If any untoward incident occurs on any community member in connection with the Naga political solution, we’ll initiate appropriate action, says the Lotha apex body
Kohima: The Lotha Hoho on Wednesday requested the government of India (GoI) and the negotiating parties to come to a peaceful solution at an early date, adding that it “does not object to the Framework Agreement between the Govt of India and the NSCN/GPRN and also on the agreed points between the Govt of India and the Working Committee of the NNPGs”.
Convened by the Lotha Hoho, the general meeting was held at the Public Ground in Wokha town with over 5,000 members in attendance from all over Nagaland.
The Lotha general public, through the meeting, "resolved to stand by the decision/resolution of the 14 Naga tribes of Nagaland that was adopted on 22nd October 2019 at Kohima".
A statement from the Hoho with S Abenthung Ngullie, general secretary, as signatory, said that at a public meeting convened by the Hoho, it resolved that "if any untoward incident occurs, on any Lotha Hoho member or Lotha Individual, in connection with the Naga political solution, the Lotha general public, through the Lotha Hoho will initiate appropriate action against the individual/group responsible" and that the "family members of any individual involved in any untoward incident will also be held accountable".
“The Lotha general public resolved that Lotha area will not be used as a battleground/ killing field for any individual/ groups. Any individual/ groups going against the wishes of the general public will face the action of the Lotha general public,” the statement said.
It further denounced the self-styled leadership of "Sulanthung Humtsoe and his self-created organisation" and warned Humtsoe to "immediately stop his mischievous anti- Lotha activities”.
