The CNTC also resolved to demand the state government to expedite the amendment of the Nagaland Municipal Act 2001 taking into account the views and suggestions of the tribes’ hohos and civil societies as invited by the state government.
The CNTC said it still stands strong against any type of reservation policy in local body’s elections but supports women nominees chosen from various backgrounds like state/national awardees, expertise and luminaries of different backgrounds through a committee.
The CNTC firmly opposed any taxes on land and buildings also as it directly infringes the very integral provision given by Article 371A.
