Dhansiripar subdivision public organisation (DSPO) has appealed to the responsible authority to intervene in the current dispute between two groups – one living under Dhansiripar sub-division, Dimapur and the other living under Jalukie sub-division, Peren.
A statement issued by DSPO president Vizheto Kiho said the state government had constituted a committee in the year 2000 to carry out demarcation of inter-district boundary between Peren district and Dimapur district and accordingly the land and record survey department executed the work by way of tracing the map of the concerned area.
Besides this committee, the chairman issued a notification to all parties for submission of documents within November 23, 2000, the DSPO president said.
As desired by the committee three organisations – Aqhahuto area public union, Zeliang Baudi (Hoho) and northern Zemi area public organisation – submitted their representations/documents to the committee chairman.
However, he said the notification from the government side did not indicate any sign of the state committee taking follow-up actions to sustain the state government’s enactment.
The DSPO regretted that this time, people residing at the disputed area were openly “unbridled and without knowing that they are violating the state government’s notification or that there is the district boundary demarcation already in existence.”
Stating that at this juncture, the youth from both sides appeared to be prepared to meet any consequences, the DSPO urged the authority responsible to intervene and bring the situation to normal in both the areas.
