Dimapur, August 26: The Lotha Hoho (LH) has decided not to allow immersion of the ashes of Late Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in any part of Wokha jurisdiction.
In a press release, LH chairman Mhao Humtsoe and general secretary Mhondamo Ovung said its decision not to allow immersion of ashes in its jurisdiction was based on the reason that it is neither our cultural practice nor religious belief.
“The decision of the BJP Nagaland Unit to immerse the ashes of Late Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the rivers of Nagaland will be doing it in their own reasons best known to them. They may perform their rite at any part of Nagaland of which we have no say but will not be allowed to be performed in any part of Wokha jurisdiction for the reason that it is neither our cultural practice nor religious belief,” it stated.
Making it clear that it respects BJP as one of the national parties of the country, the various cultures of the country and most of all late Vajpayee, but LH insisted that it does not mean that “we should allow our distinct culture to be diluted.” (Page News Service)
