NSF has said it took strong exception to the ruling of the Gauhati High Court which had declared blockade of any kind along national highways as “illegal” tantamount to a challenge on the right to life of the people and its directive to the Manipur government to declare ANSAM president David Choro as ‘Wanted’.
NSF vice president Sinhilo Thong and secretary education Ahito Achumi,said the federation which stood for truth and justice also has a high regard for the Gauhati High Court in particular and the rule of law in general.
However, the NSF expressed surprise at the recent order of the Gauhati High Court and opined that as an institution, the court which was supposed to examine the case from both sides before making its judgment “miserably failed” to consider the point of view of the Nagas.
Further, the NSF asked if ongoing agitations were illegal, amounting to challenge to right of life, what about killing of innocent people, injuries to hundreds including women and children and displacing “thousands of Nagas?”
NSF also asked what about the Manipur commandos and Manipur Rifles who randomly fired inside houses of Nagas including barricades erected along the NH 39 and NH 53 to prevent Nagas from moving within their own land and preventing NSF delegates from proceeding beyond Mao gate for Oinam village to hold its federal assembly?
The NSF said when the high court did not examine these points before giving its judgement, it led the federation to believe that such “one sided order will only project the biasness of the court.”
The NSF warned the Manipur government against taking any “provocative” actions at the behest of the court order.
