DIMAPUR, AUG 26 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/26/2019 11:52:11 AM IST

In a snub to the Naga Hoho, the Sumi Hoho, Western Sumi Hoho and Naga Council Dimapur have asked their members not to attend the Naga Hoho meeting scheduled to be held on August 28 at Agri Expo Dimapur.

SH through its media cell has directed all its units to abstain from attending the August 28 meeting and cited the 2016 decision that withdrew support to the Naga Hoho. SH has therefore discouraged any Sümi organisation or individual from attending the meeting.

WSH: Western Sumi Hoho through its media cell has also debarred any Sümi within its jurisdiction from attending the Naga Hoho meeting on August 28. WSH has declared that anyone attending the said meeting would be doing so purely out of his or her own vested interest and would not represent the WSH in any manner whatsoever.

NCD: Naga Council Dimapur has directed all its units to abstain from the proposed Naga Hoho meeting on August 28 as the it was convened without prior intimation to the NCD even if it(NCD) is a co-opted member of the Naga Hoho. NCD president Bangerloba said the decision was made at an emergency meeting of NCD on August 26 which deliberated on the proposed NH meeting on August 28 in Dimapur.

It may be recalled that earlier, the Ao Senden debarred the NH from holding its proposed meeting in Mokokchung.

The only organisation from Nagaland which has decided to attend the meet is the newly formed Lotha Public Organisation led by Sulanthung Lotha ex-MLA.

According to LPO, the decision to attend the meeting on August 28 was to strengthen the Naga Hoho as the apex organisation of all Nagas.

In a press release, LPO chairman Sulanthung Humtsoe and general secretary Zaremo Kikon stated that LPO, Dimapur based unit members, different ranges, circles and areas from Wokha district would be attending the meeting showcasing Lotha traditional attire. LPO said Lotha soil has been an important landmark in the Naga national movement, adding that formation of NH was also an idea conceived by the Lothas under the leadership of former Lotha Hoho chairman R Yanthan in 1994.

Therefore, venerating Wokha district as a historical landmark, LPO said it was determined to restore back the NH.

It also urged all tribal leaders to rebuild the “broken and fragmented” Naga society and “come on board for dogmatic transformation, reformation and restoration of Naga Hoho.”
