Dimapur, November 11: Expressing utter shock at the State Government's decision to shift the Hornbill Rock Festival to Dimapur citing security reasons, the Kohima Village Youth Organization (KVYO) has threatened to ban all Hornbill functions in Kohima city during the celebration.

In a press release, the KVYO reminded that the Hornbill Festival functions had been confined only in Kohima without any security threat for years, and wanted to know where security lapses had occurred during the night Hornbill Festival at any venue.

Strongly warning the State Government against any plan to shift the Hornbill Rock Festival out of Kohima "as it has deeply hurt the denizens of Kohima city", the KVYO said Kohima city belongs to the Naga people, though Kohima village has graciously donated its land for the state capital city.

"KVYO is not opposed of spreading Hornbill festival to other districts , but government citing security reasons is unreasonable and unbecoming of a state government who run the affairs of the day to day," it said.

The KVYO said if the State Government shifts the venue from Kohima city, it would have no choice but to ban all the night activities in Kohima city during the Hornbill Festival from December 1 to 10. (Page News Service)
