The Confederation of All Nagaland State Services Employees Association (CANSSEA) and Nagaland Airport Contractor Union (NACU), Dimapur, have lauded the district administration for their initiatives in tackling the ‘issues of cement and MS rod’ by the agencies and dealers. CANSSEA Dimapur in a press release issued by its president, S.K Kenye, stated that such timely check of essential commodities whose prices were hiked illegally should be appreciated and supported by all general public, organizations and unions who were the victims of such odd price hikes. CANSSEA Dimapur further thanked DMC and DCC for constituting a committee to check the price hikes.
Meanwhile, in a separate release, Nagaland Airport Contractor’s Union (NACU), has also extended gratitude to Maongwati Aier, DC, Dimapur, and his colleagues as well as the police authority for their timely initiation in checking the hiked prices of cement and MS Rod.
The union in a press release issued by its general secretary, Hovishe Achumi, stated that the dealers usually take their business in their own hand and go by their own wish by rising the rate which it termed as an ‘insult’ to the people and further urged the dealer/agency to immediately stop the practices or to surrender their dealership licence to the local people. It also appealed the ‘national worker/government’ to give their concern into the matter by understanding it as an issue for Naga people instead of ‘rising tax’. NACU further appealed DMC and Chamber of Commerce to insist their duty seriously in the matter.
GB union, Dimapur, also congratulated the DC, Dimapur, in checking of essential commodities whose prices were hiked illegally. Stating that the essential goods were stocked without releasing in the market by stockist, the action of Dimapur DC, Moangwati Aier raiding the godown where cement were priced at Rs.370 per bag from Rs.270 to 290 in the last week, seizing the goods and selling to the public at Rs. 240 per bag was praise worthy by all.
