Konyak Union (KU) and executive board council at a meeting held at Mon HQ on September 6, 2019, which thoroughly discussed all aspects of the impending Naga political solution, has wholeheartedly welcomed it in principle.

In a press statement, KU president S Howing and general secretary Wango Konyak asserted that the executive body, however, “accorded the demand of the Frontier State moved by the ENPO and so long pending with the G.o.I; Centrality to the concept of the solution and grant of statehood should form part and parcel of the same.” KU stated that erstwhile “Tuensang Division” of the then NEFA comprising the present four districts of Eastern Nagaland amalgamated to the then Naga Hill districts of Assam to form Nagaland state. 
However, KU said that even after lapse of more than 50 years the area remained stagnated due to lack of opportunity in all fronts. “By the time, our people arrived and open our eyes the doors of opportunity had been constricted,” KU maintained. It also stated that job reservation made for over four decades had not borne fruit “due to the devils in implementation.” KU asserted that the sufferings were countless and “our educated youths, mercifully turning to evil ways.” 
Asserting that Naga political solution was a long awaited one and “we want to savour its fruition”, the KU, however, said “would it bring any succour to our youths is the question often asked and writ large on people faces.”
“In the circumstances the KU decided to make it a point to demand grant of statehood a part of the present solution,” the union stated.
