Kohima, August 6: Following the abolition of Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, there have been apprehensions in Nagaland about the possibilities of a similar action against its special provisions that are enshrined in Article 371A.
Rejecting such speculations, RN Ravi, the newly appointed governor of Nagaland, on Tuesday assured people that the Centre will not revoke Article 371(A) from the state.
I would like to categorically assure you all that you do not have to worry at all. Article 371(A) is a solemn commitment to the People of Nagaland. It is a sacred commitment,” Ravi said in a statement.
“We are earnestly working to happily conclude the ongoing political process which is at a very advanced stage,” he added.
Most of the states of North East that have been accorded special provisions under Article 371 and the special status aims to preserve their tribal culture.
