The All Dimasa Students’ Union (ADSU) Karbi Anglong District Committee (KADC) and Dimasa Peoples Council (DPC) have appealed the civil bodies of both the Dimasa and Zeme Naga not to issue provocative statement in the media, saying it would be “like pouring oil in the burning fire.” A press statement issued by Da Vid Thausen on behalf of the three organizations asserted that the current violence in NC Hills was not related to any historic rights or issue of land rights but only few groups of armed militants have been involved in the communal carnage. “The mass people are not involved in this communal flare up. So, we cannot say categorically, communal clash between Zeme and Dimasa,” it said. The three organizations said that the misunderstanding and mistrust have been created by the Black Widow. “Black Widow has not any political or social issue. A few misguided youths cannot represent any community as a whole. The violence is not created by Dimasa community en mass. More than 50 % Dimasas are living outside the NC hills in different districts and state of North East India,” they pointed out. The ADSU, KADC and DPC went on to say that a few armed militants who have no respect on public opinion and no public endorsement on their agenda should not be allowed to flare-up communal mistrust and misunderstanding who have been living as a good neighbors since times immemorial. They called for settlement of any kind of rights in a peaceful and democratic way by sitting across the table. The three bodies opined that both the Dimasas and Zemes should pressurize the state and the central government to protect the innocent people’s lives and properties. “The Dimasa and Zeme of NC Hills are the only hope to stop the violence …. What circumstances may come in NC Hills they have to live together as a good neighbor in the future. Their future and their fate are in their hands,” they added. Meanwhile, the three organizations also we1comed the National Investigation Agency (NIA) team, who were on a mission to unearth financial irregularities in the NCHAC.
