JCCV locks office of SDO (C) Dhansiripar

As part of its protest to lock government offices at Dhansiripar, the Joint Co-ordination Committee of Villages (JCCV) for Dimapur district Monday began the process by locking the office of the SDO (Civil), Dhansiripar. JCCV is protesting against what it described as “arbitrary merger” of some fifty villages under Dhansiripar sub-division and Urra area with the newly created district of Chümoukedima.
In a press release, JCCV convenor LK Swu and co-convenor Tsithrongshe Sangtam informed that more than 200 leaders from 50 odd villages participated in the protest. The committee also informed that it has “unanimously” resolved to impose bandh on vehicular movement as well as schools in the sub-division if the government failed to initiate the process for resolution of the impasse after the expiry of 48 hours starting May 2, 2022.
According to JCCV, it has tried its best to avoid extreme steps of agitation, but was compelled to “resort to these steps for the larger interest of the people against the government indifference.” At a meeting called in the afternoon by DC Chumoukedima, JCCV said they held a discussion to explore possibilities to solve the impasse amicably.
