On 28 October, a team from the NSCN (I-M), led by its Secretary General Thuingaleng Muivah and Ravi, met again to discuss ways to find an “honourable” solution by resigning the sticky issue of a separate flag and constitution for the Nagas. “The dialogue of more than four hours was not successful and the two sides agreed to meet soon. However, a final agreement between the NSCN (I-M) and the government is unlikely to take place by October 31, 2019,” an official development confidant. When the northeast was in turmoil, the centre re-entered the territorial clause shortly after, the ceasefire clarification was limited to Nagaland – much to the chagrin of the NSCN (IM) which accused the government of acting unilaterally. In August 2020, the National Socialist Council of Nagaland published copies of the Confidential Framework Agreement (FA).  The Naga groups insisted on changing interlocutors R. N. Ravi. and the publication of copies of the agreement was the result of a series of events from that request.   In October 2020, the current head of NSCN-IM Thuingaleng Muivah expressed strong reservations about further approval in a 55-minute interview with Karan Thapar.  In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi`s government signed a “framework agreement” with the NSCN (IM).
As part of the agreement, the group abandoned its request for a split, which lasted nearly six decades, and agreed to a settlement under the Indian Constitution. According to almost every report, the two parties are closer to a solution than ever before. When the “historic framework agreement was signed under the dynamic leadership of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” there was “a lot of hype and anticipation in the political circle,” adding that Modi also met with leaders of other parties who said that “he solved the longest political issue in Southeast Asia.” The NSCN (IM) fired on it with a strong statement. “Ceasefire is everywhere,” she said. “There will be something absurd for the Government of Manipur to question or question the wisdom of the authority of the Government of the Union (India) in the coverage of ceasefires. Over the past 18 years, a middle ground has created relative harmony in the region, particularly in the Naga regions of Manipur. Officially, there is no ceasefire, but a tacit agreement that Indian security forces do not disturb Naga fighters in Manipur as long as they remain in camps “taken into account” by the former. There are currently three such camps, called “TNO” in Indian security jargon: one in three districts dominated by Naga, Senapati, Tamenglong and Chandel. Naga`s groups in the state are equally vehement. “They only bark to assert their existence,” said Gaidon Kamei of the United Naga Council, Manipur`s leading Nagas body, which is sponsored by the NSCN (IM).
“It is clear that the ceasefire extends to all areas of Naga, including Manipur. That is not a problem. The center on Thursday extended the ceasefire agreement with the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-K (Khongo) by six months instead of a year after the COVID-19 outbreak, according to an official statement.
