Dimapur, August 4: While appreciating the Nagaland state government for stepping up its vigil along the highways and entry points, the Western Sumi Hoho (WSH) has demanded that Dimapur district should be brought under the purview of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) with strict enforcement in letter and spirit without any further delay.
It said check posts at various stretches should be set-up with adequate police personnel in the border areas of the state. The ILP gate should be brought back to the earlier New Field check gate and the Dillai gate. The hoho said a similar exercise of the National Registration of Citizens (NRC) conducted in Assam should be carried in the state of Nagaland as the influx of outsiders has reached an alarming proportion posing a very serious risk for our small indigenous population, adding the plain areas of Dimapur have been swarmed with the influx of illegal immigrants.
The Hoho said the issue of illegal immigrants is a complex issue and the government cannot do alone without the help of the civil societies and the public and vice versa.
It said enough crimes like rape, kidnap and intimidation against Nagas have been committed which should be an enough eye-opener for all and the more delay would be riskier for het Nagas.
The Western Sumi Hoho has asked the Western Sumi Youth Front (WSYF) and the Western Sumi Students Union (WSSU) to remain alert and keep vigil on the influx of illegal immigrants at every area and villages.
It said the Nagas need a similar movement like the Ao Students Union (AKM) Survival Mokokchung 2017 “to free ourselves from the influx of the illegal immigrants as we are now on the verge of becoming a minority in our own land.”
The WSH praised the Aos for their farsightedness and wisdom in understanding and averting this danger much ahead before any Naga tribes realized it.
The hoho also cautioned on the detestable act of recruiting non-Nagas by some NPGs into their folds arming them with weapons which is jeopardizing integrity and sanctity of the Naga Movement describing it as an anti- Naga act detrimental for our future generations. (Page News Service)
