DIMAPUR, MAY 22 (NPN) | Publish Date: 5/22/2019 11:30:29 AM IST

Eastern Konyak Union (EKU) Myanmar Wednesday claimed that Tatmadaw (Myanmar military) continued to launch operation in Chen Hoyat forest and paddy fields after bombing and firing at public huts on May 21, 2019.

In a press release, EKU Myanmar general secretary, K Honwang, stated that Myanmar military troops arrived at Hoyat village and sent villagers for carrying their food items and other vegetables from the junction of Monyakshu and Chen Hoyat. However, when some 20 Hoyat villagers were returning, the Indian Army at the border accused them of crossing the border without taking the permission from Indian authority. EKU said 20 villagers were detained from 1pm of May 21 to 4pm of May 22 without any reason. 

Due to the presence of Indian army and Tatmadaw, EKU said the villagers were unable to move freely. The union said that the villagers cannot even go to field for cultivation and move out of the village for their livelihoods.

EKU said while Myanmar military were present at the village of Chen Hoyat and Indian military were stationed along border.

In this regard, the union has urged both the militaries to allow public to move freely and let them live peacefully in their own place instead of disturbing and creating unwanted condition. Meanwhile, EKU has expressed gratitude to Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights, NSF, Naga Hoho and other organisations for extending support and voicing out for Eastern Nagas.

It further requested all Naga organisations to pray for the innocent villagers in border area who were in horrible situation. EKU has also appealed to the armed forces to restrain from firing, bombing and torturing innocent people and allow free movement of public without any prohibition.

NWHD expresses concern
Naga Women Hoho Dimapur (NWHD) has expressed serious concern over the ongoing military operation by the Myanmar army “targeting the civilians under the pretext of proxy war against the NSCN K”. In a press release, NWHD publicity & info secretary, Keninguno Kath, said that the victims were mostly innocent children and women. It said that the action perpetrates and intends to subjugate the minor community, adding that waging war without respecting the human values was a violation of human rights. NWHD has appealed to both the conflicting parties to enter into a negotiation through mutual trust and understanding.
