Eastern Naga Students’ Federation (ENSF), pointing out that Eastern Nagaland does not have any inter-district check post set up at present, has appealed to the government to set up an Inter-District Check Post immediately, along with CCTV, to monitor the movement of unknown persons.

A press release issued by ENSF president, Sepili Sangtam and social and cultural secretary, Luntsuba Merr stated that the immediate response and efficient measures taken up by the district administrations to counter/prevent the entry of illegal immigrants in the aftermath of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) drive in Assam was praiseworthy and appreciated. According to the release, the federation had been working tirelessly to check the influx of illegal Immigrants and with the publishing of the final draft of the NRC, it said, all stake holders should come together for the future of the Nagas.

The federation endorsed and empowered all its federating units -- Konyak Students’ Union, (KSU), CCSU, YAA, USCC, PSC and KSU -- to monitor and coordinate with the District Administration for effective implementation and execution of the same. It also directed all its federating units to immediately cross check all the Non-Local Registration Card (NLRC) holders with ILP to verify genuine ILP holders.

The ENSF also appealed to the District Administrations to suspend issuing fresh ILP, except renewing them, in order to curb illegal immigration. It also asked that a separate ILP registrar cell be maintained. The federation further sought to make it clear that it was not looking to harass any genuine Indian citizens but only to check influx of illegal immigrants in the interests of security and survival.

The Nagas should be “ever ready to defend its land, rich culture and traditions” it stated. Eastern Nagaland in particular has been and is a safe corridor, ENSF said and opined that it required continuous protection, calling for practical and effective governmental response before it became a state-wide problem.

Citing these reasons and circumstances, ENSF strongly appealed to the district administrations and the government to immediately initiate protective mechanisms.

It also expressed appreciation for the district administrations of Mon, Tuensang, Kiphire and Longleng for their efforts on the issue of illegal immigrants in Eastern Nagaland and called upon its six federating tribal units to assist and monitor the district administration within the Eastern jurisdiction.
