Frontier Nagaland: ENPO reaffirms Aug 26 resolution


The Central Executive Council (CEC) meeting of Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO) on Wednesday reaffirmed to stick by the August 26, 2022 resolution of “not taking part in any election process of the Central and State until and unless a separate Statehood- (Frontier Nagaland)-is granted by the Government of India, as demanded by the people of Eastern Nagaland.”
This was among several resolutions adopted at the CEC meeting held on November 16 at Mon town, sources said.
Sources said that ENPO was open hold talks with the Central government in order to resolve the issue and fulfill long-cherished dream of the people of Eastern Nagaland.
In this regard, it was learnt that a delegation of ENPO leaders and talk team were scheduled to meet Central leaders and deliberate on the issue. Sources said that the delegation was hopeful that the government of India would consider the genuine and legitimate demand and come up with a solution that would be acceptable and honourable to the people of Eastern Nagaland.
At the meeting, sources said that the house also reaffirmed that in the event of there being no early response from the Central government to the demand of people of ENPO areas for a separate Statehood, “the public of Eastern Nagaland region shall demand resignation of 20 legislators of Eastern Nagaland from Nagaland Legislative Assembly and all political party workers, both central and regional.”
On Hornbill festival, the CEC meeting resolved to uphold the October 14, 2022 resolution to not take part in the annual Hornbill Festival from this year.
Source said that though the Eastern Nagaland Legislators’ Union (ENLU) had conveyed the state government’s appeal to revoke the decision, the house unanimously resolved to stand by its decision. In this regard, the respective tribal bodies have been endorsed to implement the resolution.
