Kohima, May 15 (MExN): A ‘Naga-Asom Dialogue Forum’ will be constituted with 15 representatives each from the two sides. The 30 members- leaders of organisations as well as individuals- will be nominated from Nagaland and Assam states respectively by Naga Hoho and Asom Sahitya Sabha. “In an attempt to strengthen friendship and fraternity between the people of two neighbouring states, the civil societies of Nagaland and Assam have resolved to form a Dialogue Forum comprising adequate and equal representatives from both sides,” stated the P. Chuba Ozukum, Naga Hoho President, in a press release today.
The Forum will work towards “strengthening friendship and fraternity between the people of the two neighbouring states.” It will have joint Convenors, one from each side, and Guwahati-based Nanda Talukdar Foundation (NTF), an NGO, will coordinate between the two Convenors, it was informed.
This was resolved following the 2nd Naga-Asom Round Table held in Kohima on May 13.
