 Lotha students’ Union (LSU) conducted an official tour of Lotha villages bordering Assam on August 5 and 6 to monitor and assess the border situation with the anticipated influx of illegal immigrants due to the NRC issue. 

LAU general secretary, Ashanthung Humtso, in a press release said that the team visited Bhandari, Yampha area where a consultative meeting was conducted along with the Lotha frontal organisation of Lotha Lower Range, Ralan Area Lotha Hoho as well as with the students’ union of the area.

Ashanthung Humtso who is in-charge of the issue, stated that, “Lothas have been sharing the longest border with Assam, and there is a critical need for providing security.” He also spoke about the need to safeguard lives for peaceful coexistence.

Humtsoe said the need of the hour was to check border areas where Nagaland currently faced an impending threat of illegal immigrants due to a “deficient and obsolete government system which disables the concerned departments in regulating & monitoring immigration into the state.”

The Lotha Students’ Union while meeting the unions and organization expressed concern for the people in the area and urged them to be more vigilant and observant of any suspicious activities in the Assam-Nagaland border dispute area and report such things immediately to the LSU. 

The LSU also interacted with the police department at the check gates as well as the IRB deployed at Ralan.

LSU said that during the interactions, it learned of the need and urgency of deploying more police officials in the area to strengthen security, and noticed the lack of personnel and officers at Ralan Police station.

Grievances from the people and police forces were heard on-site, and appeals were made to the government to work immediately towards ensuring border security. The LSU also appealed to the government to “work in all seriousness and urgency to build a secure and better future for all Nagas.”
