DIMAPUR — The Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO) and its frontal organisations and tribal bodies, have decided to continue the ‘public emergency’ along with relaxation of certain restrictions as part of its total shutdown in the six eastern districts.

A decision to this effect was taken during an emergency consultative meeting with frontal organisations and tribal bodies at CKS Hall, Tuensang on March 12, as per an update from the ENPO media cell.

During the meeting, the members reviewed the status of the ongoing bandh in Kiphire, Longleng, Mon, Noklak, Shamator and Tuensang districts.

The house emphasised the need to stand in unison in order to achieve the desired goal, the update stated.

ENPO president, Tsapikyu Sangtam, is said to have advised all the tribal leaders and members present to ensure that all the people, irrespective of their political and social affiliations has to be onboard.

This is of primary importance and pre-requisite at this hour, he added.

The members also agreed to further collaborate closely and co-ordinate efforts in ensuring successful implementation of the restrictions imposed under the ‘public emergency,’ to show resentment against the Central Government for not honouring its commitment.

“Considering the concerns of the people, the houses has decided to relax/exempt the following as mentioned herein; public movement with private vehicles, all government and private educational institutions, Power Department, medical emergencies, Fire & Emergency Services, PHED (Domestic lines), banking, postal services and telecommunications, business establishments including private construction,” the update stated.

ENSF issues directive

Meanwhile, the Eastern Nagaland Students’ Federation (ENSF) and its eight federating units issued a directive on Tuesday, asking all the 20 elected representatives of the Eastern areas and the Rajya Sabha MP to reach Tuensang headquarters by noon of March 14.

“The federation further directs all the frontal organisations, tribal bodies, and ENPO officials stationed at Tuensang to restrain from going to their respective tribal headquarters until the MP and the 20 elected members from eastern Nagaland reports at Tuensang as directed,” the directive stated.
