DIMAPUR — The Kohima Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) has informed that as the CNCCI’s indefinite shutdown across Nagaland has been called off, all business activities in Kohima may resume as normal.

It also expressed its deepest appreciation to the business community, the public, and all mass-based organisations for their cooperation, support, and solidarity manifested during the period of shutdown. It added that it looks forward to their kind cooperation as always.

Meanwhile, the Kohima Village Youth Organisation (KVYO), in a press release, stated that it will not allow any association, organisation, or union to hijack the day-to-day activities, causing city-wide disruptions in the form of bandhs affecting the productivity of the city, with the lower strata of society bearing the brunt.

It urged the KCCI to keep all business establishments open for the welfare of every citizen of Kohima. The organisation also reminded the business community not to inflate commodity prices following the shutter down.

KVYO maintained that undeliverable preconditions or deadlines mark the end rather than the beginning of a dialogue. It called upon all stakeholders to recognise that the indefinite closure of business establishments isn’t the solution.

Instead, it advocated for valuing dialogue during times of insecurity. KVYO suggested initiating exploratory dialogues with the state government and other entities to seek out potential areas of common ground for the welfare of the business community and the citizens of Kohima city.

Acknowledging the issues of multiple taxation by anti-social elements, self-styled syndicates and unscrupulous individuals, it lauded the initiatives carried forward by the Kohima Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

It also acknowledged the state government’s prompt response to the demands of the business community during its cabinet meeting held on April 26, directing the Director General of Police, Nagaland, to curb illegal rampant taxation, extortion, and kidnappings.

KVYO further requested that the state government sincerely implement its policy based on the decisions made during the cabinet meeting.
