Will not accept “betrayal by Government of Nagaland”: DSUN

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, JANUARY 24: The Dimasa Students’ Union Nagaland (DSUN) has once again demanded for an amendment of Government notification (vide GAB 1/COM/DIST.ADMIN/2019 (Pt-1) Dated 20th Dec, 2021), creating Chumukedima and Niuland district carving out of Dimapur district.
The DSUN said it had submitted a memorandum addressed to Chief Minister of Nagaland on January 4 and even after a series of mandatory documentation, no amicable settlement or response was delivered by the Government of Nagaland, “whereas another new district and a tribe was officially recognized overnight by overlooking our appeal which were put up overhand”.
In a press release issued by its president, Faihamti Longmailai and general secretary, Hamrongdau Difoe, the Union said their cries are being “ignored” for the rights which stands firm historically.
The Union also stated that the creation of new district under Government of Nagaland is an “injustice to the whole Dimasa community due to the segregation of 7 (seven) Dimasa villages from Dimapur knowing the fact that the Dimapur ruins also called Kachari Rajbari looked after by the ASI proves the living testimony of Dimasa Kachari Kingdom since medieval period.”
Stating that the student’s body shall in no way accept this “betrayal by the Government of Nagaland” against its community, the Union opposed the decision with regard to the bifurcation of Dimasa Kachari villages as this division is completely non-consensual and arbitrary and in no way protects the rights of its community but “murder the aboriginality of the whole Dimasa Kachari community”.
The Union said failing to address their demands, the community would be obliged to take “vigorous action”.
