The House unanimously resolved to urge the central government to reconsider its decision and abandon the plan of suspending the FMR and fencing the border.

Deputy chief minister Y Patton moved the resolution on the floor of the House on the last day of the fourth session of the 14th Nagaland assembly for consideration and adoption.

The House also resolved to request the Centre to work out regulations for the movement of the people across the border in close consultation with the people inhabiting the border areas, and for suitably bringing in the village council authorities concerned in the entire system of regulations.

As per the resolution, the decision to abrogate the FMR and fence the border will cause immense hardship and inconvenience, and also agony to the Naga people living along the Indo-Myanmar international border areas as the traditional land holding system straddles the international border in many areas and the people have to cross the international border on a daily basis for their normal cultivation activities.

The House also felt that these measures would seriously disrupt the age-old historical, social, tribal, and economic ties of the Naga people living on both sides of the international border.
