Dimapur, April 9: The Western Sumi Youth Front (WSYF) has expressed dismay over the frequent mentioning of Lamhainamdi village as under Peren District when the disputed area is yet to be demarcated.
“The Western Sumi Youth Front is dismayed to come across media statements frequently mentioning the so-called non-existent Lamhainamdi village as under Peren district when the disputed area is yet to be demarcated and the same cannot be attributed to be under the jurisdiction of either Peren or Dimapur district. What is more surprising is the state government’s own Department Information & Public Relations’ position mentioning “Lamhainamdi” as under Peren district during the recent visit of the Leader of Opposition, T.R. Zeliang to the area on April 5, 2021,” said a press release issued by the media cell, WSYF.
The front stated that Kiyevi village was established in 1939 even before Nagaland’s statehood and documentary evidences clearly show that the disputed area falls within the jurisdiction of Kiyevi village under Dhansiripar sub division in Dimapur district.
“The so-called Lamhainamdi village does not exist and the illegally proposed village is to be set up by some encroachers from Manipur state in the land belonging to Kiyevi village,” it alleged. (Full Text)
