Nagaland Governor Calls for Unity Among Hohos

Nagaland governor PB Acharya, has reiterated that unity among the Nagas was a prime necessity to enable ongoing peace talks be successful. In a press release issued on Monday, the Governor rued that division and disunity among the Hohos, for whatever cause, could lead to sacrificing peace and development in the state.

Expressing deep concern over the dissociation of three major tribal bodies- Ao Senden, Lotha Hoho and Sumi Hoho- from the Naga Hoho, Acharya said that he was very much concerned about the unity of the tribal Hohos in order to carry forward the ongoing peace talks of NSCN (I-M) with Government of India and added that the ongoing peace talks should not be derailed by the disassociation of three main Hohos from Naga Hoho.

“These tribal bodies may have genuine and logical reasons for their disassociation with Naga Hoho,” Acharya said. He, however, maintained that whatever may be the reasons for their disassociation, the civil society, NGOs, student bodies, mother’s association, etc should stand united to make the peace talks successful.

The governor pointed out that after a long 17 years, the central government under the leadership of Narendra Modi, was trying to address the protracted Naga issue. He reminded that the NSCN (I-M) had already signed framework agreement with Government of India on August 3, 2015 and therefore, appealed to all other groups to initiate talks with the Government of India to come to a respectful solution.

“Naga people have been going through many turmoil all these years. Now it is right time to solve the problem and make Nagaland march with speed for peace and development,” Acharya said. The governor stated that the empowered educated youth, women and men were eagerly waiting for peace and development in the state. He also appealed to all the tribal bodies, Hohos, NGOs, civil society, student bodies and mother’s association to stand united for early and respectful solution.

Three apex tribal bodies – Ao Senden, Lotha Hoho and Sumi Hoho- under the aegis of Central Nagaland Tribes Council(CNTC) had resolved on August 24, 2016 that they would quit the Naga Hoho after expiry of the 30-day deadline if the latter did not revoke its recommendation to the government for recognition of Rongmei as an indigenous tribe of Nagaland.
