Kohima: The Nagaland government plans to move a resolution in the state assembly opposing the Forest Conservation (Amendment) Act and the planned Uniform Civil Code (UCC).
The assembly session will be held from September 11 to September 14.
Both the Forest Protection (Amendment) Act and the planned Uniform Civil Code (UCC) have already been expressed by the state administration.
State government spokesperson and Parliamentary Affairs and Power Minister KG Kane said the administration had consulted with the state’s leading tribal groups and civil society organizations before deciding on the proposed resolution.
According to Kenye, some Naga civic groups and intellectuals have raised concerns that the Act may violate the unique rights conferred by Article 371A of the Constitution.
Article 371A provides special protection to the Nagas in Nagaland in terms of religious and social practices as well as ownership and transfer of land and resources.
According to him, tribal organizations and civil society during the meeting requested the state administration not to implement these two Acts in the state.
In Nagaland, the BJP is a partner in the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP)-led government.
