Kohima, August 16: The Eastern Nagaland Peoples’ Organization (ENPO) today reiterated their demand for Frontier Nagaland.
Delivering a speech at the civic reception of newly sworn-in Governor of Nagaland, R N Ravi at NBCC Convention Hall here, ENPO president Kekongchim Yimchungru, by way of clarification, said that the demand for Frontier Nagaland is purely based on “our domestic problems and historical rights with no ill intention to any particular community or group”.
He also requested the non-ENPO tribes to think what would be their reaction if they were in the ENPO position.
“…for ENPO the word Nagaland is so dear to us that we had put forward our demand as “Frontier Nagaland” which clearly signifies that we are still Naga in spite of our demand,” the ENPO president said, adding “what a blessing it would be if we had two Nagaland”.
He appealed to all Naga brothers to remember the people of ENPO in their prayers.
The ENPO president while welcoming Ravi and his wife to the Naga family also tried to persuade the new Governor saying, “We are also hopeful that you will not forget the people of Eastern Nagaland and deliver justice in every aspect who are crying for justice right from the inception of Nagaland State” (sic).
