Electoral Politics Amidst Insurgency

(p.335) 15 Nagaland
Party Competition in Indian States

Amongla N. Jamir

Oxford University Press

This is an attempt to really understand the politics of the state of Nagaland beyond the chronic problems of insurgency and unrest. It is a window to the different undercurrents at play. It has been shown that the struggle for power and the various techniques employed to achieve that goal has become more Machiavellian and a far departure from the tribal way of life. It is also an understatement to simply say that Lok Sabha election is a duel between the regional interest and national interest. In fact the voting behavior of the people is largely influenced by the state politics rather than by the national politics. The ever popular notion of centre versus state has been studied. It also traces the genesis of the concerted effort of the Nagas in shaping their political destiny long before they even dreamt of becoming a state under the Indian union.

Keywords:   Naga Club, Peace Card, leadership crisis, Machiavellian, Greater Nagaland, Eastern Nagaland, hierarchy of corruption
