Blockade on Kiyevi: WSH seeks govt’s intervention

Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) emergency meeting on Friday with all its frontal organisations, which deliberated on “unjustified blockade” on Kiyevi village by Nagaland Zeliang People Organisation (NZPO), urged the state government to immediately intervene and ensure the lifting of the blockade within 24 hours.
In a press release, WSH president Shikaho Zhimomi and joint secretary Hetovi Yepthomi said that in the event of the government’s failure, an indefinite bandh would be enforced in the entire Dhasiripar Sub-division. WSH said it would also take “remedial steps it deems fit to rescue Kiyevi village from the unjustified blockade.”
Further, the hoho has resolved to withdraw from the co-ordination committee, which was earlier formed between the Zeliangrong Baudi Nagaland (ZBN) and the WSH.
Meanwhile, WSH has directed all Sumis residing in Peren district to leave the district “within 48 hours of this notification until further notice.”
