THE Naga Hoho has warned the Election Commission of India and Assam government of “adverse consequences” if they do not address the issue of the Assam police encroaching into the land of Ladiagarh village under 49 Tamlu assembly constituency in Nagaland.
The Naga organization has said that it would not remain a ‘mute spectator’ to the encroachment from Assam into land that belongs to Phom Nagas.
“The Naga Hoho is perturbed to learnt about the prohibition of Lok Sabha Election by the Assam government at Ladiagarh village under 49 Tamlu A/C which is a blatant violation of the law of Election Commission of India (ECI) and directive of the Supreme Court of India,” the organization said in a press release received here April 9.
“The action of the Assam Police is an act of forceful occupation and an encroachment on the Naga Areas as such Naga Hoho will not remain a mute spectator.
Further, the Naga Hoho fervently appeal to the ECI to initiate immediately for peaceful polling at Ladiagarh under any circumstances, or else the ECI and Assam Govt. shall be held responsible for any adverse consequence,” the Naga Hoho has stated.
The Naga Hoho is “very clear that the election have been conducting in this said area even in the past basing on the fact that the Ladiagarh is purely within the jurisdiction of Longleng district in the state of Nagaland and traditionally belongs to the Phom Nagas”.
The organization has questioned the “arbitrariness” of the Assam Police “with ulterior motives to create war between the two sisterly states”.
The Assam government is told to maintain status quo as before and allow the elections to take place smoothly.
