Broaching the long-running land encroachment issue of Intangki National Park and voicing concern that the area’s ecosystem was being threatened in the process, Tenyimi People’s Organization (TPO) has appealed to all Nagas to rise to the challenge of restoring the integrity of the park in all respects.
A TPO statement issued here Sunday said the challenge was an “inescapable moral obligation of today’s Nagas” which had to be achieved without delay in order to ensure environmental security and general well-being of future generations. “By virtue of the Park being an established composite ecosystem, Nagas must see it as their privileged responsibility to preserve it as a small but vital part of the larger ‘Lung of Mankind’,” the statement said. TPO asserted that since the “priceless heritage” (Intangki National Park) was given to all Nagas by elders of Besumpui village of Zeliangrong people, to assault the “sacred gift” was “illegal, immoral and unworthy of our society.”
Maintaining that issues pertaining to the Park was known to all, TPO stated the time had come when “what is best in all of us” should prevail, and tampering with sensitive ecosystem be stopped.
TPO said people should to understand that “fraudulent reasoning and excuses” used to justify the actions could not stand the scrutiny of “an aroused public” and inevitable judicial intervention. TPO stated if all Nagas acted together, it would signify their rising to accept shared responsibilities expected of a people to meet challenges facing them.
The statement was jointly issued by TPO president Z.M. Sekhose, general secretary Benjamin Lorin, TPO legal cell convener Khupo Kezo, legal cell advisor K. Seyie, and TPO trip to Delhi team leader Niketu Iralu.
