First Published: 4th December, 2022 18:38 IST

The meeting between the Eastern Nagaland People's Organisation or ENPO talk team with Union Home Minister Amit Shah has been postponed.

The meet which was set to be held yesterday (Dec 3) was postponed as Home Minister Shah was pre-occupied due to the ongoing Assembly elections in Gujarat. As per sources, the meeting is now likely to be held today or after the last phase of Gujarat polls tomorrow, Dec 5.

It may be mentioned that the 11-member ENPO delegation which includes the talk team members have been camping in New Delhi since Thursday for the crucial meet. Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio had also landed in the national capital yesterday afternoon for the meeting.

The ENPO delegation was all set to meet Union Home Minister Shah to discuss their demand for a separate state – Frontier Nagaland.

The ENPO which represents 7 tribes of 6 eastern districts of Nagaland has been demanding a separate Frontier Nagaland state since 2010 over alleged lack of development in the area.
