Dimapur, June 14: The Public Action Committee (PAC) has vehemently condemned the mushrooming activities of unabated multiple illegal tax collection by various groups in Dimapur when the market is still unable to function properly due to the COVID-19 crisis.
“The PAC (Public Action Committee) is shocked, perplexed and bemused as to how the various organizations fighting for Naga sovereignty could think of collecting money from the public at such a pandemic period where the whole world economy itself is in distress,” the PAC said in a press release.
“It is beyond comprehension as to why the national workers cannot understand the severity and crisis pandemic has rendered that ultimately led to lockdown affecting everyone economically irrespective of caste, creed or religion etc,” it said.
Viewing those involved in collecting illegal tax at this juncture as anti-Naga and anti-people, the PAC strongly appealed to the State Government and district administration to immediately intervene and tackle the situation and. PAC also informed the various political groups to be more humane and wise so that public sympathy is not totally lost which otherwise may create unwanted situation if public is cornered to its limit.
