I heard the Greater Nagalim is claiming Tirap and Changlang Districts belong to them and their demand is for a separate country of their own. But today I read a very different story, ENPO is demanding a separate state! See the report from the Home Ministry:

2.3.2012 The Eastern Naga Peoples Organization (ENPO), an apex body of six Naga tribes has raised the demand for creation of a separate State comprising the four eastern districts of Nagaland (Mon, Tuensang, Kiphire and Longleng) and two districts (Tirap and Changlang) of Arunachal Pradesh, with a special status within the Indian Union.

Another interesting note on ENPO:

Complicating issues further is the Eastern Naga Peoples Organization (ENPO), an apex body of six Naga tribes in Nagaland, again raising the demand for the creation of a separate ‘Frontier Nagaland’ State comprising the four eastern Districts of Nagaland (Mon, Tuensang, Kiphire and Longleng), with a special status within the Indian Constitution. The demand has already been turned down by both the Centre and the State Government. Further, NSCN-KK has threatened ENPO on the issue of Frontier Nagaland. The demand was first raised in the year 2010.  ENPO has also rejected the State Government’s offer of an autonomous council, regional council and economic package, in lieu of ‘Frontier Nagaland’.

This is good news that the Center turned down their demand. Otherwise, there will be further unrest with fights with this group and the AP Govt.
