Rengma Hoho (RH) has reminded the state government to consider the demand for Tseminyu district at the earliest. 

In a press release, RH president Kenyuseng Tep and general secretary Thonchilo Kath stated that the Rengmas have given enough justification to the government on its demand for district and it was up to the government to do justice to the Rengmas.

Stating that it stood firm on the demand, RH said it sees no reason as to why a district should not be given to Rengmas.

The hoho maintained that Rengma have contributed for the Nagas and would continue to uphold its commitment towards the development and welfare of the Nagas and its interest. RH, however, asserted that it expected the government to reciprocate to their sacrifices. “We believe our rights will not be subject to suppression by natty gritty norms and add casualty to our rightful demand”. It said that Rengmas as a community were also equal to any other community of the Nagas and deserved recognition.

Asserting that Rengmas demand for equal opportunities and rights, the hoho said there was not an iota intension of antagonising and polarisation on their issue as their demand was of equality and justice.

RH expressed confidence that the present government under the leadership of Neiphiu Rio would grant their demand “without a second thought.” The hoho said it expected every leader across the party line to “sensitively support our demand.”

RH appealed to the government to expedite the district for Tseminyu and not to delay the issue as their rights have been deprived for long.
