Janata Dal (United) Nagaland state unit on Wednesday said that the party has decided to put up an agenda in the next meeting of the Peoples Democratic Alliance (PDA) for carrying out a similar exercise of updating the NRC in Nagaland in the form of thorough electoral revisions or any other methods that could be appropriate and deemed fit with December 1, 1963 as the cut-off date and year. JD (U) Nagaland through its media cell recalled that a massive electoral revision exercise was conducted by the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) some decades back. However, it said due to various reasons, a successful conclusion could not be reached. “Nevertheless, a beginning was made and an awakening bell was sounded,” the JD(U) unit stated. It, however, cautioned that indigenous rights and privileges of Nagas and other rightful non-Nagas based on the cut-off date and year should not be misused by any individual or authorities so as to accommodate other non-indigenous people. The JD(U) unit also asserted that indigenous inhabitants of Nagaland should not allow any outsiders to infringe upon their rights under any circumstances.
