UNC accuses GoM of encroaching tribals land

Dimapur, April 22 : The United Naga Council (UNC) has strongly condemned what it alleged "the communal policy" of the Government of Manipur for encroaching upon the land of the tribals and the Nagas by deploying communal forces and creating a highly communal situation in Jiribam.

In a statement, the UNC publicity wing said in spite of repeated public statements by tribal organisations demanding for intervention in the encroachment of Tamenglong district by the Meitei community of Jiribam Sub-Division under Imphal East District, the house of a tribal was burnt down after locking up the inmates from the outside and tribal students were assaulted on April 13 as a fallout of the encroachment agenda.

"The FIRs against the crimes naming the accused were registered on the night of 13th April, 2014 itself. But no arrest have been made till date and the explosive situation has been allowed to worsen without any action from the Government of Manipur. The law of the land has not been upheld and the criminals are at large continuing freely with their communal agenda," it alleged.

Asserting that the Nagas and tribals must be in united readiness to protect and safeguard their traditional lands and boundaries from the aggressors who have been employing various policies and mechanism to encroach upon our lands, the UNC sought the immediate intervention of the Government of India for preventing the situation from spiralling out of hand.

The Government of Manipur must be held responsible for any further communal flare up in the area as they have wilfully refrained from containing the situation, it added. (Page News Service)

The NMA also condemned the alleged rape of a minor girl, age five, by Povetso at Mohonkhola, Kohima on April 13.

Such unethical, monstrous and most inhuman crime should be seriously investigated and punished in its severest manner so that it don't happen again. It is very sad and breaks our heart to see such shameful incidents are happening. Violent crimes against women have been re-occurring in our society and just verbal condemnation is not enough. Unless law takes strict action and creates a sense of fear in people, such sad incidents will continue to happen, NMA president Abei-u Meru and secretary Lochumbeni Humtsoe said in a condemnation.

The NMA appealed and demanded from the law enforcing agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are given the strictest punishment possible. (Page News Service)
