Drawing attention of all Naga public to “Intanki Forest Reserve” issue, the NSCN (I-M) Monday maintained its stand “crystal clear” stating already declared “Intanki National Park” belonged to “Naga Nation” as a whole and that nobody; tribe or community can claim the ownership of it in any respect. NSCN (I-M) though a release issued by its MIP said any element whether tribe, community, society, group or “National Worker” that encroaches the demarcated reserve forest would be treated as illegal “encroachers” and would not be tolerated, but “certainly” attract stringent action in accordance with the standing “Azha of the GPRN.” It reiterated that a “Joint Council Meeting” under the “Chairmanship of Collective Leadership, GPRN,” dated July 6, 2007 had issued an order vide “No. 36-03/PROH/MKA-2007, dated July 10, 2007, prohibiting tracking, hunting, fishing, cutting fire-wood, cultivation of oil seed or any related activities causing deforestation of “Intanki National Park”, followed by pronouncement of a directive by the “Collective Leadership” dated September 25, 2007, prohibiting the same and declaring “Intanki Reserve Forest as National property and treasure.” Emphasizing that the site has tremendous economical, geographical, historical and cultural importance, the NSCN (I-M) said its protection was of utmost priority for Naga generations to come. It forewarned that all the “new immigrants or encroachers” would be evicted without any further warning with necessary punishment as deem fit by the GPRN. In connection with this, the “GPRN” sought cooperation from all responsible to protect and preserve this site from destruction, adding that it was the only treasure of the Nagas having great potentials to become a tourist hot-spot. The NSCN (I-M) also maintained that the action of “Naga Army” on June 16 was just a “noble and faithful job” executed for future generations as per standing “Azha of the Collective Leadership.” Meanwhile, it also refuted that “no NSCN/GPRN leader has even an inch of land within the parameter of Intanki Reserve Forest as misgivingly alleged by some vested destructive elements at the cost of the Nation.” Further, the NSCN (I-M) underlined that intentional encroachers should rather be punished for not abiding with the law of the land.
