Rengma Hoho (RH) has affirmed its support for implementation of delimitation in Nagaland, saying it was a timely exercise as per the constitution of India.

In a representation addressed to the chairman, Delimitation Commission of India, the RH president Kenyuseng Tep asserted that any attempt to derail the delimitation issue in would be devoid of constitutional provision and tantamount to injustice of equality in re-adjustment of Assembly seats in Nagaland.

RH stated that some districts in Nagaland have been “enjoying numerous seats under the manipulated 1972 delimitation” depriving some communities including Rengma tribe of assembly seats.

The hoho stated that any talk of the 2001 census being flawed as the reason to pressure the Government of India not to implement the present delimitation exercise in the state was discriminatory and dishonest. 

It said that bowing down before “irrational pressure and argument” would be a defeat of Indian Democracy. RH has, therefore, appealed to the commission and the Centre to conduct the delimitation in the state of Nagaland upholding the constitution.
