Pointing out that it was “not wise” on the part of the Nagaland government to withdraw border magistrates at Homeland, Haldibari and Uriamghat, especially when the government of Assam was making statements and taking measures to strengthen their policy on Assam-Nagaland border issue, the Western Sumi Kukami Hoho (WSKH) has appealed the state government to immediately redeploy Border Magistrates at these border areas. The WSKH president, Apeto Assumi in a press statement reminded that Assam chief minister, Tarun Gogoi on July 20, during a debate in the assembly had said his government would take strong stand on Nagaland border encroachment. The WSKH rued that the Nagaland government instead of taking stronger measureshad removed officers posted in the three border areas and gave the charges of the three places to a single EAC who was also holding the charge of EAC Niuland. The Hoho opined that each border magistrate shouldered immense responsibility of maintaining law and order in their respective border areas and asked how a single EAC could handle the pressure of three places while also having additional charge. It maintained that the government of Nagaland, by removing border magistrates had demonstrated its “least botheration” for the people living in border areas. The WSKH recalled that the previous NAP camp which was stationed at Rengmapani was also removed by the state government and never reinstated, while the Assam government hardened its stand on Assam-Nagaland border issue. However, after many years and much pressure from the public, the Nagaland government has posted a company of NAP at Niuland, it added.
