Taking a clear stance on the issue of renaming Dimapur, the Congress party on Thursday stated that they were against renaming of Dimapur as proposed by the state government. The statement was made by CLP Leader Tokheho, at Dimapur Airport, after a memorandum was submitted to the Governor before his departure. He also disclosed that the decision to oppose the issue was taken during a recently held CLP meeting. Congress MLA Hewoto, who was also present, asserted that it was not a question of “minority” or “majority” but about historical fact and added that it was the duty of the government to protect the minorities. Further, he clarified that besides addressing the Naga political problem, there was no discussion among the legislators for renaming of Dimapur as stated earlier by chief minister, Nephiu Rio.
