Drawing attention to the border tension along Halwating-Tuli area, NDPP 21 Tuli A/C has vehemently condemned the intrusion of Assam authorities in to Nagaland led by Assam police and the local MLA of Amguri, Prodip Hazarika.

According to NDPP 21 Tuli A/C media & communication cell, the police and local MLA of Amguri entered into Nagaland on July 23 to set up a police outpost at Watiyongpang. NDPP alleged that this group from Assam tried to cause communal disharmony amongst the Assamese and the Nagas living in the border as well as create law and order situation. 
NDPP asserted that the said area was well under the jurisdiction of Wamaken village since time immemorial and the villagers had been cultivating in that area since the time of their ancestors. “It is absurd that the Assam government is suddenly trying to claim that area as theirs!”, NDPP stated. In order to maintain the cordial and conducive relationship between the people living on both sides of the border, NDPP 21 Tuli A/C has urged both Nagaland and Assam government to resolve the problem at the earliest.
NDPP 21 Tuli A/C also lauded the PDA government led by chief minister, Neiphiu Rio for taking prompt action to diffuse the tension. 
Meanwhile, NDPP has also criticized the local MLA of the NPF party for not visiting the site, let alone issuing a statement to condemn, while his counterpart in Assam was actively participating openly, encouraging the people to come out and defend their lands/rights.
The party further demanded from the local MLA to publicly declare to the people of Tuli A/C as to what measures he has taken in order to defuse the current volatile situation whereby the people have been suffering physically and mentally for the last so many days.
NDPP said that the issue/blockade had not only affected the people of Tuli area but also the entire Mokokchung district. 
Further, NDPP has requested the people to be patient and restrain from creating any untoward incident and allow the concerned authorities resolve the matter through legal means.
