Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) has condemned the attack on Inavi/United Naga villages inside Intangki National Park by unidentified armed miscreants on June 30.
Savi Liegise, president, NCD said the incident which resulted in the death of its chairman Inashe and assistant GB Vikeshe Sumi was completely against democratic norms of settling issues, and demanded the miscreants must be hunted down and brought to justice by the Government at the earliest.
Savi also lamented that in spite of law enforcement machineries at the disposal of the government, the particular area has seen recurrence of intermittent tribal and village clashes since a couple of years and yet “the matter was left to simmer without any concrete peace or safety measures”. While appealing to the government to develop fail-proof measures in order to restore peace and normalcy of life, NCD also urged citizens of the locality as well as the Nagas to maintain peace and calm.
Meanwhile NCD has flayed the bomb blast at 3rd mile on June 30 reportedly by some cadres killing one and injuring three. Stating the trend of collection on the pretext of tax has been rampant in Dimapur and was yet to see any solution, NCD stated the victims often has to bear the brunt of the crime while the government and authorities concerned takes the blame of all crime and atrocious acts committed by “so-called freedom workers”.
NCD believed it was time for the entire peace-loving public on the street to rise up to the occasion and at the same time appealed to all Naga national authorities to book any cadres and award the harshest punishment. NCD also called on the government, its administrative machineries and police to coordinate and instill courage, confidence and safety to all business and economic centres.
In the meantime, NCD has called for a special meeting on July 2, 10am at the council office. All executive members have been requested to attend positively as the meting would discuss plans for mass public meeting to call for peace in and around Dimapur.
