PAC: Meanwhile, PAC Dimapur expressed shock and condemned the demand note served on Maruti Arena, Darogapathar, Dimapur, by NSCN (U) and also for harassing the staff of the showroom. PAC reiterated that while the entire nation was on lockdown and where every business had come to a standstill, such action should be condemned by all right thinking citizens. 

PAC pointed out that the establishment had opened just opened for a week and was struggling even to pay the salaries of the staff. It urged upon the district authorities to check all illegal collections and nab those responsible.

DVC:  Darogapathar Village Council (DVC) has vehemently condemned what it described as “inhuman, barbaric and cowardice act of NNPG” cadres, who allegedly demanded “tax” from the proprietor of M/s Progressive Motors Dimapur.

In a press release, DVC chairman Nungtok Meren Jamir and secretary K .Ado Bizo cautioned that the particular faction would be held solely responsible if any untoward incidents occurred to any members of TK Service/Progressive Motors.

DVC also appealed to all responsible citizens to speak out against “such unlawful acts executed by the national workers”. 

Further, the council appealed to the law enforcing agencies to be vigilant and bring those responsible to book and curb all illegal activities at the earliest. 

Meanwhile, DVC has reaffirmed its August 18, 2016 resolutions on ban against any kind of illegal tax collection by individuals or groups. DVC also reaffirmed its earlier stand of “one government, one tax”.
