Implement RIIN without further delay: WSH to govt

DIMAPUR, FEB 13 (NPN) | Publish Date: 2/13/2020 1:08:07 PM IST

Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) has urged the state government to implement the Registration of Indigenous Inhabitants of Nagaland (RIIN) at the earliest without, adding that the implementation of Inner Line Permit( ILP) would be meaningless and a futile decree. 

In a statement, WSH media cell stated that since all tribal hohos and mass-based organizations of Nagaland had submitted their views and suggestions for modalities in written and given their green signal to the state government through the Banou Commission, the state government should execute it without any further delay.

While lauding the state government for introduction of ILP in Dimapur district, a long felt demand of all civil societies and the indigenous people of Nagaland, WSH said it expected the Inner Line Permit to be implemented in true letter and spirit. The hoho also said that the exercise should not become some fruitless and an ineffectual legislation in paper only. 

To this, WSH said any sane individual or organization would able to differentiate between Citizenship (Amendment) Act, National Register of Citizen and RIIN. 

“Only those who are anti indigenous inhabitants of Nagaland will oppose RIIN,” the hoho stated. 

Further, WSH warned that it was ready to resort to any form of action deemed fit against those who oppose RIIN. “A handful of vested elements will not be allowed to destroy the future of our indigenous inhabitants,” WSH stated.
