DIMAPUR — The Dimapur Ao Youth Organisation (DAYO) has praised the Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) for its proactive stance in addressing the issue of rampant illegal taxation, which has led to inflated prices within the market.

In a press statement, DAYO stated that NCD, as the apex tribal organisation with representatives from all tribes in Dimapur, should confront extortion and multiple taxation by various unions and numerous Naga political groups head on.

‘Unless hard-hitting measures are undertaken to create a fair and conducive business environment, Dimapur is losing out on its competitive edge to neighbouring townships in Assam,’ it said, adding that DAYO will firmly stand behind the recent bold stance taken by the government of Nagaland to book extortionists under the National Security Act (NSA).

DAYO noted that deploying police forces to boost confidence among the business community and operationalizing CCTVs to aid monitoring and vigilance for investigating authorities are the right steps taken at the right time.

It pledged its unwavering support to all like-minded organisations committed to eradicating the “parasitic menace of syndicate systems in businesses and tackling the proliferation of drug addiction and substance abuse.”

DAYO also urged all community leaders, not only in Dimapur but throughout Nagaland, to prioritise community policing initiatives to bolster the efforts of law enforcement agencies. It added that fostering stronger collaborations between communities and authorities can collectively work towards ensuring the well-being of society and safeguarding the traditional values and fabric of the diverse Naga society for the upcoming generation.

It stated that extortion and drugs are burning social menaces that require immediate collective intervention and should be the urgent goal of every sensible civil society organisation (CSO) and non-governmental organisation (NGO).

Furthermore, DAYO reiterated its call to action for the Ao community to utilise the DAYO Helpline, +91 89748 51911, to report any grievances or injustices that threaten the fabric and very existence of the Ao community in and around Dimapur.
