Dimapur, Sep. 19 (EMN): The business association within Dimapur namely the Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Business Association of Nagas, East Dimapur Business Association and Chumukedima Chamber of Commerce and Trade Association have on Tuesday jointly condemned the attempt on the life of L Duolo a local entrepreneur terming it as a ‘dastardly act’ and gave a deadline of 15 days to arrest the culprits.
” The DCCI,BAN,EDBA and CCCTA jointly condemn the dastardly act of those trigger-happy armed cadres from the NSCN-K that attempted to kill the proprietor of Kuda Cold Storage, L Doulo,” the joint statement read.
It also stated that the NSCN-K has defiled the peaceful atmosphere that has been prevailing in Dimapur and the business community will not remain a mere spectator.
“L Doulo a veteran businessman for more than five decades has been an inspiration to many young entrepreneurs. It was he who ventured into the cold storage industry since 2004 despite many challenges,hiccups and still struggles to keep it running.
A humble and soft spoken grandfather it is unimaginable that such brutish attempt on his life should be made. It is also beyond the realm of reason that yearly commercial tax notice be issued twice to the same enterprise by the same NPG,” it stated.
The business bodies demanded that “the perpetrators of such act of violence and whose objective is to spread fear psychosis among the business communities and public in general should be arrested immediately and dealt with as per the law of the land, for which 15 days deadline is given; failing to do so will invite appropriate and befitting action plan.”
