Kohima, Jan 23: The Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO) has decided to participate in the upcoming Nagaland assembly polls.

Earlier, ENPO, the apex tribal organisation of eastern Nagaland, had decided to abstain from assembly polls if its demand for a separate state was not fulfilled before the polls.

On January 22, the ENPO held an emergency meeting, where it decided to resolve to participate in the assembly polls. Along with ENPO, several other Naga organisations had decided to refrain from participating in Nagaland assembly polls but it seems that the issue has been solved.

Meanwhile, the major political parties of Nagaland have geared up and are organising political rallies to ‘woo’ voters.

Several organisations and civil society groups have urged the Central government to solve the Naga political issue before the assembly polls. Recently, the members of ENPO met the MHA officials led by A K Mishra.

On the other hand, Konyak Union (KU) has decided to refrain from participating in the assembly polls. The union resolved to permanently expel those individual filing nominations to participate in election from the Konyak soil.

Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio recently said that the state government cannot allow any constitutional crisis.

In 2018, when the civil societies and all political parties, including the BJP, unequivocally demanded a solution before election, the BJP filed nominations with the slogan “Election for solution”.

Nagaland has 60 assembly seats and Eastern Nagaland accounts for 20 seats. Polls will take place in Nagaland on February 27.
