Peace in North-East - Is There a Long-Term Solution?
A Central government note alleges that the current spate of violence along the Assam-Nagaland border began with a land dispute between two men - a Naga and an Assamese - which was fanned by social activists and politicians, with insurgent outfits in both states jumping in.

For now, 200 companies of central paramilitary forces are already deployed in the area to help control the situation from deteriorating further. This is an old dispute, from the time state borders were drawn. So we ask, what long-term solutions are possible for peace between states in the north-east?
