Now that an NLD Government is expected in February 2016, the role of the National Socialist Council of Nagaland – Khaplang (NSCN-K) in the country’s peace process, and the future of the group as a whole needs to be reassessed.
On 16 September, the National Socialist Council of Nagaland – Khaplang (NSCN-K) met with the Government’s Union Peace-making Working Committee (UPWC) to discuss the group’s inclusion in the forthcoming ceasefire agreement. On the same day the Indian Government announced that it had banned the group for five years under the Country’s Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967.
Although, the NSCN-K is based in Myanmar’s Sagaing division its primary dispute is with the Indian Government as it wants to create a united independent Nagaland based on a federal system that is to include parts of Manipur, Assam, and Arunachal Pradesh in India and parts of Sagaing Division.
