Coinciding with its 38th general session, the Chakhesang Public Organization (CPO) observed its 6th Chakhesang Day at Phek town on Friday.

A press release from the CPO stated that Nagaland’s Planning & Coordination, Land Revenue and Parliamentary Affairs minister Neiba Kronu on the occasion stressed on the requirement of strong unity among the Chakhesang community to live in this diverse culture.  While also advocated for economic development by harnessing the available resources in the region.

MLA Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu said when the entire Nagas were expecting a solution/settlement of Indo-Naga political issue as Christmas present or New Year’s gift,  much to their surprise Nagas were gifted with CAB/CAA as Christmas ‘gift and AFSPA as New Year’s gift. Azo stated that GoI need to be more sincere and serious in taking the Naga political issue and urged GoI to expedite the solution to the Indo-Naga political issue.

“Government of India (GoI) has never and will never give importance to the Naga political issue because of the fact that we have only one MP seat and as such politically we are insignificant. However, India must not forget that Nagaland’s occupies a strategic geographical position sharing its boundaries with countries like China and Myanmar, so if the GOI continues to ignore the wishes and popular demand of the Nagas the damages that can take place will be hard to be repaired and it may cost India dearly,” Azo stated.

Stating that the country’s economy has been thrashed, Azo said “our men and women- young and old, our work places, our educational institutions, our factories, our industries, our worship places and even our homes are no more safe under this BJP led government”. He said even the very existence of secular India is at threat.

He maintained that the time has come for the Nagas to be mentally prepared to take a decision to stand “for their faith for better or for worse once UCC is introduced this year in the parliament.” Come what may we should never compromise our Christian faith, Azo added.

Sharing greetings, executive secretary Chakhesang Baptist Church Council (CBCC) Rev. Khrotso Mero stressed on the need to live up to Christian principles. While also underlining the need to maintain the beauty of their tradition and culture, he said we must be aware that it should not go against the principle of Christian ethos.

CPO president, Mikha Kenye dwelt on the need to maintain peace, unity and harmony amongst the people.

The CPO resolved that in order to maintain the ecological balance there is a rising necessity for conservation and preservation of forest cover under CPO’s jurisdiction like Zanubu, Kapamodzu Range and other forests. In this regard, the community forest conservation zones will be set up in consultation with the villages.

Further the CPO has declared 2020 as the year of tree plantation and shall organize tree plantation programme under its jurisdiction.

It also resolved that the ban on import of pigs shall be continued.

To meet the production requirements of pork, seminars will be organized on livestock production especially on piggery farming.

It resolved that cattle rearing have to continue but properly manned so that the cattle do not damage/ruin the crops of the farmers.

The resolution also stated that this is necessary in order to boost the economy of their people; crop rotation and farming of cash crops are being encouraged. Free roaming of cattle has to be stopped in order to instil confidence in the farmers to continue with farming of such crops.

CPO also resolved that the ban on hunting, fishing and burning of jungles within the jurisdiction of the CPO shall be continued and strictly enforced.

It also resolved that as per conventional practice and constitutional provision, CPO general sessions shall be held every year.

However, the Chakhesang Day on January 10 shall henceforth be organized and observed by the CPO only during the final year of the CPO official tenure and in the preceding years.

It will be observed by all Chakhesangs in their respective areas.

Meanwhile, the CPO expressed resentment for the continued placement of Nagaland state under Disturbed Area and the extension of imposition of AFSPA in the state.
