NSCN-IM, one of Naga`s largest groups, signed a framework agreement on August 3, 2015 to end the decades-old issue. In early 2017, Mr. Ravi informed a parliamentary body that it had signed a framework agreement with the NSCN-IM after reaching an agreement within the Indian Federation with a “special status” and that it was an abandonment of its previous position “with India, not within India”. The NSCN said it had so far renounced the publication of the agreement, which respects “the tacit agreement between the two parties not to be made public for India`s security reasons.” He said that Mr. Ravi had taken an unwarranted advantage and began modifying and manipulating the agreement to mislead the Nagas and the center. The framework agreement, which was shared on Tuesday in a detailed press release from NSCN-IM, states that “both sides have understood each other`s respective positions and are aware of the universal principle that, in a democracy, sovereignty belongs to the people. As a result, on 3 August 2015, the Indian government and the NSCN, which respects the aspirations of citizens for sovereign power as defined in the powers, reached an agreement as an honourable solution. The Indian government has recognized through the agreement that the sovereignty of India and Nagas belongs to their respective peoples. He said: “With `included`, this means that all Naga must be included in the agreement in different administrative units and political camps. The coexistence of the two entities is self-explanatory.
This means that the two peoples and the two nations will coexist. Political and legal experts recognize that the concepts of “coexistence” and “shared sovereignty” apply to two entities, not one. The Nagas will co-exist with India, which shares sovereign powers, as agreed in the framework agreement and defined in jurisdiction. But they will not merge with India. Gohil said the government needed to clarify and clarify whether shared sovereignty had been discussed as part of the framework agreement. The outfit said it was determined to stick to the agreement to solve Do-Naga`s political problem. Mr Ravi signed the agreement on behalf of the Centre in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The other two signatories were Isak Chishi Swu, who died in 2016, and Thuingaleng Muivah, 86, who is leading the talks. He stated that when he asked for the details, the Centre did not give details and later discovered that it was not a peace agreement, but a framework agreement. In 1997, the NSCN (I-M) signed a ceasefire agreement with the government.  The agreement ensured that, although the government did not put pressure on counterinsurgency operations against the NSCN (I-M) team and its leaders, the rebels would not target the armed forces. “Both sides have understood each other`s respective positions and are aware of the universal principle that, in a democracy, sovereignty belongs to the people. As a result, on August 3, 2015, the Indian government and the NSCN reached an agreement as an honourable solution that respects the desire of citizens to share sovereign power according to their powers.
It is a great satisfaction that the dialogue between the Indian government and the NSCN has been completed and we are confident that it will enable a new lasting and comprehensive relationship of peaceful coexistence between the two entities,” says the initial framework agreement. Mr. Gohil asked the government for answers and said that this was not a secret agreement and that the people and the country should be aware of it. The reason for the rush to trigger a framework agreement and crash was the deteriorating health of Isak Chishi Swu, who was treated in a New Delhi hospital.
