Bring Dimapur under ILP preview: WSH

DIMAPUR, AUG 3 (NPN): | Publish Date: 8/4/2018 12:00:27 AM IST

Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) has demanded that Dimapur district be brought under the purview of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) without any further delay.

Appreciating the state government for stepping up its vigil along the highways and entry points in the wake of draft NRC publication, the WSH has, however, called for conducting NRC-like exercise in Nagaland, saying influx of outsiders has reached an alarming proportion posing a very serious risk to “our small indigenous population.”

In a press note, WSH general secretary, Vikato K. Achumi, suggested setting up check posts at various stretches with adequate police personnel in the border areas. It also demanded brining back ILP gate to the earlier New Field check gate and the Dillai gate.  Asserting that the plain areas of Dimapur have been swarmed with the influx of illegal immigrants, WSHsaid the government must take further steps to address the issue.

Further, WSH suggested having proper co-ordination and an appropriate mechanism to address the issue of illegal immigrants, which it said was a complex issue and the government cannot do alone without the help of civil society organisations and the public and vice-versa.

According to the hoho, the time has come for the government, every Naga tribal hoho and the people to join hands and fight menace of illegal immigrants. “Enough crimes like rape, kidnap and intimidation against us Nagas have been committed which should be an enough eye-opener for all of us and the more we delay this problem the more serious and riskier it is becoming for us,” WSH stated.

WSH also stressed that Nagas needed a similar movement like the one initiated by Ao Students Union (AKM) “Survival Mokokchung” to check influx of the illegal immigrants. WSH lauded the Aos for their farsightedness and wisdom in understanding and averting the danger much ahead before any Naga tribes realized it.

Alleging that recruiting non-Nagas by “some NPGs” into their folds and arming them with weapons was jeopardizing integrity and sanctity of the Naga Movement, the hoho described the act as “detestable and anti-Naga” that was detrimental to future generations.

Meanwhile, WSH has informed the Western Sumi Youth Front (WSYF) and the Western Sumi Students Union (WSSU) to remain alert and vigilant on the influx of illegal immigrants all the areas and villages.
