State chief minister Neiphiu Rio has assured the timber traders in Nagaland that their grievances would be looked into with regard to alleged “discrimination” in allotment of wagons. The assurance came two days after the Nagaland timber traders’ union (NTTU) submitted a memorandum to chief minister, who met the timber traders Thursday in Dimapur. Through its memorandum, the NTTU had urged chief minister to address the issue of “anomalies of the working system and ill-treatment and discriminations” meted out to its members who were small time tree farmers, timber traders and moulded beat units. The union appealed the chief minister to take stock of the situation in the right perspective and see that its members were not discriminated. Briefing media persons after their meeting with the chief minister, NTTU office bearers said Rio stressed on the importance of co-operation between the timber traders and the forest department for the benefit of all. Rio stated that the two sides should work hand in hand and extend co-operation to each other, they said. The NTTU office bearers also said Rio advised the timber traders in the state to co-operate with the forest department and vice-versa. NTTU thanked the chief minister for giving a patient hearing to their grievances and assuring them of looking into their grievances. Staff Reporter
