DIMAPUR — The Kohima Village Youth Organisation (KVYO) has stated that any guidelines restricting citizens from expressing their democratic rights, apart from those outlined in the clean election campaign and those prescribed under the Nagaland Municipal Act 2023, as well as the guidelines provided by the State Election Commission, Nagaland, will be considered anti-people.

In a press release, KVYO said that the sole responsibility for such restrictions will be borne by the concerned wards.

It stated that it affirms its support for upholding the clarification received from the state government and the state election commission in Nagaland that clearly states that any person who is a registered elector of a ward in a municipal or town council is eligible to contest from any ward of that particular municipal or town council.

The organisation, while appreciating the steadfastness of the wards under All Kohima Municipal Ward Panchayat (AKMWP) for clean elections and upholding Kohima Village Council’s resolution for clean election, ‘one man, one vote’, stated that it is committed to upholding the democratic rights of every citizen for the upcoming urban local body (ULB) elections to be held on June 26.

It further requested the panchayats under AKMWP to serve as beacons of hope and justice for the younger generation, emphasising the importance of remaining apolitical.
