John Bosco Jasokie (died 19 October 2005)[1] was a Naga politician. He became the Chief Minister of Nagaland in two different occasions as part of the Naga National Democratic Party. He was earlier a guide for Allied forces during the 2nd World War.[2][3][4][5] He was expelled from the Naga National Council after he differed with Angami Zapu Phizo and expressed his view that independence was unrealistic for a landlocked hill region with few natural resources.
