Nagaland Dy CM meets Mizoram CM, united against border fencing

Aizawl: Nagaland’s Deputy Chief Minister, Y. Patton, met with Mizoram’s Chief Minister, Pu Lalduhoma, at his residence today evening. The leaders engaged in a discussion about various topics, including the contentious border issue.

Y. Patton asserted that the Nagas and Mizos share a common ancestry, making the Mizoram Chief Minister a representative for the Naga people as well.

He expressed the Naga people’s disagreement with the closure of the Myanmar-India border, given that a significant portion of the Naga population resides in Myanmar, with their homes and farms straddling the border. He stated that both Nagaland and Mizoram hold the same stance on this issue.

Expressing strong opposition to the border fencing proposal, Y. Patton asserted that it goes against the wishes of the Naga people. He highlighted the complex living arrangements of the Naga people, with many residing on the Myanmar side of the border.

Patton stressed that the Nagas would never accept any proposal for border fencing, and he underlined the unity of the Nagas and the Mizos on this matter.

They also covered topics related to the development of North East states. Y. Patton gifted the Chief Minister traditional Naga attire, weapons, and costumes. The Chief Minister’s wife, Pi Liansailovi, was also present at the meeting.
