Reacting to news reports regarding the eviction drive and burning of houses inside Intangki National Park that appeared in the local dailies, the Sumi Hoho and Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) has clarified that the “so-called Inavi village” did not exist anymore since the settlers there comprising of many Naga tribes have already changed the nomenclature of the village to “Naga United Village” during the early part of 2008. Sumi Hoho advisor, I. Vitokhe Assumi and WSH president, Hokiye Yepthomi in a joint statement said the settlers, in order to change the nomenclature of the village had consulted various Naga personalities including those in the present government and various Naga tribal bodies. With this clarification, the two organizations also appealed the media to confirm such realities before going into publication. On the question of “encroachers” in the Intangki forest area, they pointed out that the “so-called Beisumpuikam” and the Naga United Village were both encroachers as stated in the State Assembly in March 30, 2007 by the then minister for forest.
