Illegal immigrants swamping Dimapur

DIMAPUR, Oct 4 NNN : The ballooning population of ‘outsiders’ in Nagaland especially in the state commercial hub Dimapur is quite alarming. Civil society organisations in Nagaland are actually concerned about the presence of ‘illegal Bangladeshi immigrants’. However, to detect them, a concrete mechanism is yet to be found. The Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) and the Naga Council, Dimapur (NCD) are spending sleepless nights to address this issue in their own respective ways. Several meetings have been convened by both the organisations in this respect.
Speculations have been doing the round for sometime now that large number of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants are flooding into Nagaland through Assam. In the commercial hub Dimapur the population of these immigrants are quite big but officially this fact has not been confirmed. Majority of the labourers in Dimapur are reportedly from Bangladesh. Construction works are carried out by these immigrants but when queried about their origins, these labourers would often say they are from Dhubri district of Assam or from Barak Valley, Silchar or even from Karimganj.
Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) president Kelhouneizo Yhome said since it is a sensitive issue they are dealing it with extra care. The NSF chief disclosed that it has been one month now that the students’ body is collecting ‘census’. “Our federating units are doing the job of collecting census from their respective districts of Nagaland and once it is completed we will chalk out our move to filter the illegal immigrants”, stated Mr Yhome while adding, “We are doing with extra care so that the genuine Indians are not affected nor their sentiment is hurt.” However, it is not clear whether the NSF is taking themselves the census of ‘outsiders’ or collecting the already recorded official data.
Meanwhile, interestingly on Gandhi Jayanti, the Naga Council, Dimapur (NCD) had launched a ‘non-violent campaign aganst illegal Bangladeshi immigrants’ in Dimapur. Quite a sizeable number of people both Nagas and non-Nagas inked their signatories under the slogan, “ I pledge that I shall wholly and steadfastly boycott illegal Bangladeshis immigrants (IBIs) socially and economically. I shall not lease out my premises, including both residential and commercial, to IBIs, as part of my social commitment. I shall boycott all the business establishments of IBIs who now control the economy of our state and instead patronize fellow Nagas and fellow Indians. This pledge is borne out of love for my Naga people.”
“I took this pledge to uphold the truth; the truth that Nagas are in danger of losing their Christian character to an alien religion; the truth that Naga identity is in erosion created by a tidal wave of alien culture; the truth that Nagas can be self-reliant, not depending on aliens for their survival; the truth that the well-being of our future generation and survival of Naga identity depends on us taking a historic and firm stand today”, it reads.
It can be mentioned here that in the month of August, the Naga Hoho had called upon all the states in the North East India region to unite for flushing out illegal Bangladeshi immigrants from the region. The Naga Hoho had also said earlier that illegal Bangladeshi immigrants should be flushed from the region by joining and uniting together by all the north eastern states. “This is the right time to flush out the illegal Bangladeshi immigrants,” apex Naga body had said.

The two blasts struck the first escort vehicle and then the rear just as the vehicle Priyokumar was riding in went passed the site.
The police and the Assam Rifles personnel who were later enforced after the attack recovered another bomb planted in the area, police said.
Meanwhile, in the evening, Chandel MLA and other top state police officials visited RIMS where the seven police personnel are undertaking treatment. The two personnel seriously injured in the attack have been referred to Shija hospital, Langol as their condition deteriorated.
The seven constable injured personnel were identified as Chinkholen Aimol, Athang Aimol, Chongte Chothe, Badan Meitei, Medul Maring, Morung Maring and Alensang Maring .
Out of the seven injure personnel Chinkholen Aimol and Medul Maring are said to be in critical condition.
HQ IGAR S said in a statement that at around 1405h Convoy of SP Chandel was ambushed at a place 4 km from Khudenthabi toward Moreh when the convoy of police was on move to Imphal.

IMPHAL, Oct 4: The Manipur People’s Party (MPP) observed a protest dharna on Thursday condemning the statement of Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde who had said no to the introduction of Inner Line Permit system (ILP) in Manipur.
Veteran MPP leader O Joy told reporters it was an indecent act of Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, who has become an elected lawmaker, to abuse the Manipur assembly House without courtesy. The demonstration was staged in front of the MPP office building here.
Joy further called on the Prime Minister for action against Shinde for allegedly uttering such offensive remarks. “Our state needs an urgent Act to save its people even though the ILP system is not enforced.”
MPP on September 26 had strongly reacted against the statement made by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shende in New Delhi regarding the issue of ILP urging him to withdraw it.
Shinde in his statement made on September 10 in New Delhi in connection with a Bill passed unanimously in the last session of the Manipur Legislative Assembly session demanding the introduction of ILP System in Manipur, had said, “Our Constitution will not allow such things. Any sensible person who believes in the Constitution will not pass such a bill.”
Responding to a media quarry on the sidelines of the demonstration, MPP president Sanasam Umananda said, “The party being a regional party it is our sole responsibility to safeguard the indigenous people of the state.” Terming the statement of Home Minister Shinde as a contempt of the House, he said it showed disrespectful to the people of the state.
Asking whether it is the policy of the Indian Government to make the Manipuris a died out people by not introducing ILP system in the state, the MPP president announced that the part will launch agitations in all the districts of the state with awareness programme on the ILp system.
Federation of Regional Indigenous Society (FREINDS) president Sapamacha Jadumani, leaders of MPP Youth Front and MPP Mahila were also took part at the protest.

Zeliangrong students condemn violence

DIMAPUR, Oct 4 NNN: Zeliangrong Students’ Union, Delhi has strongly condemned the violence perpetrated on the North Cachar Hills Indigenous Peoples Front (NCHIPF) activists and other peaceful demonstrators by Dimasa “hoodlums” under the patronage of the local authority on September 28. “The NCHIPF rally was a peaceful and democratic protest against the move of Assam […]

DIMAPUR, Oct 4 NNN: Zeliangrong Students’ Union, Delhi has strongly condemned the violence perpetrated on the North Cachar Hills Indigenous Peoples Front (NCHIPF) activists and other peaceful demonstrators by Dimasa “hoodlums” under the patronage of the local authority on September 28. “The NCHIPF rally was a peaceful and democratic protest against the move of Assam State Government to convert Dimasa Hasao to ‘Dimasa Hasao Territorial Council.’ These are not isolated criminal physical assaults and intimidation perpetrated by the Dimasa goons hobnobbing with the State apparatus. These are calculated and premeditated politics of violence unleashed by Dimasa militants and the State to suppress the rightful aspirations of the other indigenous communities living in N.C Hills,” the Zeliangrong Students Union, Delhi alleged.
Dr M Gairiangmei, president of ZSUD alleged that the Assam State Government and the Centre have certain vested interests in appeasing the Dimasas in NC Hills. According to the 2011 Census, Dimasas constitute only 35 percent while the other indigenous communities constitute 65 percent of the NC Hills population, Dr Gairiangmei added. “But the people who constitute only 35 percent of the district has been given free hand to serve the interests of the State. Recently, Assam Government changed the official name of NC Hills District to Dimasa Haso District in order to appease the Dimasas despite strong opposition from the other communities who constitute 65 percent population of the District. The NCHIPF’s genuine demand to roll back the undemocratic decision of the State Government or create another district for the 65 percent population of the district by bifurcating the district has been ignored by the State. Today, as if to mock the democratic aspirations of the 65 percent majority communities, the Centre and the State Government are further considering to appease the minority Dimasas by declaring ‘Dimasa Hasao District’ as a ‘Dimasa Hasao Territorial Council,” Dr M Gairiangmei said.
Terming as short sighted policy of the Central and Assam governments, Dr M Gairiangmei said it was purely to create a ‘Dimasa Hasao Territorial Council’ (DHTC) by carving out large areas of territories belonging to other ethnic communities in NC Hills (Dimasa Hasao District). “If the Centre and Assam State Government wish to create a Territorial Council for the Dimasas let it be on their own territory but not on our territory. We will not hesitate to launch all forms of agitations and exploit all measures possible to expose and scuttle such diabolic and undemocratic politics of Assam State Government and the Centre to pit one community against another in the hope of clinging on to power and suppressing the rightful aspirations of the marginalized tribals in Assam,” he added.
Zeliangrong Students Union, Delhi fully endorses the stand of Zeliangrong Baudi to protect and defend the ancestral land of Zeliangrong people in Assam, Manipur and Nagaland from being used as a pawned in others’ interests. “We fully extend our unstinting support and solidarity to the Zeliangrong Baudi (AMN) and the IPF in their struggle to overcome the challenges of divisive and exploitative policies adopted by Assam State Government and the Centre,” the Zeliangrong Students Union, Delhi pledged.

MNS:- Shri Mukul Wasnik, Minister for Social Justice & Empowerment inaugurated the event “ANTARCHAKSHU – The Eye Within” here today. Speaking on the occasion the Minister said that the event highlights areas of education, financial access and equal employment opportunities. This event will provide the participants insights into the intricacies of the daily lives of the visually impaired. The Minister further added that the Government is taking several steps to see that the life of the Person with Disabilities are in such a manner that they are able to enjoy equal opportunities and equal right with all others. Last year in August we inaugurated the Indian Sign Language Research & Training Centre (ISLRTC) at Indira Gandhi National Open University. We are also going to make our National Institutes in to centers of excellence. We are also in process of setting up of a National Center for barrier free environment and universal design. Such an initiative on similar lines have been taken in the recent past. I look forward for active cooperation from all those who have been working in this sector and I would like to appeal to younger people especially the student community to join hands with us, so that we are able to sensitize the society at large and help in the process of creating an inclusive society. After the inauguration the Minister was the first participant in the activity zone of Antarchaksu and went through the experience being blindfolded. He experienced the challenges of walking on an uneven and obstacle-ridden simulated footpath, finding cities of India on a tactical map, typing with a screen reading software, and the fun of a penalty shootout with an accessible football. The three day event has been organized by the Xavier’s Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged, Mumbai, Equal Opportunity Office of the Jawahar Lal Nehru University, New Delhi, National Institute for the Visually Handicapped, Dehradun, Saksham Trust, New Delhi and Sightsavers. Present on the occasion were Secretary, Department of Disability Affairs, Smt. Stuti Kacker, Joint Secretary, Shri Pankaj Joshi and other dignitaries.

MNS:- The Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal NAK Browne, inaugurated the Directorate of Air Veterans today. The Directorate would be committed to looking after the pensionary and welfare aspects of all retired Air Force personnel. Inaugurating the Directorate, the Air Chief said “It gives me great pleasure to dedicate the new Directorate to the Air Warriors, who have contributed so much to the growth of the IAF. The Directorate would provide value added services to both our retiring as well as retired air warriors and coordinate all aspects, hitherto being handled by different directorates”
The institution of Directorate of Air Veterans is an effort towards bringing under one roof, the various departments dealing with different aspects of Air Veterans, so that, the IAF veterans do not have to approach different agencies for their welfare and pensionary problems. This directorate will function under the Air Officer-in-Charge Administration (AOA), that would be headed by an Air Vice Marshal who looks after the responsibility of Assistant Chief of the Air Staff (Accounts) and would be re-designated as Assistant Chief of the Air Staff (Accounts and Air Veterans) henceforth.
To give focused attention to the needs of Air Veterans, this single window to approach IAF for assistance with respect to pensionary and welfare issues, will deal with various Civil Government departments on matters pertaining to Veterans of the IAF, so that issues affecting them are taken up in a consolidated manner effectively.
The Directorate will also operate through a website called ‘http://iafpensioners.gov.in’ for grievances related to pensionary aspects.
