Angami Youth Organization (AYO) held a discourse on the topic ‘Demographic Threats’ with representatives from all village councils, youth organizations, women organizations, churches and students’ union under Chakhroma area at Jotsoma Community Hall, Kuda Village ‘A’ Khel, here on Saturday.

The discourse, hosted by Kuda Youth Club, had three panellists including Savi Liegise, Kelhouseto Nakhro and Ruokuolhou Angami.

Sharing on the main theme ‘Demographic Threats’ with a slideshow presentation, Savi Liegise pointed out the dangers that illegal Bangladeshi immigrants (IBIs) pose to the State.

He presented the central government’s statistical figures and official documentation and said that like numerous European countries, India was also facing the brunt of illegal immigration which had risen to 20 million with more possibly unaccounted for.

Liegise shared some key responses to this issue including, asking the government to strictly enforce available immigration laws, mass support and cooperation with genuine civil organizations battling the problem, not giving space to illegal immigrants -- residential, commercial or religious -- discouraging womenfolk from marrying IBIs, desisting from undertaking business partnerships with illegal immigrants, discontinuing inducting them into Naga National service and stop protecting or adopting IBIs for monetary favours.

Speaking on the ‘Merits and Demerits of Bengal Frontier Regulation Act, 1873’, Kelhouseto Nakhro said this was one of the most important Acts passed by the British to preserve and protect the identity and culture of the Nagas.

He said Assam Land Revenue Regulation, 1886, was also another important legislation which was passed to ensure that land belonging to the Nagas does not fall into the hands of people from other ethnicities.

Ruokuolhou Angami shared on ‘Angamis on Prioritising Work Culture Responsibilities.’ He said often times Nagas rely too much on other people for a variety of jobs which had led to a lack of responsibility and work culture.

He encouraged the gathered youth to redevelop the work culture that had been prevalent in the past which would help repel the dangers posed by the demographic threats.

The event was chaired by AYO president Neinguvotuo Krose; while the invocation was pronounced by Baptist Revival Church, Kuda Village, church secretary Aneiu Kerhüo.
