CNTC blames State Govt. for failing to deliver “equitable distribution & governance”

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 3: The Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has blamed the leadership of the present Government in Nagaland for failing to deliver “equitable distribution and governance”, which has forced the Eastern Nagaland People’s Organization (ENPO) to demand separate statehood and boycotted this year’s Hornbill Festival.
“The elected house including the MLAs of the ENPO areas is responsible for the present embarrassing stalemate. The Government should take the MLAs of ENPO areas into close confidence and bring out policy and programme to provide a clear road map and system of efficient governance”, it said in a statement.
Expressing regret over ENPO not participating in the ongoing Hornbill Festival, the CNTC said the State Government instead of organizing festivals of festivals and becoming an “event management group” should do its duty and take up the genuine needs of the people.
“But for obvious reasons the State Government as the guardian of the State has left the demand of the ENPO in cold storage. Therefore, the State Government should explain why the ENPO started to ask for separate statehood and why it cannot address the issue”, it said.
Also reiterating its stand on early Naga political solution, the CNTC appealed to the Government of India to deliver solution as promised before the State Assembly election. “As Parliament Winter Session is due, CNTC is hopeful that the Naga political issue will be taken up in the Winter Session which will bring fruitful conclusion which indeed is a long cherished dream of all the Nagas”, it added.
