Accusing state government of neglecting Aqahuto area, the Aqahuto Area Civil Society Organisations have served seven day deadline to the state government with effect from February 13, threatening that failure to comply with their charter of demands they will resort to their own course of action by imposing complete bandhs on all roads in Aqahuto area. 

This was stated in a representation (charter of demands) addressed to chief minister through SDO (C) Dhsnsiripar, signed by Kakiho Achumi Hd GB, president Aqahuto area GB Union; Mughalu Yepthom president Aqahuto Area Sports Association; Sumiholi Swu, president Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho; Ashito Sumi president Aqahuto Area Youth Front and Akai Swu, president Aqahuto Area Students Union. 

On NH129A alignment, the signatories claimed that they have already issued a memorandum to deputy chief minister and minister R&B on February 4 and also Western Sumi Hoho had issued a press statement on February 8, 2021 followed by other four village viz- Razaphe Basa, Vidima, Disaguphu and Mhaikham on February 10. 

But till date, there has been no subsequent action or positive response from the state government, they claimed. 

The signatories stated that the new alignment of NH129A undertaken by NHIDCL was longer by 10 kms and cross no inhabited villages and moreover economic and social activities of the nine village will be affected.

Therefore, they demanded that the new alignment of NH129A be immediately cancelled and bring back to the earlier alignment (Old alignment) for peace and tranquillity. On the boundary issue, the organisations claimed that the absence of proper and definite boundary between Peren and Dimapur led to communal tension from time to time. Despite, two committees formed to address this serious issue – R. Ezong Committee (CNL-22/2/96) and Pangyuh committee in 2019, the reports have not been submitted nor any action have been initiated by the state government.  

It therefore, demanded that the boundary demarcation report be immediately made public.  On the alleged encroachment taking place in the area, the signatories demanded that all encroachers be evicted immediately cautioning that any bloodshed that arise due to non-action from the government, they will not be responsible.  

The signatories also demanded immediate resumption of works on the bridge on the river Disaguphu situated between Shokhuvi village and Pimla village and creation of EAC at Aqahuto.

They also pointed out that Khehoi, Kakiho and A.K. Industrial villages were approved by the state cabinet for recognition and were done accordingly but derecognised. Therefore, demanded that these villages be immediately recognised.

Further claiming that other tribes, which have bought land from Sumi community and set up villagers, have all been recognised, they also demanded immediate recognition of all Sumi villages.
