GPRN/NSCN has decided to continue exemption of tax to all entrepreneurs who were in the first year of entrepreneurship for a period of one year. “This is to understand their difficulties as they struggle to find their feet in their respective ventures,” the MIP GPRN/NSCN said. It has informed all new entrepreneurs to contact its competent Chaplee ministry for necessary clarification on the matter.
GPRN/NSCN also clarified that it has not endorsed any of its regional or central authority to pursue tax of ‘Thikadars.’ It said taxation on thikadars was unheard of and therefore anyone enforcing tax on them was “illegal and unacceptable.” The GPRN/NSCN noted that the burden on businessmen and shopkeepers, particularly in Dimapur, was increasingly becoming unbearable. Stating that many anti-social elements were actively involved in extortion and unauthorized taxation in its name, the GPRN/NSCN cautioned such groups and individuals that as and when apprehended, they would be punished in a befitting manner.
Illegal immigrants
Expressing concern over the influx of illegal immigrants in the state, GPRN/NSCN on Sunday said it would identify and record every illegal immigrant family living in Nagaland. “The State Government has become eerily silent on this issue. Sadly, the Naga Hoho, NSF and NPMHR have become caged parrots strung up high with clipped wings knowing nothing about the reality except parroting the lines of their masters at Hebron Camp,” the MIP GPRN/NSCN said.
Describing the influx of Bangladeshis and others from mainland India as a “powder keg which will explode in a decade or so” if the Naga people failed to tackle the “enormous threat” with firmness at the earliest, the MIP said it foresaw the “danger” posed by this alien population and was now setting out to identify and record every illegal immigrant family living in Nagaland.
GPRN/NSCN acknowledged the support and co-operation received so far from different NGOs and civil societies towards flushing out illegal immigrants and further requested Naga landowners to extend their fullest co-operation when its functionaries approached them for statistical reports and other necessary papers of non-Naga tenants and farmers “being harbored”. The MIP also informed its regional authorities not to leave any area or region unchecked and to maintain proper records.
