In response to the State government’s appeal and considering the reasons cited for delay in acceding to their demands and the assurance for taking necessary urgent steps for addressing them, Aqahuto area civil society organisations (CSOs) have announced suspending chakka bandh/agitation for the time being.

In a letter to deputy commissioner (DC) Dimapur Rajesh Soundararajan through Dhansiripar SDO (C), the CSOs however stated that they were suspending their stir subject to timely and urgent steps for addressing their eight-point charter of demands, besides urgently implementing joint commissioner of Nagaland’s directive of July 8, 2019 to DC to “immediately vacate” any person from the disputed area.

The CSOs threatened to further resume their agitation in the event of any delay or failure to implement the chief secretary’s order of June 25, 2019 for maintaining status quo and for stopping any activity or development and on non-implementation of the joint commissioner’s July 8, 2019 order for immediate eviction of illegal occupants from the disputed area.

They insisted immediate implementation of the above in the light of “incessant and continuous threat” by illegal encroachers, mostly from neighbouring Manipur, on “our village lands” in gross violation of the government orders.

The letter was signed by head GB and Aqahuto Area GB Union president Kakiho Achumi, Aqahuto Sumi Totimi Hoho president Sumiholi Swu, Aqahuto Area Youth Front president Ashito Sumi, Aqahuto Area Students’ Union president Akai Swu and Aqahuto Area Sports Association president Mughalu Yeptho. 

Meanwhile, in another letter to the DC, the CSOs and general public of Aqahuto set a seven-day period for the Dimapur district administration to arrest the culprits behind the incident in which two houses were burnt at Khehoi village on February 20, failing which they warned of taking their own course of action.

The letter stated that general public of the area and CSOs held at meeting in this regard at Pimla village on Monday and condemned the “cowardly act”, adding that an FIR has already been filed at Chumukedirna police station in connection with the incident.
