Kohima, March 20: After thorough deliberations concerning the Indian Government’s failure to fulfill its commitment to establish the Frontier Nagaland Territory before the Model Code of Conduct for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Eastern Nagaland Public Meeting (ENPO) reached several resolutions.

The Union Home Minister purportedly pledged this creation on December 7, 2023.

The assembly reaffirmed its support for the Chenmoho Resolution passed on February 23, 2024.

According to this resolution, the citizens of Eastern Nagaland are urged to abstain from participating in any central or state elections and refrain from voting due to the government’s inability to establish the Frontier Nagaland Territory.

ENPO has been entrusted with devising strategies for effectively implementing this public mandate.
