Demands removal of security troops within 24 hours

DIMAPUR, JUNE 13: Alleging that Nagaland Government’s “tyrannical instigation and attitude” were creating unwanted commotion among the public in Mon District, the Konyak Union has given 24 hours to the authorities to cancel deployment of additional security, as well as withdraw troops deployed already in the district.
“While Konyak Union is trying to settle ULB commotion peacefully within the society, it is being learned that the Government of Nagaland and the Home Department is sending additional forces to the district. Such tyrannical instigation and attitude is creating unwanted public alert/commotion that disrupts the peaceful environment of the land”, it stated in a letter addressed, among others, to Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio and Home Minister Y Patton, on Thursday.
In the event of Nagaland Government failing to meet the deadline, the KU warned that the “concerned agency/authority shall be held fully responsible for any untoward situation that may arise in future”.
This spike in tension follows a statement issued by the Rising People’s Party (RPP) on Wednesday in which it had claimed that the filing of nomination papers in eastern districts despite a call for abstention from this year’s ULB elections from ENPO was the Rio-led Government’s way of exacting revenge for the defeat suffered in the Lok Sabha elections.
