC along the tribal lines reached a focal point with the assassination of General Kaito, which led to a series of killings along tribal lines. With the appointment of RN Ravi, the interlocutor of the Indo-Naga peace process, as Governor of Nagaland on 20 July 2019 and the repeal of Articles 370 and 35A on 5 August 2019, the Naga Peace Initiative has become an abyss. Intransigence on the issue of the Naga constitution and flag has created a situation in which the peace process survives from one deadline to the next (October 31, 2019 was announced as the first deadline and September 2020 as the second). Since rn Ravi ruled out the demand for a separate Naga flag and constitution in its governor`s speech on December 1, 2020, only the Sanguins still hope for a positive outcome. The solemn and unanimous NPC resolution aims to save the hopes and aspirations of the Naga people, he said, adding that the agreement was designed and drafted very consciously and carefully, taking into account all the demanding and exhausting socio-political realities, to serve as a basis for an honorable solution to the controversial Naga issue. (Unofficial translation of the agreement signed by the leaders of the four parties on Monday night) The solemn and unanimous NPC resolution aims to save the hopes and aspirations of the Naga people, he said, adding that the agreement was designed and worked out with great caution and prudence, taking into account all the prevailing social and societal realities, to serve as the basis for an honorable solution to the Naga issue. As the only living signatory to the agreement, Jamir said the NPC has always sought to create a favorable political environment in the region to clearly and unequivocally underscore the basis of the Nagas` legitimate claims and protracted political aspirations before the Indian government. . In their false and often comforting belief in full knowledge and de facto consciousness, people were dangerously inclined to apply distorted logic, analyze half-baked information, and draw false conclusions on issues that required detailed and careful understanding and examination, he said.
The NPC opted for the second option, and that is why the Nagas now had their government elected to shape their future according to their own choice and design, he added. Former Nagaland Prime Minister SC Jamir lamented on Sunday that the 16-point deal has been slandered over the years by vested interests, including those who have benefited from the fruits of the state. 15. The constitutional process is being pursued on the basis of the spirit of this fundamental agreement on federalism, forms of government, the electoral system and the judiciary. The Tibetan delegation first contradicted the No. 1 reference to the „aggressive imperialist forces of Tibet,“ but later admitted that there might be forces they did not know. Points #2 and #3 dealt with the meaning of „local government“, although the meaning of „national regional autonomy“ was not discussed as the Tibetan delegation felt that things would continue as before. The Ngapois delegation tried to remove the guarantees of power for the Panchen Lama in points 5 and 6, but the Chinese delegation replied that the Panchen Lama and the Dalai Lama should be treated in the same way; Either they guaranteed their power or they did not.
The Tibetans recognized the point. Fundamental differences over Number 8, the dissolution of the Tibetan army, led to the promise to renegotiate the issue later. The most controversial point was item No. 15 regarding the establishment of a military and administrative committee, with the Tibetan delegation believing that it did not agree with position No. 11 on the Tibetan local government, which is itself carrying out reforms. Most of the other points were accepted without comment or with minor translation adjustments. In order to avoid embarrassing problems for the Chinese delegation, agreements should then be reached with the Tibetan delegation on issues such as keeping the Tibetan army in separate and secret agreements.  As the only living signatory to the agreement, Jamir said the NPC has always sought to create a favorable political environment in the region to clearly and unequivocally emphasize the basis for the Nagas` legitimate claims and protracted political aspirations before the Indian government. Although no deadline for the establishment of the proposed registry was mentioned in the official RIIN notice, the Nagaland authorities have so far issued certificates to Indigenous residents using the december 1, 1963 deadline.
Nagaland was inaugurated on July 26, 1960 as the 16th state of India after the 16-point agreement between the Indian government and the Naga People`s Convention. .
