DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 2: The Naga Hoho has condemned the statement made by the Governor, RN Ravi on the eve of 58th Statehood Day of Nagaland, particularly his statement “glorifying the controversial Naga Peoples’ Convention (NPC) and the creation of controversial statehood.”
“The Naga Hoho cannot support such abusive statement from the interlocutor and therefore we out rightly condemn the statement made by him,” said NH president HK Zhimomi and general secretary K Elu Ndang in a statement.
“We had the notion that Mr Ravi was unlike other interlocutors in the past and had great hope that during his tenure something could be worked out and he had wisely understood the Naga political problem and its history of more than seventy years. We never expected such antagonistic statement from a brilliant, intelligent and self-respecting Interlocutor who is supposed to be a harbinger of peace. Regrettably, RN Ravi’s entire utterances are to create division among the Nagas in line with regional and artificial territory,” it said. (Full Text )
