DIMAPUR, SEP 5 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/5/2018 12:26:38 PM IST

Appreciating the initiative of setting a daily local organic market under the aegis of Farmer Producer Organisation (FPO) at Supermarket (Naga Shopping Arcade) here, ACAUT urged the State government to monitor and extend all possible help to the farmers and local vendors. It also appealed to all citizens of Dimapur to support and patronise the local market.

In a press release issued by its media cell, ACAUT said it would be a huge boost not only for farmers, but also go a long way in boosting the State’s economy. ACAUT also appreciated the coming together of horticulture department, Development Authority of Nagaland and State Cooperative Bank in making the much-needed exclusive local market possible.

According to ACAUT, economic independence was paramount for a nation’s dignity and survival, adding that this realisation had made the six NNPGs to declare their historic resolve on August 23, 2017 to exempt Naga entrepreneurs from taxation and usher in economic growth of sustenance and prosperity. 

ACAUT also affirmed to stand with Public Action Committee convener Vekhosayi Nyekha’s declaration of the market as “tax free zone”. 

Mentioning that this was a first-of-its-kind initiative as earlier markets were controlled by outsiders and syndicates, ACAUT remarked that this daily local market was the answer for Naga economy. 

Warning that unscrupulous elements or organisations could try to dampen this “positive initiative”, the organisation urged the police department to deal with such elements swiftly with an iron fist, while ensuring ample security in the market area.
