The Eastern Naga Student Federation (ENSF) has submitted a memorandum and their findings on the Oting massacre to Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma. 

A ENSF delegation met Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma, who is also the national president of the NPP, late on Tuesday evening at Dimapur in Nagaland. 

Meanwhile, Conrad Sangma has reiterated his stand on the demand for repealing Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). 

“As people of Northeast, we reiterate our demand to repeal AFSPA,” Meghalaya CM and NPP national president Conrad Sangma said in Dimapur.

Later briefing the media at the residence of Abdrew Ahuto, president of the Nagaland unit of NPP, Sangma said his personal stand and that of the NPP for the last 20 years has been against the imposition of the AFSPA in the Northeast. 

He stressed that the Act should be repealed not only in Nagaland but in the entire Northeast region. 

“We want the AFSPA repealed in the entire Northeast as it is not helping the situation in the region and has proved to be counter-productive,” Conrad Sangma said. 

There needs to be trust among all the stakeholders, he added.
