text: News has at last come through from Delhi. Mayang has summoned the N.N.C. to meet at Kohima tomorrow and has ordered 'Mokokchung members to attend without exception'. The Lhota delegates are already on their way and everyone in Wokha is asking what the meeting portends. Have the Mokokchung demands been granted? Will the meeting be asked to ratify the new terms? Are we on the verge of a Naga revolt? No one can say and no one dares to guess.
