Tzürangkong Naga Youth Front (TNYF) has asked the state government to initiate and workout with the Centre and Assam government to remove the Disturbed Area Belt (DAB) tag from all Naga inhabited areas within the state of Nagaland bordering Assam. 

In a statement, TNYF president Bendangwati and general secretary Shiluyongdang said that the DAB tag was more advantageous to the interest of Assam and was causing a lot of hardships to the inhabitants of the area.  It also demanded removal of all the Armed Assam police camps established inside Nagaland at the earliest possible time to avoid any undesired consequences.

TNYF thanked minister Temjen Imna Along, BJP functionaries of 30th Alongtaki A/C and Rising People’s Party for visiting the area and voicing their solidarity with the people of Tzürangkong and Northern Sumi areas.

NSH, NSSU demand police outpost
Drawing the attention of the state government to the difficulties faced by the Nagas living in Assam-Nagaland border belt area, the Northern Sumi Hoho (NSH) and Northern Sumi Students’ Union (NSSU) have demanded redeployment of NAP outpost near Aghautito village, which was withdrawn in 1972, in order to provide adequate security in the border area. 
NSH president Kughavi Chophy, general secy. Vikai Yeptho, NSSU president Puloto Awomi and general secy. P Samuel Chophy stated that Assam-Nagaland border tension has erupted at Vikuto village bordering Assam after Assam police led by Rupjyoti Kumri, MLA from Mariani entered Vikuto village on May 27, 2021. 
The two bodies said Assam police destroyed huts and arecanut plantations besides illegally establishing camp and encroaching more than 2kms of land. 
NSH and NSSSU pointed out that the 1972 agreement signed between the government of Assam and government of Nagaland agreed to withdraw all its forces to maintain status quo in border belt area. However, they said that the government of Assam had failed to maintain in spirit multiple times. 
Further, the two two bodies, on behalf of the Northern Sumi public, have appealed to state government to take up necessary measures with government of Assam to withdraw its police personnel that had “illegally established” its camp at Vikuto village area in order to avoid further escalation between the two states.
