CNTC wants ILP panel report tabled in NLA

CNTC wants ILP panel report tabled in NLA

Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) has asked Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) to take up the report of Inner Line Permit (ILP) Committee in the ensuing 13th Assembly session scheduled from February 21 to 23. 

CNTC in a press release pointed out that the problem of illegal immigrants, its magnitude and implications, needed to be taken up with all seriousness, “irrespective of political affiliation or colour”, as it was related to the future of the upcoming Naga generations. 

Pointing out that the issue was most crucial and critical and had long been bothering the Nagas, CNTC demanded that it be taken up without delay as the State had already been swarmed by illegal immigrants from Bangladesh making their way through Assam.

According to the group, the existing ILP system in the State had become almost dysfunctional with no proper data on entry and exit of outsiders in the districts. It said the demand for bringing Dimapur district under the purview of BEFR was genuine as it was a matter of concern for all the Nagas. 

Expressing its appreciation to the ILP Committee for bringing out a comprehensive and detailed report and suggesting solutions to solve the issue of illegal immigrants, CNTC said the unabated influx had not only affected the local economy, but also posed a threat to the security and very existence of the Nagas and their future generations in the State. 

CNCT demanded that the motivating factors and reasons for the influx should be immediately addressed and looked into with long-term solutions. It feared that, with the ongoing rate of influx, the indigenous Naga population would be reduced to a minority in their own land within a short time. 

“Leaders are elected by the people to serve and provide security to their people. So it is their foremost responsibility to take up this serious issue without any delay. The onus now lies with the State government to deliver a lasting and permanent solution to this chronic problem,” it added.
