Naga Hoho, Naga Mothers’ Association and Naga Students Federation at a joint consultative meeting on October 19, in Kohima reacted to statements of Thepfulhouvi Solo which appeared in the local media on October 3, 2013 wherein he had purportedly stated that the Naga Hoho, NMA, NSF and NPMHR “could not protect the interest of Naga people”.
While admitting that there could be errors on the part of any organisations or governments, Naga Hoho president Keviletuo Kiewhuo and vice president NSF Joseph Ngouri, said the meeting wanted Thepfulhouvi to bring out in detail “in which way, we could not protect the interest of the Naga people”.
Stating that they appreciated or welcomed any constructive criticism and corrective measures to lead the people forward, the two however asserted that “we shall not accept total condemnation of existing organisations”.
Describing Thepfulhouvi Solo as a responsible citizen, the signatories also hoped he would be able to protect the rights and interests of “the Naga people in totality”. -NPN
