Untaba objects to person’s appeal to court on border issue
Dimapur, March 1 (EMN): The United Naga Tribes Association on Border Areas (Untaba) has objected to an individual’s appeal to the high court seeking intervention in the matter of the border issue between Assam and Nagaland.
The association issued a press release.
The Untaba stated that it was “amazed by the audacity of one Sushil Kumar, the so-called former member of Democratic Alliance of Nagaland” for appealing to the honourable chief justice of Guwahati High Court to intervene in the subjudice matter of the border issue between Nagaland and Assam in view of the implementation of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) regime in the state of Nagaland by the government of Nagaland as carried by the various local newspapers.
“In as much as the implementation of ILP regime in the state of Nagaland and in particular, in the district of Dimapur is concerned, it is the prerogative of the GoN to formulate its own policies and mechanisms for the implementation of the ILP administration and its success, of which the Untaba in particular is confident that the GoN has appropriate mechanisms at hand.”
In matters of the boundary issue between the two states, the case is pending in the Supreme Court of India for more than 30 years now, the press release stated.
“Hence, the matter is subjudiced and nobody, including Sushil Kumar should poke his nose unless of course he is ignorant about the facts or he wants to brew misunderstandings amongst the people of the two states and in particular between the peace-loving citizens of Dimapur and Kachar district of Karbi Anglong, Assam,” the press release stated.
