Dimapur, Jan. 22 (EMN): The demand for ‘solution before election’ – advocated and demanded by almost all the leading Naga organisations – is likely to take a final shape on Jan. 25 next.
On that day, according to a press release received on Mon., the representatives will “deliberate on the common slogan” of solution before election. A coordination committee of Naga civil society is said to have been formed during a meeting of Naga civil groups and tribal bodies convened by the Nagaland Joint Christian Forum (NJCF) at the NBCC’s Platinum Hall on January 22.
The statement was issued by Theja Therieh of the Nagaland Tribes Council. “The Committee members representing Nagaland GB Federation, ENPO, Naga Hoho and NTC had brief meeting after the consultative meeting and decided to convene an emergency meeting to deliberate on the common slogan “Solution before Election” on January 25, 2018 at NBCC Platinum Hall, Bayavu Hills, Kohima at 1000 Hrs,” it stated.
The committee has requested all “recognized political parties of Nagaland, all apex tribal organisations of Nagaland and Naga Civil Societies of Nagaland” to attend the meeting. The statement bore signatures of Theta Therieh (NTC), HK Zhimomi (Naga Hoho), David Sangtam (ENPO), and Shikuto Zalipu (NGBF).
In a separate statement issued to our Kohima Bureau, the NJCF informed that it’s president Rev. Dr. Zelhou Keyho, in his opening remark, stated that solution to the Indo-Naga political issue and state election lie ‘outside the perimeter of the church’. He was stated to have emphasized that the responsibility of the church was to bring the people together and build mutual trust among the people. Therefore, the NJCF has taken upon itself to convene the meeting, it stated.
Representatives of Naga Hoho, Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO), Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC), Central Naga Tribal Council (CNTC), Naga Students’ Federation (NSF), Acaut, Ao Senden and Chakhesang Public Organization, NSUI and the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee were some of those who attended the meeting.
The representatives were said to have expressed their views on the need to come together to take stock of the situation rather than sail in their own boats, according to the statement.
