Last Updated: Wednesday, April 17, 2013 - 14:28

Kohima: Naga Hoho, apex body of the tribal bodies in Nagaland, has appealed to the state government to stop the ongoing exploration of natural resources without the consent of the land owners and the Naga people.

The appeal was made in the Naga Hoho federal assembly where several tribal bodies spoke against the exploration of natural resources in Naga inhabited areas, its Secretary Kenyuseng Tep said in a statement today.

Reaffirming its stand on the right of land ownership, the Hoho appealed to the government to take the land owners and the tribe Hohos into confidence before taking any further action.

The federal assembly was held in Dimapur last week, the statement said.
