Tobu-Mopong Public Forum appeals to retain EAC Mopong
Dimapur, Aug. 10 (EMN): Tobu-Mopong Public Forum (TMPF) has called for retention of EAC Mopong under ADC Tobu in Mon district before August 13, failing which it cautioned that the civil society organisations in Tobu sub-division would have no other option but stand in solidarity to the call made by the forum adding it would not be held responsible for any untoward incidents that might arise out of the issue.
The forum’s press release issued by its media cell claimed that all necessary documents stating the aspiration of Tobu and Mopong public by both administrative officers and civil societies have been submitted to the state government time and again since the year 2014 when Mopong EAC Hq was transferred under SDO (Civil) Angjangyang without consulting the public of both Tobu and Mopong.
It has referred to the Home Commissioner’s notification dated January 20, 2020, wherein a committee for reversion of Mopong EAC headquarters from Angjangyang SDO (C) sub-division to ADC Tobu sub-division was constituted under the chairmanship of Commissioner of Nagaland along with the Commissioner and Secretary of P&AR as the member secretary, secretary of Home (GAB) and the deputy commissioner of Mon as members.
It added that a meeting was convened by the chairman of the reversion committee at the Commissioner’s office chamber on February 4, 2020, where all the apex organisations from Tobu, Mopong and Angjangyang were invited to give their honest statement so that decision could be made after taking the views and opinion raised by civil society organisations in consideration.

It, therefore, sought the intervention of the state government for retention of Mopong EAC under ADC Tobu administration before August 13. It cautioned that failing to paid heed to its demand would compel the CSOs under Tobu to stand in solidarity with the Mopong-Hongkong Public Forum for action adding it would not be held responsible for any untoward incidents that might arise out of the issue.
