Lotha frontal organisations have authorised Lotha Hoho (LH) to represent the community in all consultations, decision making and signing of any document related to Naga political settlement.

In a statement, LH chairman Mhondamo Ovung and joint secretary Amos Odyuo said that a meeting of all Lotha frontal organisations held at Wokha on September 23 empowered the hoho to co-opt members from various Lotha organisations and subject experts to assist it in the matter. The meeting also resolved that if any member of LH was in any way threatened or opposed by any individual or group, the Lotha tribe would take a collective stern action against the culprits.

The organisations further demanded that the agreed points between the Government of India and Naga political negotiators be made known to Naga people before signing the final agreement.

The meeting recalled how the Naga political movement took roots on Lotha soil with the formation of NNC in February 1946 at Wokha, followed by decision on Naga plebiscite at Sanis in 1951, installation of FGN at Lakhuti in 1956, how first Naga Army general and World War II military medal winner Yanpamo Lotha sacrificed his life on November 6, 1956 while fighting the Indian Army at N Longidang village, Khodao Yanthan was a close confidant and vice-chairman of AZ Phizo and remained so till his death, NNC held its convention at Wokha in 1964 and resolved to accept the first ceasefire with the Indian Army and the Nagas of Nagaland convened a meeting at Wokha in 1994 and Naga Hoho was formed. 

Recounting these historic events that took place on Lotha soil, the meeting observed that these were testimony to the fact that Lotha people had sacrificed and suffered much like any other Naga tribe. 

Asserting LH’s support to the Naga national movement and settlement, the meeting emphasised that all Nagas must likewise overcome petty personal differences and work together for the common Naga cause.

The hoho prayed that Naga people may understand each other, stop pursuing vested interests, stand united for the common cause and help all negotiating groups and the interlocutor, besides praying for God’s blessings with wisdom for all stakeholders so that an honourable Naga solution could be reached at an early date. 

“We wish that our negotiators be blessed with divine wisdom so that they are able to bring home a solution that is honourable and acceptable to the Nagas,” LH stated.
