State government’s declaration to hold State Road Show in Pungro town, from August 6 to 8, has invited resistance from the United Sangtam Likhum Bumji (USLB), with latter affirming not to allow road show at Pungro town “under any circumstances.” The USLB said it should not be held responsible for “any unfavorable situation arising out of this”. In a memorandum to state chief secretary, through deputy commissioner, Kiphire, the USLB president Serangmong Sangtam objected to government’s decision and said the declaration – to hold road show in Pungro town – was carried out “without considering the gravity of situation of these area”. Stating that it has deeply hurt the sentiments of the Sangtam community, the USLB said the “proposed township” and its adjoining villages such as Pungro village, Old Vongti and New Vongti fell under disputed land as far as the state government was concerned. Pointing out that state government had issued series of orders/notification prohibiting social gathering in any form within the disputed land vide (1) Order No. JUDL/91-92/423 dated Kiphire the 10th July’92 (2) NO. CN/COM (SMTR) 07 dated Kohima the 4th Jan 2007, the USLB said, thus government’s decision to hold road show in Pungro town was a direct violation of state standing order by government itself. They also stated that basing on government order, the ENPO general session and ENSF federal assembly, which was proposed to be held in Pungro town in the past, were not permitted.
