PDMGDVA threatens to resume indefinite stir

Phek District Maytas-Gayatri Damaged Victim Association (PDMGDVA) Hq Chozuba town under Phek district has once again threatened to impose indefinite road blockade after May 25, 2022 if the state respondent failed to file the additional affidavit on or before May 25, 2022.
In representation addressed to the state chief secretary through DC Phek, the PDMGDVA convenor Pushovoyi Nyekha and con-convenors Vepozoyi Theyo, Mudonyi Shijoh and Nehusa Cukhamu pointed out that when the Chakhesang Public Organisation (CPO)’s PIL pertaining to damaged compensation was “seemingly reaching” conclusion in the Gauhati High Court, the state respondent again pleaded the Court on April 6, 2022 for more time to file a ‘clarificatory affidavit’.
PDMGDVA said the Court accordingly granted four-week time to the state respondent, and listed the matter on May 11, 2022 categorically stating that no further time would be granted for the said purpose.
The association, however, said that when the matter came before the Court on May 11, 2022, the State Respondent once again pleaded for more time on “flimsy ground.”
It said the Court, in spite of last order not to grant further time, granted another two-week time to the state respondent and the matter was listed again on May 25, 2022.
Stating that it was not unaware if payment for the damaged compensation was thrusted upon State Government alone, the association said it would become a burden beyond its capacity.
For this reason, the association said it had patiently awaited the State Respondent to wake up to the call. PDMGDVA said the Court was also aware of such burden and had given ample opportunity to the state respondent to file additional affidavit as directed.
However, PDMGDVA said the state respondent was “least concerned and least bothered” about its potential overburden task and especially the agony and anger of thousands of damaged victims.
Stating that on a few occasions past it had withdrawn agitations due to appeal by state government, the association, however, said that such plea “may not be reciprocated” by the victim community in the coming days.
