Expressing concern over the situation in Kiphire district over dispute between Sangtams and Yinchungrüs, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee(NPCC) attacked the DAN government for “fuelling the tribal discord”.
NPCC media cell chairman Dr. Hoshi pointed out that the two tribes were allegedly “forced to engage in tribal feud much against their wishes” and held the proposed road show at Pungro town, to coincide with the Medemneo festival of the Yimchungrüs as being the “ignition point”. “No doubt, the DAN Govt. had called off the proposed road-show but it had sown the spirit of distrust and suspicion between the two tribes,” he said.
He blamed the DAN government for failing to take “timely action to restore confidence building measures” despite knowing the mounting tension between the two tribes. Hoshi opined that had the DAN government taken adequate and timely measures, such an ugly situation could have been avoided.
While condemning the “mishandling” of the issue, the NPCC appealed to both the Sangtams and Yimchungrüs to maintain peace and uphold the spirit of harmonious co-existence in the larger interest of all people living in those two towns. The NPCC also appealed to all responsible bodies, representing two tribes, to desist from all activities that could further escalate the situation.
Further, the NPCC also urged leaders of both the contending parties to sit across the table and sort out their differences through mutual trust and patience.
The NPCC also demanded that the state government do more than just leaving the matter at the hands of district administration.
