The Naga Students Federation has urged the Nagaland government to renew its efforts to check the increasing influx in Naga areas bordering Assam while also alleging that the CRPF entrusted with the task of manning the Assam-Nagaland border is biased towards Assam. NSF vice president Charles Lotha in a release said the mushrooming CRPF check gates in the border areas are collecting illegal toll from passenger and goods vehicles from Nagaland, thereby making some of their commanders rich at the expense of poor Naga villagers. The release said Ralan area is one example of government’s apathy where it has failed to take any action. While appreciating the concerns of the state government and the NGOs concerned such as KLRSU towards Nagas living in the Assam-Nagaland border areas, the NSF alleged step motherly treatment to the border area people living in the stretch from Tizit to Peren district. It said at a time when the Assam government is actively pursuing an aggressive border policy with states bordering Assam, inaction of the Nagaland government will lead to unrest in the border and for which it will be held solely responsible.
