ENPO public rally memorandumto Prime Minister of India

As unanimously resolved and scheduled, a democratic public rally in total solidarity to the demand for a separate statehood by the people of Eastern Nagaland under the aegis of Eastern Nagaland Peoples’ Organization (ENPO) was successfully held at Mon HQ on August 9, 2022.
As per the desire of the public from the grassroots, the rally concluded with adoption of the following public resolutions:-
a) The public of ENPO of the erstwhile Tuensang Frontier Division of the North-East Frontier Agency (NEFA) i.e., the present Eastern Nagaland of Nagaland state shall continue to wholeheartedly pursue the demand for Separate State based on ENPO Memo vide No. ENPO/MEM0-02(Statehood)/PM/GOI/01 dated the 25th November 2010 at all cost unless and until it is attained.
The demand is based on popular “Grass-root” “Resolution and Mandate” encompassing every Village Council (Gram Panchayats) and Tribal Councils of Eastern Nagaland.
b) In the light of what have been stated by the ENPO during the last four rounds of bilateral meetings and a recent tripartite meeting of Govt. of India, Govt. of Nagaland and ENPO, the Govt. of India is now updated with ample knowledge about the untold difficulties of the people of ENPO.
And thus, resolved to request the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India for taking up the issue based on Shri Nitin Gadkari, the then BJP National President’s assurance “BJP would carve out a separate state of Frontier Nagaland if BJP comes to power in Lok Sabha Election in 2014 (Dated: 14th Dec. 2012)”.
c) The Govt. of India would be requested once again to respond to ENPO’s Public Representation VIDE NO.ENPO/PM/STATE DEMAND/53, DATED, the 13TH OCTOBER, 2021 addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, in which letter the ENPO had requested that, in the event of much anticipated Naga political solution, or the event of any unexpected prolonged delay in the talks, Hon’ble Prime Minister of India is requested for creation of separate Statehood for the people of Eastern Nagaland. Copy had also been endorsed to all concerned including NSCN(IM) Chief Negotiator, and NNPGs (WC) Convenor for kind information and necessary action.
