The Naga Hoho has questioned Assam government as well as the Indian Security Forces’ credibility in controlling the continuous and unabated violence unleashed by the DHD (J) against Zeme Nagas in NC Hills. It asked as to why the situation could not be brought under control for such a long period in spite of heavy deployment of security forces in the violence torn areas. Naga Hoho president, Keviletuo Kiewhuo and general secretary, P. Chuba Ozukum in a joint statement said that its executive council meeting held Friday at Kohima deliberated on the various social and political issues with particular reference to intrusion at Intangki National Park, ethnic cleansing vis-à-vis killing of Zeme Nagas in NC Hills and reconciliation process among the Naga political groups. It said that the meeting seriously viewed the serial killing of innocent Nagas and burning down of houses under the guise of “Dimasaland” during the past few months and described the aggression as “absolute infringement and denial of basic fundamental rights of every individual which is intolerable in this contemporary world.” The Naga Hoho also vehemently denounced the escalation of violence and carnage meted out to the Nagas by DHD militants on June 16 where 15 innocent Nagas including minors were killed and houses razed. It said the incident was another violation of basic human rights which deserved highest condemnation from all walks of life. Meanwhile, the Naga Hoho informed that it would formulate strategies towards organizing a protest rally in Nagaland in association with the Dimasas in search for peaceful co-existence and brotherhood. NSF, AASU to visit NC Hills Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) will be visiting the violence affected NC Hills on June 23. This was informed by the NSF President through the phone. He said both the unions were taking initiatives to normalize situation in the area and informed that North East Students’ Organization (NESO) has given full support in this regard. The president also said that both the NSF and AASU would do their ‘home works’ if the violence was communal in nature. Incase, Dimasa militants groups are involved then AASU will talk with them and NSF will do the same if Naga underground groups were involved, he added. The NSF president said that purpose of visit was only a peace mission. All federating unit presidents have been invited to join the NSF executive members for the visit. The violence in NC Hills has so far claimed the lives of more than fifty people where armed militants have been targeting innocent villagers and trains.
