The Nagas-Saga and an uncertain future? Nagas after Nehru to Modi

Rituparna Bhattacharyya, Venkat Pulla

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Nehru, the first prime minister of India, was not apologetic about sending Indian Army to sort out the Naga rebellions, although in his approach he appeared to be sincerely trying to win them over. ‘His successors did not bring any major innovation in the Indian State’s Naga Policy; rather they largely continued with his policy of the carrot of autonomy with the stick of military measures. This in fact has become a standard policy of dealing with such minority nationalism in India’ (Nag 2009, 55) (Fig. 8.1).
