ZPO rejects its dissolution by ‘paid gathering of people’

Sharply reacting to the dissolution of two ZPOs by the general convention of Zeliang people at Jalukie town on September 13, 2019, the Zeliang People’s Organisation (ZPO) Tuesday termed as “simply nothing more than unethical” the statement issued by Tumda Newme and Khenglubo “who respectively are stated to be the sessional chairman and sessional secretary of a paid gathering of people”.

In a press release, ZPO president Ramdi Meru and general secretary Kiepeube Zehuny asserted that ZPO was a principled and mandated apex organisation of the Zeliang tribe of Nagaland. They said ZPO has been representing its people in all manners of activities and given due recognition by all tribes and also the government of Nagaland. ZPO said it would continue to represent the Zeliang tribe with all dignity and satisfaction in all platforms even in the days to come.  “This right of the ZPO brought into being for sheer selfless sacrifice in the service for the welfare of the Zeliang people is absolute and therefore neither challengeable nor negotiable,” the organisation asserted. 

According to ZPO, the delusion that the Zeme Council and Liangmai Council could meddle in the affairs of the ZPO, and “imprudently go further” to declare its dissolution was the “pinnacle of absurdity of the outlook of that paid gathering”.  ZPO alleged that onus of misleading the two “respectable councils” was entirely attributable to the “wayward” and present executive of the Zeliang Welfare Society (ZWS).  The organisation claimed that ZWS was previously constituted by ZPO to look after the management of the Zeliang building in Dimapur, but “have never come back to the terms and language of the ZPO.” Stating that its conviction was upholding the inherent rights and protecting the indigenous Zeliang people of Nagaland, ZPO has, therefore, affirmed that should any further confusion be created in any manner by people of vested interests it would “seek to befittingly address routing a means of serving legal notice to end all menace.”
