CNTC urges state govt to start oil exploration

Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has urged the State government to start oil and natural gas exploration and extraction in consultation with stakeholders.
Resolving this at the get-together-cum cultural programme, it further observed that the three districts of Central Nagaland were being deprived of development in comparison with other districts and hence appealed to the State government to ensure proper development in the area on a par with other districts.
Besides resolving to form Central Nagaland Youth Forum, the house also resolved to review the constitution of CNTC, besides agreeing to constitute sub-units of Central Nagaland Coordination Committee of Kohima, Central Nagaland Gazetted Officers’ Forum and Central Nagaland Women Coordination Committee of Kohima.
The meet further urged the Central government and the negotiating parties to expedite political solution with the knowledge of the stakeholders before the upcoming general election scheduled in 2023.
The house also declared unflinching support to Nagaland Foothill Road Committee towards completion of the project successfully.
Meanwhile, Central Nagaland Mothers’ Association (CNMA) with K Atoli Sema as president and Zuchano Patton as general secretary was formed during the programme.
Delivering his speech, CNTC president T Lanu Imchen said the council was formed to work for the well-being of Ao, Lotha and Sumi tribes and to work together united for the common cause of the entire Nagas.
Addressing the programme, Ao Senden president Chubawati Longchar and Sumi Hoho president Nikheto Jimomi also called for unity of all sections of people and appealed everyone to stand together and extend support to CNTC to strengthen its activities for the welfare of Naga society.
Lotha Hoho chairman Mhondamo Ovung welcomed the delegates while a special prayer for all leaders under CNTC family was offered by Wokha Town Baptist Church pastor Rev Abemo Jungio.
Colourful performances were also presented on the occasion by the three tribes – Ao, Lotha and Sumi.
