Take confidence of the common people: LPO to Ravi

Noting that common Naga people were the consensus voice of the people, the Lotha Public Organization (LPO) has urged the government of India’s Interlocutor to the Naga Peace Talks, R.N.Ravi to listen to the voice of the common people before signing the peace accord. 

In a statement, Lotha Public Organization chairman, Sulanthung Humtsoe and general secretary, Zaremo Kikon reminded Ravi not to be carried away by some few vested Naga leaders stating that signing the peace accord without taking the confidence of the common people will be like “inaugurating the bloodbath gate” for the Nagas. 

In this regard, Lotha Public Organization called upon Ravi to handle the situation seriously in order to avoid “Kashmir like situation in the Naga country”. 

Meanwhile, Lotha Public Organization has clarified that “few Lothas who had vigorously pressed hard to sign the peace accord during the consultation meeting held at Hotel Japfu, Kohima on October 18, 2019” were not “Lotha people consensus” but had represented with their own personal capacity”. 

The organization therefore cautioned that those leaders will be held responsible for any eventualities if any untoward incidents propped up in the event of the Naga political solution. 

Lotha Public Organization also pointed out that out of the 66 tribes comprising of Naga people, 54 tribes have been recognised by the Naga Hoho. Therefore, Lotha Public Organization said that taking the tribe name by “few vested interested people like the Lothas cannot decide the future of the 54 recognised Naga tribes”. 

It further urged the Naga people not to shy away or stay in comfort zone but raise their voice like them and also called upon the Naga patriotic and peace loving citizens to think for the upcoming younger generation so as to live peaceful live as one irrespective of the artificial boundary “which has been forcefully demarcated by the government of India”.
