 To prevent influx of illegal immigrants in Nagaland particularly in the wake of final draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) publication in Assam, the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) Monday said that it would be carrying out phase-I exercise along with its federating and sub-ordinate units. In a press release, NSF president, Kesosul Christopher Ltu, and general secretary, Imtiyapang Imsong, stated that the student volunteers, in order to segregate the genuine Indian citizens from the illegal immigrants, would be assigned to verify the documents of non-locals at any time and at any place. 

In this regard, the federation has directed the ILP holders to carry along with them their ILP and other relevant documents like Electorate ID Card and Aadhaar card etc. In the process of verification of ILP and other related documents, NSF said those who could not able to produce the documents would be considered as illegal immigrants, adding that defaulters would be handed over to the district administration and police or would be dealt with stern action as deemed fit by the student unions.
Meanwhile, the federation sought to make its stand clear that the proposed exercise was being carried out to identify and weed out the illegal immigrants. It assured that no genuine citizens of the country would be harassed in the process of the verification so long as the person was able to produce the documents.
NSF has appealed to the district administration and law enforcing agencies to extend assistance and service as and when required by the student unions and its volunteers.
Federation also requested the general public to extend cooperation to the student unions and volunteers, saying the current issue/threat was a common concern faced by the public.
