Disconcerted over oil exploration by the ONGC in Aghunaqa area, allegedly without the consent of Nagaland government and without the knowledge of the people living in the area, Aghunaqa Area Students’ Union (AASU) has urged the higher authorities to immediately look into the matter. AASU, in a press note issued Sunday by its president Shikato Yeptho and speaker Hukato Zhimomi objected ONGC’s oil exploration activities in the area, stating that although Haldibari, Rengmapani and Homeland sectors came under the “so called Disputed Area Belt” of the Assam government, the area was completely under the administration of Nagaland government. In this regard, AASU has called upon the responsible authorities for immediate investigation into the matter and put an end to such exploration activities.
