15 August 2020 Current Affairs:Nagaland and parts of Manipur celebrated 74th Naga Independence Day on 14th August 2020,  amid the Naga political issue involving several extremist groups. The day is celebrated since 14 August 1947. The celebrations were lead by the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) in Nagaland. The day was celebrated by hoisting the ‘Naga national flag’, which is one of the demands made by Naga organizations for an honourable solution to the 23-year-old peace process. Nagas declared independence a day ahead of the Independence Day of India in 1947 seeking self-rule.

History
In the year 1947, India became independent from British rule. But the Nagas under the Naga National Council wished to remain free. Hence, a Plebiscite was conducted in 1951 where 99.9% voted for Naga independence. Following this, the Nagas did not take part in the first and second general elections that were held in 1952 and 1957. Hence according to the Nagas, the Bordoloi and Hydari Agreements were not implemented.
Later in 1963, Nagaland attained statehood and the moderates signed the Shillong Accord in 1975, which is the first peace agreement. But it has been rejected by the hardliners and is continued with the armed movement for Naga sovereignty.
