Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) has reaffirmed the “public meeting resolutions” adopted by 19 tribal bodies on September 11, 2012 and May 10, 2016, opposing arbitrary imposition of lightning bandh or strikes in Dimapur.

During the executive meeting held on June 10, 2019, NCD president T. Bangerloba and general secretary Thsapongkyu Sangtam said the house resolved to uphold the decision not to allow any organization, hohos, unions and associations etc. in Dimapur to arbitrarily impose any lightning bandhs/strikes.

NCD said arbitrary imposition of lightning bandhs/strikes, in many occasions, has led to riots, violence, arson, etc. where public have been made to suffer, disturbing public peace and also resulting in loss of lives/properties and creating communal/tribal disharmony and enmity.

Therefore, NCD warned that any organization, hohos, unions or associations etc. found imposing arbitrary, random and illegal lightning bandhs/strikes shall be considered as anti-social, harmful to the peaceful co-existence of Naga society and will face non-cooperation. NCD further said that such organizations will also not be considered for any partnership with peace-loving civil society. The council has therefore asked the district administration to take strong legal action without fear or favour against the defaulters.

However, NCD said that any organization, hohos, union or association, etc. intending to organize democratic form of protests for legitimate grievances shall do so with due permission from district administration and in consultation with the NCD, DCCI and DNSU at least three days in advance, to avoid public inconvenience.

NCD has also directed all shops, business establishments, schools, colleges/institutes, departments, etc. not to cooperate with sudden and arbitrary calls for lightning bandh/strikes but to report the matter to district administration/police immediately and also to inform NCD, DCCI and DNSU for proper coordination with authorities.

In view of the above, NCD has asked all organizations, hohos, unions, and association, etc including the public to cooperate with this notification, is issued in public interest.
