Lotha Lower Range Public Organization (LLRPO) and the Lotha Lower Range Elders and Officers Forum (LLREOF) Tuesday affirmed “unflinching support” to Lotha Hoho, Lotha Students’ Union (LSU) and other aggrieved bodies their endeavours to facilitate the implementation of the constituency delimitation in Nagaland. 

In a joint statement, LLREOF convener W Chenithung Humtsoe and LLRPO president Nonghothung Yanthan said the decision was taken at a on June 27, 2020 joint meeting wherein the members deliberated on the issue of delimitation and its effect on Wokha district in general and Bhandari Sub Division in particular.

The signatories said that the meeting welcomed the Centers’ decision to carry out constituency delimitation in Nagaland, which they said was “long overdue.” 

The house urged the government and the committee on delimitation to carry out the exercise “in the most unbiased manner in the interest of fair play and justice for all.” 

They said that such effort was expected to pave the way for correcting the past error that resulted in socio-politico disparities and economic backwardness of the people in various afflicted areas in the state.

It may be mentioned that the Lotha Hoho (LH) had on June 11, 2020 affirmed full support for the proposed delimitation exercise in the state, saying distribution of assembly seats in Nagaland had not been done fairly. LH had stated that 1971 delimitation seemed to have been “politicised, anarchical, biased and discriminatory” and as though it was done “at the whims of the officials” who were then at the helm of power and in charge of delimitation. 

Meanwhile, Lotha Students’ Union (LSU) on June 26, 2020 demanded that the process of delimitation should be carried out and completed within the stipulated timeline as mandated by the Constitution of India based on “truth, fact and logic”.
