Khiamniungan Students’ Union (KSU) and Khiamniungan Menyiu Hoikam (KMH) have strongly condemned the firing incident that occurred at International Trade centre (ITC) Dan, Pangsha under Noklak district on August 15, 2020.

KSU through its media cell asserted that prior to the setting up of army camp at ITC Dan, no such incident had occurred. However, it said that the current location of army camp, which was close to public dwelling, was putting the lives of people at risk. It asserted that ITC Dan was established for socio-economic prosperity of the region and not battle ground to exchange bullets.

KSU said that the incident where a student leader of Pangsha old village was shot dead during the conflict between the Naga nationalist and Assam rifles in early 1990s was still afresh in the minds of the villagers. As regards, KSU has appealed to the Indian Army to set up the camp outside the residential area for public safety. 

KSU stated that it would be compelled to ask the public to vacate ITC Dan if such incidents occurred in the future.

KSU said that creating unwanted situation in its land was a total contempt and disregard to the whole of community. “The beautiful land of Khiamniungan is a God gifted land,” KSU said, adding that there was no place for “vindictive minds” intending to cause bloodshed.

The union also stated that creating such kind of incident during pandemic was strongly objectionable. 

“Instead of shelling mortars and bullets in our land; the Naga nationalist must extend helping hand to the needy,” it said.

KSU said it had no authority to direct the Indian Army and Naga nationalist, but has appealed to all responsible to maintain peace and tranquillity in the region. 

Further, KSU affirmed to protect the peaceful existence of the general public and student community in particular at any cost.

KMH: Khiamniungan Menyiu Hoikam (KMH) condemned the firing incident that took place when the rest of the country was celebrating Independence Day.

In a press release, KMH president Newkhai and general secretary Sichang said that such incident created fear psychosis and disturbed the peaceful environment in the newly upgraded district. 

KMG said that it would “never tolerate” such unwarranted and provoking action that disturbed the very peaceful existence and also threatened the security of the people.

KMH has, therefore, appealed to all the “nation workers” and security forces to refrain from such “unlawful activities”, which led to law and order problem. It also called for honouring the sentiments of the people.

Further, assuring to extend its cooperation and support towards those who advocate peace in society, KMH said that peace was prerequisite for all round development and progress.
