NFR affected land owners committee (NFRALOC) has issued a two-month ultimatum – w.e.f August 6, 2010 – to the state government demanding it to intimate the railway board for early payment of compensation or face legal action.
This was resolved in a consultative meeting involving the affected land owners of the entire stretch i.e., Dimapur to Zubza, consequent upon state government’s “failure” to initiate compensation process and “non-responsive attitude” towards the cause, the NFRALOC Dimapur sector and Medziphema sector said in a representation to state chief secretary today.
Pointing out that they had agreed to part with their land keeping in view the necessity of development above everything else at the rate prescribed by the state government, the affected land owners said, however, rather than making payment, the chief secretary’s office and the Dimapur district administration started playing “blame game” by citing “unjustified explanation for the unreasonable delay”.
Maintaining that certain villages were also wrongly implicated in the last Assembly session, the NFRALOC said nobody raised an issue for the sake of development. However, they have expressed their displeasure over the state government’s “indifferent attitude” as the sentiments of the land owners have been mocked to a great extent.
The affected land owners said they have learnt from reliable sources that railway board was ready to make payment as soon as it received intimation from the state government. “However, it is evident that the state government has not intimated the railway board as yet,” they stated.
Alleging that there was a “communication lapse” between the state government and the Dimapur district administration, the NFRALOC said it has greatly hindered and delayed the payment process.
In connection with this, they impressed upon the state government that “innocent land owners should not be victimized for no fault of theirs.”
