DIMAPUR, APR 6 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/6/2021 12:43:43 PM IST

Various civil society organisations (CSOs) of Dimapur have expressed opposition against shifting of the office of the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Dimapur from its present site to Chümoukedima village and vowed not to allow it under any circumstances. 

Several CSOs, in a recent representation to the chief minister, through the DC Dimapur , expressed dismay that despite their earlier representations, the state government was in the process of shifting the DC Office to its new location.

The CSOs- Dimapur District Citizens’ Forum (DDCF), Dimapur Urban Colony Chairman Federation (DUCCF), Naga Council Dimapur (NCD), Sadar GB Union Dimapur (SGBUD), Dimapur Bar Association (DBA), Naga Women Hoho Dimapur (NWHD), Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries (DCCI), Dimapur District GB Association (DDGBA), Dimapur District Village Council Chairman Association (DDVCAA) and Dimapur Naga Students Union (DNSU), appealed to the state government to heed to the voice of the people and concede their demand in the interest of the public. The CSOs also demanded that the state government revoke the use of the word “Head Quarter: Chumukedima” in the official letter head of the DC Dimapur. 

They however, stated that have no objection if the civil administration was bifurcated into –Urban and Rural- within the district for the convenience of the people.  The CSOs cautioned that in the event the government continued to “act against public interest”, the public of Dimapur would be compelled to “take out democratic agitations to ensure that the interest of the public is safeguarded.”

The representation was signed by DDCF president Yibemo Kikon and general secretary Richard Haolai, SGBUD president MY Ngullie and vice-president W Kholie Kapfo, DBA L Luzukhu Achumi, DDGBA president Khehovi Chopi, DNSU president Sedevilie Angami, DUCCF president Tsenthungo Nyamo, NCD general secretary Thsapongkyu Sangtam and vice president Etsungmomo Kikon, NWHD Elly Swu, DCCI joint secretary Ahidur Rahman and DDVCCA president I Khekuto Wilson.

CNSA: Meanwhile, Central Nagaland Students’ Association (CNSA) asserted that it would not tolerate any move by the government to shift the DC’s office Dimapur to another location.

CNSA president Himato Yeptho and general secretary Libemo M Tsopoe said shifting to new district headquarters, situated in a village land, would impede the district administration in executing the duties and responsibilities “as the Village council will dictate the terms of Governance in the District”. 

CNSA stated that Naga people at the present juncture needed “able and interference free Administration for growth and equitable development”.

CNSA said as the only commercial centre in the State, Dimapur “should be encouraged to further fuel the economic growth of the state for giving opportunities to unemployed youths.” CNSA reiterated that Dimapur district cannot function under a village council.
