Dimapur, May 10: The Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has backed the legitimate protest of Zeliang People’s Organisation (ZPO) on being ignored by the State Government in its proposed consultative meeting with tribal bodies on May 11.
“What has irked the ZPO is that Zeliang tribe which is a recognized constituent tribe in Nagaland is not invited along with the rest of the other Naga tribes to the scheduled consultative meeting, and whereas, Zeliangrong which is not a recognize tribe in Nagaland is invited to represent Zeliang tribe. The action of the state is tantamount to derecognizing of Zeliang tribe and given recognition to the Zeliangrong as a tribe in Nagaland,” said the NTC in a release.
Stating that the action of the State violating its own notified list of scheduled tribes is a matter of grievous concern and has far reaching consequences, the NTC urged the State Government to immediately rectify the erroneous action and uphold the honour and decorum of legitimate right of the Zeliang tribe for all times to come.
