The Northeastern region of India presents a context where continuing insurgency and conflict of decades has given rise to a parallel polity of multiple languages of identity, ideology and imagination which exists alongside a constitutional legal polity and challenges the authority and legitimacy of Indian state. And most peace building initiatives on the part of Indian government have largely been attempts to address political aspects related to granting power through politics of Accords disregarding other stakeholders in the conflict. Such initiatives conducted at elite level generate dissatisfaction and mistrust and undermine the legitimacy of the process, resulting in the growth of parallel militant outfits by aggrieved groups. This paper show the problem of insurgency faced by Nagaland and Mizoram and I excluded other North-Eastern states because it is only Nagaland and Mizoram which suffered a lot from secessionist movement in North-East India. Paper is generally based on secondary resources i.e. News paper, magazine, Books, Journals, Internet sources and from other historical record etc.
