Alleging that the issue of illegal settlements and encroachments in the Intangki National Reserve Forest was “undoubtedly” a byproduct of state government’s “inexplicable stand” of allowing migrants from other states and labeling settlers from Nagaland state as encroachers, the GPRN/NSCN Wednesday placed an option before the government to either “evict all or evict none.”
“The Intangki National Reserve Forest is almost wiped out by greedy migrants from other states and it is bizarre that while there are many new settlements inside Intangki Reserve Forest, the state government continue to talk about evicting one single village which has representatives from twelve Naga tribes!,” the GPRN/NSCN stated in a press communiqué released by its MIP.
Further, stating that there was “clear evidence” that illegal occupation of Intangki Reserve Forest was rife.
It added that state government has done “very little” to protect the forest.
Pointing out that every nook and corner of Intangki Reserve Forest could be viewed with the help of Google Earth, the GPRN/NSCN said satellite derived image would clearly show new settlements, and how those people in power continued to play their politics, destroying the reserve forest and sowing hatred and communal seeds in the minds of the people.
The GPRN/NSCN also alleged that once natural forest has been turned into farms belonging to so many officials from Hebron Camp including Hangshi, Raising, Khuyao, Lungalang, Puni and many others.
“GPRN/NSCN is also aware that there are many new villages inside the reserve forest by who do not even speak Nagamese or follow Christianity. While the state government constantly plot to evict Nagas from proper Nagaland state,” the MIP statement said.
Also, stating that dispute between Lilen Kuki village and Beisumpuikam village was settled by DC Kohima on September 12, 1985, the GPRN/NSCN said it clearly indicate that Beisumpuikam was an illegal settlement.
“The High court double bench confirmed this judgment as per court order dt 02/05/94,” the MIP said.
