The Konyak Union held an emergency meeting at Konyak Union conference hall in Nagaland’s Mon district on Wednesday.

“The house further resolved to permanently expel those individual(s) filing nomination to participate in the NLA election, 2023 from the Konyak soil and the village of the person filing nomination shall be held solely responsible,” Konyak Union stated in a press release.

It further said, “The Konyak Union has also fully endorsed and empowered the Konyak Nyupu Sheko Khong (KNSK), Konyak Students’ Union (KSU) and Village the Councils to fully implement and act upon the resolution.” The meeting was attended and signed by the chairman of Konyak villages, Apex CSO, Konyak Union Executive Council Members, KU advisory board members, senior leaders and intellectuals.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Wednesday announced dates for assembly polls in the three Northeast states of Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura. Polling for the assembly elections in Meghalaya and Nagaland will be held on February 27.
