Sumi Hoho has strongly opposed central government’s recent declaration which listed Nagaland under “Disturbed Area” for further period, from October 20, 2010 to Jun 30, 2011, under the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958. Pointing out that major Naga political groups were in ceasefire agreement with the government of India and that there was conducive and peaceful atmosphere in Nagaland, the Sumi Hoho vice-president H.Kashito Yepthomi in a statement queried: “Is central government not happy with the prevailing peaceful situation in Nagaland?” Further condemning the extension of “draconian law,” the Sumi Hoho appealed to all right thinking citizens, tribal hohos and Naga civil societies to out rightly denounce the same. Meanwhile, responding to NSCN (I-M) joint council’s recent remark on Sumi Hoho president Hokishe Yeptho,” the Sumi Hoho said the accusation was “baseless and unfounded.” “Therefore, the joint council should not personalize the issue and target any person individually,” said hoho vice president. Further, asserting that issuing such releases was “unfortunate” when all the Nagas including Naga political groups were striving and yearning for peace and reconciliation, the Sümi Hoho appealed to “all esteemed dailies to shun from publishing such statement in near future.”
