DIMAPUR — The Eastern Nagaland Legislator’s Union (ENLU) has made a fervent appeal to the people of Eastern Nagaland, urging them to participate in the 18th Lok Sabha election.

In a statement on Tuesday, the ENLU, which is made up of the 20 legislators from the eastern region, said that it was mindful of the resentment stemming from the failure to settle the Frontier Nagaland Territory (FNT) issue.

“However, abstention from the Lok Sabha polls would rather hinder the progress of the talks. Since, the current status of FNT has been made known to the people through the Working Paper, let us be pragmatic and insightful in looking forward with good intention beyond April 19, 2024,” it said in the appeal.

Stating that citizens must exercise their duties in order to enjoy their rights, the legislators reiterated the assurance that they would extend all cooperation to the negotiation process once the popular government is formed at the centre.

“We humbly request all the stakeholders not to disrupt this democratic process in the greater interest of our general public,” it added.
