A month after the May 6 incident at Mao Gate, around 500 displaced villagers who were taking shelter at Naga Heritage complex Kisama finally left for their respective homes after a combined service Sunday.
The displaced villagers from Mao Gate and surrounding villagers made their journey back home through the initiatives of the Naga apex organizations including the Naga Hoho, Naga Mothers’ Association and Naga Students’ Federation.
Those who spoke at the service included Niengulo Krome, Convenor Co-ordination Committee of Naga Civil Society, United Naga Council, Samson Remai and Mao Union Kohima. All of them expressed deep gratitude to the Nagaland and different sections of Naga society for showing their unity at the time of need, adding no forces or government could dividen could divide the Nagas.
The formal service was chaired by President NMA, Abeiü Meru. The service was also marked by action songs which were much appreciated by the congregation.
It may be recalled, that following the May 6 incident, several hundred personnel of the Manipur police enforced prohibitory orders under section 144 Cr PC in a bid to prevent NSCN(I-M) general secretary Th.Muivah from entering Manipur since May 2.
There were also allegations of assault on 28 civilians by the police including looting of cash, domestic animals including vegetables.
SAPO grateful
Meanwhile, the Southern Angami Public Organisation(SAPO) has expressed regrets that the Coordination Committee of Naga Civil Societies(CCNCS) and Naga Mothers Association( NMA) who organized Sunday’s function had not included it in the programme.
SAPO informed public not to misunderstand its presence at the function where it was to have highlighted a detailed report of relief and materials received from various sources during the one-month period. It said the detailed report would be available at SAPO office at Jakhama where any individual could cross check information.
SAPO also expressed gratitude to all individuals and organizations for rendering various assistance to the displaced Mao-Naga brothers who had to flee for security reasons. SAPO press secretary Meyiel Naleo said SAPO was entrusted to look after the displaced persons who were initially housed at Khuzam and Kidima villages but later shifted to Naga Heritage village, Kisama.
