NMPO clarifies on burning of houses

MARAM, SEP 20 | Publish Date: 9/20/2019 12:21:17 PM IST

The Northern Maram People’s Organization (NMPO), has issued a clarification on the land dispute that resulted in dismantling of what it alleged “illegal house structures” at the dispute land area on September 17. The NMPO stated that “it has become necessary to clear fake report doing the rounds in social media and the most exaggerated press release in the name of Makhan Union.” 

A press release by the publicity wing of the NMPO refuted report of the “illegal house structures”  purportedly locked from outside before demolishing the structures with the intention to burn people alive, calling it “totally misleading, mischievous and blowing out of proportion far from any reality, ” while  adding that it “failed to understand with what designs it was misconstrued.” 

NMMPO claimed before the action of dismantling, all inmates were alerted, informed and later those 2 or 3 individuals inside were pushed out of the structures to ensure no one was injured. 

It stated that “specific purpose of the action to dismantle and evict those illegal structures at the dispute land was clear but not to cost lost of lives be it the inmates or their livestock,” adding the actual result after the action would have been otherwise if that was the intention. 

NMPO also refuted  reports to misguide the public that prior to the incident, indiscriminate firing took place. 

It stated that “this ‘illusion’ surely must be the imagination of their June 23,  2014, attack on  Naojai Village with over 100 persons dressed in camouflage with sophisticated weapons inflicting two persons with bullets, ransacking and torturing of 8 houses including Church of the village and later their ‘cartridges’ were handed over to the SDO official concern who came to inspect after the incident.”
