The Nagaland Cabinet held a meeting on Thursday where it discussed the issues relating to the Eastern Nagaland including the abrogation of Free Movement Regime (FMR) along the border with Myanmar.

Addressing a press conference after the meeting, Spokesperson of Nagaland Government and Minister for Power, K G Kenye communicated that the Cabinet has urged the non-governmental organisations to exercise patience on the FMR.

Kenye explained that the Nagaland State Assembly had already passed the resolution against the scrapping of FMR and had also requested Centre to reconsider its decision which it has also assured to reconsider. Therefore, “NGOs are requested to have patience till Govt. of India takes a considered decision in this regard”, the Cabinet stated.

The Union Minister of Home Affairs had announced on 8th February 2024 that MHA has recommended immediate suspension of the FMR between India and Myanmar.

On 1 March 2024, the Nagaland Assembly unanimously passed a resolution to appeal to Centre to reconsider its decision to abrogate the FMR and to fence the Indo-Myanmar border.
