Naga Hoho Arunachal calls for unity
Dimapur, Aug. 26 (EMN): The Naga Hoho of Arunachal Pradesh has called upon the Naga people to stand with Naga Hoho (parent body) to realise the peace accord in progress.
An update from the Hoho said, “The Naga Hoho was formed by the Naga people on the foundation of tribes Hoho with an objective to uphold solidarity, rebuilt Naga family to facilitate settlement of Naga issue, to protect Naga system/tradition and to promote social, culture, economic and political heritage on March 11 and 12th, 1998 session at Zunheboto.
“Since then, it has played an immense role in resolving conflict situations amongst different factions of the Nagas. It played an important role in expediting the peace process between govt. of India and the NSCN. The Hoho believed that all settlements should be inclusive and all the different Naga underground factions by playing the role of facilitator and adopted various measures to achieve the goal despite the fact that Naga Hoho was not a party of the peace talk.
“The Hoho ensured safety of all Nagas irrespective of their tribes, councils or religion brought into one Naga unity, initiating the reconciliation process to unite the 39 Naga tribes. It has also initiated peace talks and dialogues with the states of Assam and Manipur and has proposed to visit Arunachal Pradesh.
“We believe the strength of the Naga Hoho is derived from the strength of the tribes of Hoho. Therefore, the Naga Hoho tribes should play a meaningful role in strengthening the Naga Hoho, particularly in their effort towards reconciliation without boundary.
“During this crucial period, when the final peace accord is at the final stage, we urge all the tribes of Hoho, civil societies and the Naga people as a whole to support the Naga Hoho. The Nagas of Arunachal will continue to support Naga Hoho to bring peace and final resolution between the govt. of India and NSCN (IM) and 7 NNPGs”, it read.
