WSH, NGOs of Niuland district say no to taxation; invite investors

In order to make newly created district Niuland as the next educational and commercial hub of the state, Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) and NGOs under Nuiland district held a joint meeting Saturday at DC conference Hall Niuland town.
At the meeting chaired by WSH vice president Tohoshe Awomi, WSH and NGOs of newly created Niuland district, issues discussed included- unabated taxation by NPGs; land allotment and controlling of free flow of liquor and drugs to Niuland area were discussed.
With regard to ‘lapses and omissions’ in land allotment to various individuals by Niuland district administration, done without following proper norms, the meeting has set up a five-member committee to investigate the matter.
On unabated taxation by NPGs, the meeting deemed that such taxes have become the main reason for hampering growth and development of Niuland in any sphere and therefore, resolved to not pay any taxes to any underground faction.
It was also resolved that no land donor should ask for any land compensation from the government since “development belongs to all.”
In order to check the ‘free flow’ of alcohol and drugs to Niuland, which have become a menace and ruining lives of many youths, families and posing social problems; the meeting resolved to assign Students Union, Totimi Hoho and Citizens Forum of Niuland to check these items.
In conclusion, WSH has appealed to all entrepreneurs and businesses to invest ‘without fear in Niuland district’ as it has high economic prospect due to its proximity with Assam and also the ongoing Nagaland Expressway or Foothill Road which will make the district the educational and commercial hub.
Along with WSH, the NGOs who attended the meeting included- Niuland District GBs Association, Niuland Area Citizens Forum, Niuland Development Council, Niuland Area GBs Association, Niuland Area Totimi Hoho and Niuland Area Students Union.
