DIMAPUR, AUG 8 (NPN) | Publish Date: 8/8/2019 12:28:20 PM IST

A day after the former MLA Sulanthung, and R. Ezong, IAS (Retd.) demanded Kohima Lotha Hoho (KLH) chairman and general secretary to offer official apology if they cannot prove their allegations, the KLH Thursday asserted that it had nothing to apologize or prove more than the “publicized truth” that Sulanthung and R. Ezong have broken the Lotha Hoho (LH) guidelines.

In a rejoinder, KLH chairman Nchumbemo Tungoe and general secretary Thunglamo Ovung have instead demanded Sulanthung and R.Ezong to answer to the public whether they filed their nomination papers for LH chairman post or not. KLH said if not then it would have no option but to apologize. With regard to duo’s threat to take legal recourse, KLH said it had no authority to prevent anyone from doing so.

Further, KLH said it was an organ of Lotha Hoho “in the likeness of the parts of a human body.” It said that “when the head is paining, the legs or hands cannot say that it does not affect them.” Likewise, KLH said that since it was a vital unit of LH, it had every moral duty to defend the dignity and honor of its parent body. “So where is the question of KLH taking extra territorial jurisdiction stand for discharging its obligatory duty?” KLH stated queried. KLH also described as “simply unreasonable” the LPO’s assertion that “KLH has no authority or moral right to issue press statement on behalf of LH”. At best, KLH said such reasoning could “come only from a limited mind.” The hoho stated that its press statement was not done ‘on behalf of LH’ as alleged, but performed as a moral obligatory duty, as a unit, in defense of the dignity of LH.

“KLH’s rebuttal is to clear the air polluted by vested interest individuals who misconstrued that the guidelines of LH were not followed in the selection of the present office bearers,” it stated.

LYH affirms stands: Lotha Youth Hoho (LYH) Thursday affirmed that it was vehemently opposed to any entity trying to fragment the unity and integrity of the Lotha. 

LYH through its media cell asserted that any act of such nature would be viewed treason and shall be dealt befittingly.

“In all its complications and vexed portrayal of facts and fakery, the Lotha Youth Hoho while acknowledging the search committee of the Lotha Hoho for reposing their faith, the new team stands to safeguard the integrity of the Lotha and to work towards promoting coherent ties with all stakeholders and the citizens,” it stated.

Meanwhile, LYH has also cautioned the government departments in the district not to entertain the practice of ’transfer with post’ under any circumstances. It stated that such such related cases would not tolerated. LYH also cautioned all the departments to be more vigil in dispensing their primary obligations
