 Zelu (Yangkhullen) Council, Manipur and Nagaland have opposed the tripartite agreement on augmentationof water supply for Kohima and land encroaches. 

A press release from Rangom Hau, chairman Zelu (Yangkhullen) Council (Manipur and Nagaland) stated that, it strongly opposed the signing of tripartite agreement among Poilwa, Khonoma villages and the state government of Nagaland on July 31 for augmentation of water supply at Kohima from Teipuiki Rivier without the consent and knowledge of the traditional land ownership. 

It may be pertinent to mention that the state government of Nagaland and Poilwa village made a similar mistake by signing an MoU in 2008 ignoring the traditional land ownership for the same project, stated the release. 

Meanwhile, the council has also opposed the proposals for the construction of approach road to Dzukou valley from 45 km point (Maram-Peren road) submitted to the government of Manipur by Manipur based NGO “Dzukou valley committee” singed by Oinam Shyamchand, chairman and Peter Kashing, secretary if it is within the jurisdiction of Ze (Yangkhullen) village.

The Zelu Council (Manipur and Nagaland) has strongly opposed and cautioned that any agreement and proposals for any developmental activities without the consent of the traditional land owners within its jurisdiction would be opposed “tooth and nail.”
