Rengma Hoho reiterates demand to make Tseminyu a district


Dimapur, November 13: The Rengma Hoho had its general session on November 9 at its head quarter Tseminyu and reiterated its stand for demand of Tseminyu district.
It appealed to the state government to consider its demand at the earliest.
The Rengma Hoho said that the demand for Tseminyu to become a district has been long overdue and therefore the state government should consider it respecting their rights.
The Hoho felt the Rengmas were neglected since the inception of the statehood and has been sidelined from all reforms – administratively, economically and on decisions of the government, Rengmas are being hit by injustice in every successive government decision since statehood was granted.
The Rengma Hoho reminded the government that whatever status of the Nagas is today and all fruition of development enjoying by the citizens, Rengmas have its contribution in it.
Stating that Rengmas should be given equal respect like any other tribe and should be allowed to grow and develop on the same foot of others, the Hoho said Nagas cannot grow sensibly until and unless justice is delivered equally for a comprehensive growth for a vibrant society.
It said Tseminyu district is a legitimate right of the Rengmas and they believed that the government is fully aware that the Rengmas were in a disadvantage for too long.
Expressing full confidence on the PDA Government under the leadership of Neiphio Rio, it hoped that the demand of the Rengma for Tseminyu District will be granted without further delay.
The Hoho request MLAs irrespective of political parties to consciously support the demand of the Rengmas.
