The Naga Peace Process and Taxation:
The battle for accountability by ACUAT
 
The talk will look at various aspects of the over half a century long conflict between the Indian State and the Naga movement. However, it is premised on the rise of factionalism in the Naga national movement which has subsequently led to internecine killings and unabated taxation on the people by different factions of the Naga Political Groups (NPGs), represented by the National Socialist Council of Nagalim and the Naga National Council. It is thematically structured into three sections; first, the background or origin of the conflict starting from the formation of the Naga Club (1918 to 1947). Second, the phase on the fragmentation of the Naga movement into various factions which led to internecine killings; and, the emergence of civil society organisations to unite Naga Political Groups (NPGs), to stop unabated factional killings and importantly to check unabated taxation. Emphasis will be made especially, on the movement under the banner of the Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) with its theme ‘One Government, One Tax’.
 

Mr. Khekhiye Sema, IAS (Rtd.), Senior Consultative Member, ACAUT. He retired in 2010 from the Indian Administrative Service. His last posting was as Commissioner & Secretary to the Government of Nagaland in the Department of Tourism, Arts & Culture.
