Making a statement on the “forceful occupation” of Ladaigarh Polling Station (PS) by a platoon of Assam armed police, DC and District Electoral Officer (DC&DEO) Longleng , CK Nihekhu Sema Friday said Assam police have refused to vacate the Government Primary School (GPS) building despite repeated requests by Nagaland. Asserting that occupied Government Primary School (GPS) building was reportedly approved as PS in 1970 or early part of 1971, he said the residents of the Naga village exercised franchise since 1971 parliamentary election. He said no polling could be held on April 16 on account of Assam police ignoring the directives of the Election Commission of India. Nihekhu said the GPS building was constructed at Ladaigarh village by the government of Nagaland in 1980, and subsequent room extension during 2004-05 under Grant in Aid and under SSA. Accusing district administration and police of Sivasagar of occupation of the school building without the permission of the DC Longleng or Nagaland school education director, Nihekhu said it was a clear case of trespass and for which rent would have to be paid to Nagaland.
