State needs to have consensus law on adoption: Therie

Dimapur, July 17: NPCC President, K Therie today stressed on the need for the state to have a consensus law on adoption since adoption law differs from village to village in Nagaland.
Therie said having clear census and identity is a necessity for all political and economic programs both for the nation and for the state and RIIN is to further authenticate Census, Aadhar and Electoral Roll to enable State to apply ILP.
“The simple qualification for RIIN is that a person or his/her name or their legitimate ancestor must be in the electoral list of 05.12.1963. The impact will be upon all who fail the RIIN for they will be subject to ILP and Art 371(A),” he added.
He further stated that cases of bonafide citizens who fail to qualify RIIN need more explanation of their status and position.
“While some remain critical to Art.371(A) even today, therefore the State Legislative has not made any law to effectively implement the Act in letter and spirit. Sometimes when the need comes, we call in Art.371(A) to protect us, other times some call it traitors’ agreement,” he said.
As for the Nagas of Nagaland who have migrated to Urban Habitats, the NPCC president supported NPF President Dr. Shurhozelie’s recommendation to authorize Nagaland villages adding it would be more reliable.
The NPCC said it is the duty of the State Government to execute and discharge justice, equality, protect and preserve without fear or favour, affection or ill-will.
Sooner or later, the illegal migrant issue needs to be resolved either by means of RIIN or otherwise, he further stated. (Page News Service)
