Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) has reiterated its earlier demand to the state government to revoke the notification that had accorded recognition to the Rongmei tribe as well as the one that constituted a committee to study and recommend on the applications for recognition of tribes in Nagaland.
In a press release, NTC convenor P. Pius Lotha and secretary Theja Therieh said a coordination meeting of the Council was held on June 22 at Hotel Saramati, in which it had resolved to urge the state government “to come clear on the issue with its actions taken and intimate the NTC for clarity on record.”
It also resolved to extend unwavering support/solidarity with ACAUT “in their endeavor to deliver justice and relief to the citizens from the clutches of unscrupulous sections people.”
Further, it extended solidarity with the Rengmas in Karbi Anglong “displaced from their ancestral land” and urged the state government to take up the issue in all seriousness with its counterpart.
NTC, in strongest term, appealed KPLT to withdraw its ultimatum and give peace and harmony a chance. The meeting also resolved to adopt the NTC constitution presented by the committee during the session. NPN
