Dimapur, September 10: The Lotha Hoho has reaffirmed its dissociation from the Naga Hoho since 2008 and stated that it will continue to remain so.
In a press release, the LH also reminded the Naga Hoho that the Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC), of which the LH is a constituent unit, had also dissociated from the Naga Hoho, vide media publication of 1st September 2016.
The LH also condemned the action of Mhonchumo Mozhui, who it said is the “self styled” cultural and customary affairs of Naga Hoho (NH) and asked him to immediately demit his post in Naga Hoho lest the Lotha Hoho take disciplinary action against him.
“The Lotha Hoho is surprised to note that the Naga Hoho is still unaware of the fact of Lotha Hoho dissociation from the Naga Hoho since 2008. This fact had been reaffirmed by the LH and published in all local media on the 6th September 2016. Hence the Lotha Hoho will not recognise any Lotha individual who may hold any official post or organisation or individual who may attend any programme/meeting of the NH; but such an individual or organisation is deemed as self-styled and illegal and anti Lotha,” it added.
