Indo-Naga peaceful solution
Nagaland should be given autonomy status like J&K under article 370 to solve the issue. Since, Nagas are sincere with the peace deal and want to have federal relation with India there should not be any problem. Apart from that Tirap and Changlang districts could be merged with Nagaland to form Nagalim state within India, since these two Naga regions are already having autonomous district councils in Arunachal Pradesh. Nagaland was also curved out of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. Though all Naga areas of Assam were given to Nagaland it was not so with Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh perhaps because of the lack of knowledge of Naga history and culture in the central govt. In Manipur the Senapati and Ukhrul districts are wholely Naga from time immemorial. These two districts should also be merged with Nagaland. However, the other hill districts of Manipur are multi-ethnic and part of Manipur Kingdom from ancient times for about 2000 years and should not be considered for merger.
