NTC, CNWA welcome NLA resolution to repeal NMA 2001
Dimapur, March 31: The Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has welcomed the resolution of the recently concluded Nagaland Legislative Assembly 2023 to repeal the Nagaland Municipal Act 2001 “in toto”.
The NTC expressed its gratitude to the government for taking up with concern the anomalies in the Nagaland Municipal Act 2001 as has been brought to public domain by the Nagaland Apex Tribes HoHos and Civil Society Organizations.
The legislation to repeal the N M Act 2001 vi-sa-vis ULB election has done much of the damaged control of the protective Art 371A of the Constitution of India, and for smooth administration of Municipal and Town Councils in the state in the long-run, the NTC stated.
It also hoped that the government would consult all concerned stakeholders in its endeavour to enact its own Nagaland Municipal Act, and wished all the best that the new Act that is to be enacted would be free of criticism.
The Central Nagaland Women Association (CNWA) has appreciated the Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) and Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio for repealing the Nagaland Municipal Act, 2001.
In a press release, the CNWA said it supports the significant decision, bearing in mind that the taxes on land and building were clearly in violation of Article 371A of the Indian Constitution.
Looking forward, the CNWA called for expediting the process of the enactment of a new Municipal Act for Nagaland, along with consultations and deliberations with the various stakeholders involved.
CNWA also appealed for conducting the ULB elections at the earliest for the benefit of the society.
