Kohima: The Eastern Naga Peoples’ Organisation (ENPO) has decided to suspend its June 11 decision to abstain from participating in the Independence Day celebration in areas that fall under its jurisdiction.
The apex body of eastern Nagaland said this through its media cell on Monday.
As per reports, the Centre has formally invited ENPO for talks on August 13 to discuss on the issue of a separate statehood demand of ‘Frontier Nagaland’.
Earlier, the Central Executive Council (CEC) during its June 11 meeting at Tuensang, resolved to abstain from participating in the Independence Day celebration if the government of India fails to facilitate the process of the creation of a separate state for Eastern Nagaland before August 10.
Firm on its August 24, 2012 resolution which demanded for the creation of a ‘Frontier Nagaland’, ENPO had been organising several rallies to put up its demand.
