Lone Rajya Sabha member from Nagaland, Khekiho Zhimomi has suggested the Myanmar government for an administrative state for the Nagas within Myanmar. Zhimomi interacted with the Myanmar government over the aspect of Nagas in that country and the suggestion was same as that of Nagaland, chief minister Neiphiu Rio, according to UNI.
The chief minister and his ministerial delegation in May this year had suggested Ambassador of Myanmar to India U-Kyi Thein in New Delhi seeking an exclusive administrative status for the Myanmar Nagas. On that request, Thein had assured that the matter would be taken up with Junta leaders about recognising Myanmar Nagas with an administrative or political status as a unique group within the greater Burmese stratum.
Zhimomi informed that he was in touch with Myanmar leaders on regular basis through various forum and platform and suggesting them about the possibility of such state for the Burmese Nagas.
