Naga Council on behalf of the Dimapur citizens has congratulated the officers and the police department for the action taken by the Dimapur district administration with the police department on raiding illegal liquor dens at tin-ali junction near sub-jail Dimapur.
Naga Council general secretary Ntsemo Ngully in a press release stated that although the state was declared a dry state, unfortunately the pronouncement has become a mockery because of those dealing in liquor business. The Naga Council also felt liquor business was thriving due to unchecked border gates adjoining Nagaland and Assam.
According to Naga Council, prior to the amendment of Total Prohibition Act in Nagaland there used to be only one or two liquor shops from Nagaland gate to Bokajan, but within a span of two decades hundreds of liquor shops mushroomed in the state. Stating that there are only three check posts covering the whole border between Dimapur district and Diphu of Karbi Anglong Assam, the Naga Council appealed the Government of Nagaland to take up the matter with their counterpart in Assam.
The Council also appealed to the district administration and police department to check other illegal liquors dens in and around Dimapur city to maintainpeace, social harmony and peaceful law and order situation in Dimapur.
