Tikhir Tribal Council (TTC) today urged the state government to first seek “clear-cut information data” for settlement over long-pending issue of disputed Pungro sub-division.
According to TTC president Topan K. Tikhir and joint secretary Mark Murekiu Tikhir Pungro sub-division, inhabited by Makory, Chirr, Tikhir and Longfur, was a “clear manifestation of land and its people.”
Pointing out that no third party can deliver judgment to any dispute or crisis that arise within the jurisdiction unless consulted with the tribes, the TTC said from time immemorial Makory, Chirr, Tikhir and Longfur traditionally bordered with Sangtam tribe in the south – Pungro circle. “Thus, any tribe claiming of land ownership of disputed Pungro can be settled through ancestral genuine history of tribes domiciled at Pungro,” said the signatories, adding no inconsistent history or statement would be accepted.
WYH appeals
Western Yimchungrü Hoho (WYH), while apprising the state government about the displaced Yimchungrü families in Kiphire, Wednesday requested the government to “urgently” initiate “philanthropic” assistance towards those aggrieved families. In a letter to state chief secretary, the WYH information and publicity secretary Mathew K. Janher said “present upheaval” has displaced more than 200 Yimchungrü families at Kiphire town. Also, stating that about 1000 students were displaced, the Hoho said it has greatly affected their career.
