DIMAPUR, MAR 4 (NPN) | Publish Date: 3/4/2020 12:45:20 PM IST

Drawing attention on video clips that went viral on March 1, showing some people preventing Nagaland registration vehicles from either entering Assam at Lahorijan near Nagaland gate, in protest against implementation of ILP in Dimapur, Working Committee (WC) of NNPGs has cautioned it will probe and unmask the “ringleaders”.

In a statement WC said it will “investigate, monitor and identify those ringleaders sitting in Dimapur and who are instigating their colleagues at Lahorijan area to oppose implementation of ILP in our land” and then will not hesitate to “shut down the business outlets of these members.” 

While reaffirming mutual respect and co-existence among Nagas, Dimasa, Karbis, Kacharis and Ahoms for centuries despite trials and tribulations, WC said the existence as friends and neighbours was now put to test by unabated influx of illegal immigrants to Assam and Nagaland from Bangladesh. Therefore WC said it has become utmost necessity strengthen the age-old bond between the indigenous people of north east India as “ we cannot be at loggerheads because of illegal immigrants.” 

WC also warned that the video clips was a “grim reminder, that indigenous people in NE are being pushed to the corner and therefore, appropriate response is required”. According to WC, there was not a single person resembling a tribal on that Sunday. WC said a few hundred illegal immigrants gathered to block Nagas travelling in Nagaland registered vehicles from going towards Assam was not a positive sign. It said any issue between Nagas and Ahoms can be resolved any day and urged Assamese people that the incident was “a red flag because the enemy is now outnumbering you and becoming aggressive”. WC further warned that Nagas and indigenous Assamese “must realise the danger of nursing poisonous reptiles in our kitchen.”

WC is the probe unmasks the ringleaders in Dimapur and surrounding areas, it will not hesitate to shut down the business outlets that “they will be thrown out of our land.” 

WC also cautioned all non-tribal people in Nagaland against opposition to ILP either in words or action otherwise it will be taken as an affront on Naga people’s aspiration and their long political struggle. 

WC also informed that it had met with Ahom revolutionary leaders, CSO leaders and positively shared common concerns and reassured neighbours in Assam and other states, that Nagas stand prepared to partner indigenous peoples in the region to “weed out all illegal immigrants, the landless troublemakers for good.”

WC also urged both governments of Assam and Nagaland to adopt a common stance along the border which is being swamped by illegal immigrants and resulting in indigenous communities becoming subservient to the landless immigrants. It reiterated that “ancestral land and indigenous peoples interest must be safeguarded at all cost.”
