Dimapur, June 24 (EMN): Twenty-four villages under the banner of Tamlu, Yongnyah and Namsang Area Public Forum (TYNA) have dissociated from the Phom Peoples’ Council, the community’s apex organisation.

A press release from the TYNA on Monday informed that the decision to dissociate was taken on June 18 because of the PPC’s failure to “uphold and implement” one of its resolutions adopted on November 25, 2015.

According to the forum, the PPC had resolved thus: “Any means of government projects schemes and funds should not be diverted or shifted from one place to another viz. district headquarter/subdivision/EAC headquarter and villages vice versa and all the development funds should be judiciously utilised.”

It stated that the forum had on several occasions urged the PPC to uphold and implement the resolution, the latest being June 18. “TYNA declaration of dissociation from Phom Peoples’ Council is not emotional-based and hurried decision but an outburst of accumulated displeasure over the intentional non-implementation of apex tribal resolution,” it read.

According to the TYNA, it had submitted a representation to the minister concerned and the state government not to go against the resolution “but consciously the minister, Temjen Imna Along shrugged off and disregarded the genuine appeal of the people.”

“TYNA on June 18, requested the government not to create misunderstanding and disunity among the people but (it) paid no attention. TYNA denounce laying of two foundation stones for a single polytechnic institute. It has only sown the seed of hatred and division. TYNA will not rest until justice is delivered to the people by implementing PPC resolution No. 3 in letter and in spirit,” the statement read.

It has directed TYNA members to resign en masse in order to create separate TYNA platforms like students and women organisation etc.

“If any member of TYNA is found violating this resolution, TYNA will impose a fine of INR 50,000 and initiate action deemed fit,” it stated.

The forum has also condemned the bomb blast at the resident of the PPC president.
