Shri O.N. Shrivatsva assumed office of the Governor of Nagaland on August 5, 1994. He had earlier served in Nagaland as a young IPS officer. He married Ms. Nini, a Naga lady from Angami tribe. It was like a homecoming for him to pick up threads and revive initiatives to restart the peace process. He was personally and directly responsible for the peace accords with the Mizo National Front, Tripura National Volunteers and the All Bodo Students’ Union. On the instructions of the then Prime Minister, P.V. Narsimha Rao, the dialogue with the NSCN (I-M) was started and three meetings arranged abroad.
