Nagas and their assertion to govern

The longing demand for a sovereign ‘Nagalim’ has been an ongoing struggle since the 1950s. It was a secessionist movement climaxing into an armed conflict led by the Naga National Council (NNC). Over the years the movement has quelled or rather made to seem that way after the AFSPA was forcefully implemented on almost the entire region of the northeast including Nagaland, terming these areas as 'disturbed areas'. Since the 1950s, several events have changed the political landscape of Nagaland however, one element that has remained unchanged is the occupation by AFSPA.
