Jotsoma Village Council (JVC), Chumoukedima Circle Chakhroma Public Organisation (CCCPO) and Dimapur Jotsoma Youth Organisation (DJYO) have strongly condemned the “illegal taxation” demand served on the proprietor of Progressive Motors Dimapur allegedly by cadres of a Naga National Political Group (NNPG).

JVC chairman Mego Nagi and secretary Rüdosielie Peseyie termed as “illegal act” the demand of taxation during such difficult times and said that such threats be viewed in all severity as it infringed basic human rights. JVC also appealed to the government and all stakeholders to hasten and address the Naga political issue as multiple taxation, extortion and illegal activities by “so called NNPGs is a common evil faced by the society and the business community for decades.”

CCCPO: Expressing shock at the action by “some anti social elements calling themselves as national workers”, Chumoukedima Circle Chakhroma Public Organisation (CCCPO) through its president Neikhriehu Kense and general secretary, Khriebulie Peseyie stated that the authorities in the particular group needed to issue a public clarification “as to whether the act of extortion and intimidation was done under the authority of the group or it was commit by a few erring cadres.”

Further, CCCPO reaffirmed “one tax one government” resolution and wand that any group going against the will of the people would be “considered anti-social and will automatically lose the co-operation of our people.” 

CCCPO also appealed to the higher authorities of NNPGs to rein in their “erring personnel” and keep them within limits in order to avoid “misunderstanding and ugly situations.”

DJYO: Dimapur Jotsoma youth organization (DJYO) through its president Avilie Nagi stated that numerous threats and harassment faced by Progressive Motors in general and “T.K Peseyie in particular was a cause of great concern.”

DJYO stated that it echoed the sentiments of Naga public on “one government one tax” and that it was ready to extend its cooperation to NNPGs as and when required. However, the organisation asserted that it vehemently denounced the “use of coercion in order to get their point across.”

Further, the organisation stated that the faction/party in question would be held solely responsible should any harm befall the family members or staff.
