Against the backdrop of reports that the Nepali community in Karbi Anglong district was a party to the threat of a counter-blockade on Nagaland, which was spearhead by the All Assam Manipuri Students’ Union (AAMSU) and Karbi Anglong District Council (KADC), the North Eastern Region Service Nepali Association (NERSNA), Kohima has asserted that the Nepali community would not be a party to such activities that would hamper the age old peaceful relationship with all the neighbouring communities of the region.
NERSNA Kohima, in a joint statement issued by its president Mon Bahadur Sonar and general secretary Anil Chetri accused AAMSU, that it had dragged Nepalis without identifying the Nepali organization as a party to the decision on counter blockage on Nagaland.
The signatories in a statement issued here today, urged upon the Nepali community in Karbi Anglong not to participate in the proposed counter blockade. “We request Nepalis living in Karbi Anglong to rethink that Nepalis are scattered in every place and any involvement by the Nepali community will bring displeasing consequences to the Nepalis residing in other areas and also appeal for peace and harmony in the region”, the released added.
“Nepali Community is a peace loving community and believes in peaceful co-existence with every community” and it “will not be a party to such activities which will hamper the peaceful age old relationship with all the neighbouring communities of the North East,” the NERSNA said.
It may be mentioned that the Karbi based AAMSU along with 12 organizations including the Nepali community had threatened to launch counter blockade on Nagaland by issuing a 100-hour deadline to lift the economic blockade on all Manipur vehicles in Naga areas by the ANSAM and NSF.
