DIMAPUR, JUL 19 (NPN) | Publish Date: 7/19/2019 11:46:44 AM IST

Lotha Public Organisation (LPO) has resolved to disassociate from Lotha Hoho (LH) till the new team of LH was formed.

In a press release, LPO chairman Sulanthung Humtsoe and General Secretary Zaremo Kikon said the resolution was taken at a “brainstorming meeting” held on July 18, 2019 at Town Hall Baghty.

The signatories reminded LH that LPO was not formed on individual interest but it was “formed with the interest of 94 displeasure villages.” They said that the “prime design” of LPO formation was to express dissatisfaction and resentment against the incumbent LH team members, “who preoccupied their post without following certain guidelines (Stage Manage)”.

Further, the signatories reminded LH that LPO was just a temporary interim organisation/pressure group to rectify and reconstruct their new team following the guidelines on specific time frame.

LPO maintained that in no way it was intended to divide the Lothas to regulate parallel organisation, but to reconstruct LH new team following certain LH guidelines. 

“Eventually LPO will be automatically obsolete after new team of LH is formed,” they said.

At the meeting, LPO also strongly questioned as to why LPO chairman Sulanthung Humtsoe was excommunicated?  LPO also wondered on what ground LH exercised the customary Act in excommunicating Sulanthung Humtsoe from LH? 

LPO has reminded LH to function based on democratic principles and not to function like “military dictatorial or communist system of governance.”

With regard to Ralan Area Lotha Hoho (RALH) clarification dated July 17, 2019, LPO said it was not surprised by their press statement since RALH were not even present during LPO formation. 

They said that the chairman and GBs of 94 villages present during LPO formation extended unflinching support and unanimously endorsed Sulanthung Humtsoe as its leader.
