Condemning the recent killing and standoff between factions in and around Dimapur, Naga Council, Dimapur (NCD) has urged the warring factions to restrain themselves. 

Mentioning that peace was under threat due to organised crimes and killings, NCD, a conglomeration of 19 tribes, said it totally condemned and abhorred the gun culture that was now spreading in Dimapur area. 

In a statement, NCD general secretary Thsapongkyu Sangtam said, “We do not condone the gangster attitude, combat operations against each other, killing people in front of their family members and children and criminal activities in crowded public places and residential areas.” 

Stating that wielding gun did not in any way give anyone the license to commit crimes and threaten others, Thsapongkyu questioned the conduct of NPGs, adding that general Naga public have had enough in the name of Naga movement. He said the State had been marred by factionalism and violence and infighting among leaders leading to emergence of new groups and factions. 

It was time for NGPs to strictly discipline their respective cadres and members, lest “our Naga movement remains a problem forever”, he added.

The NCD general secretary appreciated the State government and law enforcing agencies for quick handling of the law and order situation in Dimapur. He urged the agencies to adopt measures to contain matters that affected public peace, so that a feeling of security was created and maintained in the community.

Thsapongkyu said NCD also looked forward to governor and Centre’s interlocutor for Naga peace talks RN Ravi to bring lasting peace and early settlement to the protracted Naga issue under his able leadership.
