Nagaland ENSF asks Govt. to convene meet on CAA

Kohima, Feb 22 (UNI) The Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF) has asked the Nagaland Government to call a Consultative Meeting to end the confusion and blame game over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in the interest of Nagas’ future.

In a press release issued by ENSF Vice President Manpang K Wangyen and Assistant General Secretary Khomo P said that it was greatly disturbed at the confusion being created over the Citizenship Amendment Act, the ENSF pointed out that its representatives, along with representatives of the State Government, political parties and other stakeholders, had attended a meeting convened by Union Home Minister Amit Shah at New Delhi on December 3, 2019 over CAA issue.
It claimed that the delegation from the State had unanimously opposed the Act, adding that no party had expressed support to it.

However, on the assurance of the Union home minister that the State would be exempted from the purview of Citizenship Amendment Act by virtue of Inner Line Permit (ILP) notified under the Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation (BEFR) Act, 1873 and the meeting being conducted for a very brief time, the delegation did not had the chance to deliberate on the same.
Being a matured organisation, the federation asserted that it had always maintained its principles and integrity, besides always remaining steadfast in protecting and safeguarding the interest of people, the release said.
