Tenyimi Peoples’ Organisation’s Board of Arbitrators asked to give verdict on land dispute by April 30
Requests Sapo to lift indefinite bandh imposed in its jurisdiction along NH-2
Dimapur, March 30 (EMN): The Tenyimi Peoples’ Organisation’s (TPO) Board of Arbitrators (BOA) has been asked to give its verdict on the land dispute at Kezoltsa/ Kozürü/ Kazing/ Dzükou area on or before April 30 this year.
This was resolved at the presidential council meeting of TPO along with its BOA at Hotel Millenium, Kohima on Tuesday, amid the indefinite bandh imposed by the Southern Angami Public Organisation (Sapo) in its jurisdiction along the NH-2 in connection with the land dispute.
“The house resolved to firmly stand by the Arbitration Undertaking signed in 2017 and honour every clause of the agreement. It also decided to stand by the representations submitted to the Manipur government by the TPO and the three contending parties,” read the press release.
It resolved that the government of Manipur withdraw its armed personnel and stop all activities in the disputed area at the earliest, failing which the TPO and its constituent organisations would initiate its course of action.
The house also decided that TPO and its constituent organisations would organise to reconstruct the demolished Sapo Rest House on April 11 and the 12th, wherein decision on further course of action would be taken in case of Manipur government’s failure to listen to its appeal.
In the light of the decisions taken, the house has appealed to Sapo to lift its indefinite bandh.
It was also decided that the TPO would organise its general body meeting before April 30 this year, for which the Poumai Naga Hoho had agreed to host. In this regard, it requested the Poumai Naga Hoho to firstly communicate with Purul, a Poumai village in Senapati district, for the venue as the village had prepared to host the event before it was called off due to the pandemic situation.
The house also decided that the incumbent TPO officials hold office till the general body meeting and the search committee tables its report.
