NSCN-IM reiterates prohibition order
DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 25
DESPITE Azha (order) on the prohibition of contraband such as liquor, drugs and marijuana and repeated warnings and steps taken on the same, the NSCN-IM said some people are still indulging in the same
According to a press release by Lt. Col. Ape Venuh (Retd), who is the Kilonser and caretaker CAO of UT, NSCN-IM, the GPRN had issued the Azha in the “larger interest” of the society and not against any individual. Therefore, contraband and the vehicle transporting it will be seized and both will not be released. The release also said that the purpose of controlling the same is to let Naga youths find a better and brighter future instead of being influenced by “those evils” which could be literally termed as the root cause of problems in the family and society. These activities are also against the norms of Christianity whereas we declare ourselves as Christians and our land for Christ.
The release further said that people involving in contraband goods would “definitely invite problem and curse to themselves as well as their generation in the sight of God and man.” Besides, women involved in prostitution have been warned to immediately stop plying their trade before they face the consequences. All concerned have also been asked to caution their own communities in this regard lest they be put to shame.
Having learnt that some individuals are collecting money from businessmen in the name of CAO UT, they have been warned to immediately stop their activity lest they invite “severe punishment.” Phone No. 9774057292 may be contacted for any related issue, the release added.
