Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has blamed the leadership of the present Nagaland government for the failure to deliver ‘equitable distribution” and governance while addressing the grievances of the people in Eastern Nagaland.
CNTC Media Cell, in a press release stated that the elected house including the members of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) from the Eastern Nagaland People’s Ooragnisation (ENPO) areas were responsible for the present “embarrassing stalemate”.
“The government should take the ENPO MLAs into close confidence and bring out policy and programme in order to provide a clear road map and system of efficient governance,” read the press release while also stating that the CNTC express “concern and regret” on the ENPO not participating in the ongoing 23rd Hornbill Festival 2022 which according to CNTC is considered as an “international event” where the unity of different tribes of Nagaland state are displayed.
The CNTC media cell, however, said that the ENPO’s Morungs were “closed and empty” which has presented a “different story”, the Nagaland state government instead of organizing the “festival of festivals” thereby becoming as an “event management group” should execute its duty and deliver and take up the genuine needs of the people.
Mentioning that for its obvious reasons, the Nagaland government as the guardian of the state has left the demand of the ENPO in “cold storage”, the CNTC has asked the Nagaland government to explain on “why the ENPO started to ask for separate statehood and why it cannot address the issue?” it also suggested that the Nagaland government address the issue (s) before it gets out of hand.
CNTC also reiterated its stand on early “Naga political solution” while also appealing to the government of India to deliver the “solution” as promised before the assembly election.
As the parliament’s winter session is due, it is hopeful that the vexed “Naga political issue” would be taken up which would bring to a “fruitful conclusion” which is a long cherished dreams of all the Nagas.
