NTC opposes proposal for Pan Naga Hoho post solution

DIMAPUR, DEC 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 12/9/2019 12:17:44 PM IST

Learning that there was a proposal for formation of Pan Naga Hoho post Naga political solution, Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has announced its opposition to it.

Asserting that the proposed hoho was irrelevant without land and territorial integration, the council demanded that in the event of it being created, the headquarters should not be located in Nagaland. This was decided at the council’s general council meeting held at Dimapur on December 6. 

NTC pointed out that, while appreciating the predicament of one another between the negotiators, agenda on Naga territorial integration was excluded from political negotiations. More so the territorial integrity of the neighbouring States was protected. This being the factual position, the Nagas in the Northeast would remain as it was. As such the same yardstick should apply in respect of Nagaland’s territorial integrity and it should be protected, the council demanded.

This was stated in a press release by NTC president Toniho Yepthomi and general secretary Nribemo Ngullie.

The demand for Pan-Naga Hoho has taken a shrill cry after the conclusion of 22 years of negotiations between the government of India and the NSCN (I-M) and later the WC, NNPGs.

The negotiations were held under the ambit of the constitution of India in which sovereignty and integration were ruled out. Later the process for arriving at an agreement for solution ran aground over the demand for Naga flag and Naga constitution which was rejected by the government of India. 

Sources said the demand for Pan-Naga Hoho was probably the only card left but which has been rejected by all the 14 tribes of Nagaland including the WC of NNPGs.

The 14 tribes of Nagaland, WC of NNPGs and other voluntary organisations of Nagaland are not in favour of Pan-Naga Hoho which was proposed as a social-cultural body of all Nagas. The tribes of Nagaland including other NGOs are apprehensive that such a body if given a statutory status, would automatically result in redundancy of Article 371A for Nagaland.
