Congress calls to reconsider demand of separate state

Kohima, Dec 30 The Congress here today asked the Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation to reconsider their demand for a separate frontier state, even as it described the tribal body’s grievances over lack of development in four border districts as “legitimate”.

NPCC president S I Jamir said that at a time when all Nagas have expressed willingness to reconcile with one another and unite for a solution to the Naga political conflict, the demand for a new state is uncalled for.

The ENPO, representing six Naga tribes, last month met Union Home Minister P Chidambaram in support of their demand for creation of ‘Frontier Nagaland’ comprising four border districts of Mon, Tuensang, Kiphire and Longleng, asserting that successive governments in Kohima had neglected the region.

The body also submitted a memorandum to the Prime Minister in this regard recently.CourtesyPTI
