It remains to be seen whether the framework agreement will be reached or whether the Nagas will betray again. But what is certain is that even if their society is now broken and cemented, the Nagas will never stop saying “kuknalim” (glory of our country). However, this agreement had a small influence and it can be said that it only catalyzed the entire Naga movement. On the same evening that the agreement was signed, Hydari warned Naga leaders that if the Naga Hills district refused to join the Indian Union, force would be used against them. Despite the warning, the NNC wasted no time in opposing it and proclaimed, on August 14, 1947, the full independence of the Naga people, on the eve of India`s independence. With Hydari`s death in 1948, the deal died. It is not without reason that many have cynically wondered if this is “another deal”. The first agreement in the history of Naga actually dates from before India`s independence. On 27 June 1947, the Indian Dominion Government and the NAGA National Council (NNC), created the previous year to defend political sovereignty, signed a nine-point agreement.

The agreement provided that the Naga Hills would exist in India for a period of 10 years, after which NNC was able to renew the agreement. The Shillong Accords were rejected as “balances” by Swu, Muivah and SS Khaplang, who formed the National Socialist Council of Nagaland in 1980. The first two separated in 1988, when Khaplang revolted and killed more than 200 of the first`s men. The truth about the discord remains uncertain, but there were reasonable grounds to believe that serious differences of opinion on the talks with India had emerged. Each accused the other of working hand in hand with the Indian government. The seeds of mistrust, many circles still believe, were sown by the Indian government.
