Dimapur, September 01 (NNN): The Naga Hoho has described the August 31 integration rally in Kohima as �epoch-making event� in the history of Naga people�s cry for justice and freedom where �several thousand� irrespective of arbitrary boundaries and divisions gathered�.

A press release issued by Naga Hoho publicity secretary P Chuba Ozukum said apart from those who attended the rally, thousand others failed to make it to the programme on time after they were held up on their way in places between Khuzama and Mao gate by security forces in the name of frisking.

�This itself shows the insincerity on the part of security forces towards solving the age-old Naga political problem,� the release said.

The Naga Hoho reiterated its commitment to go deeper and draw out a road-map for Naga integration which �we unequivocally feel the foundation for any political settlement�.

It lauded CM Neiphiu Rio, Home Minister Thenucho and their colleagues, Opposition leader I Imkong and his colleagues, Naga MPs, hoho units and civil societies for their contributions towards successful conduct of the rally.
