Imphal, August 09 2011:
The Naga Youth Front (NYF) has raised strong objection against the alleged communal design of SPF Government led by O Ibobi regarding the demand for creation of Sadar Hills district by bifurcating Senapati district without taking into consideration Naga people's sentiments.
Any attempt of the State Government to instigate communal tension among the people in the hill districts would not tolerated, said NYF in a press release.
The demand has the hand of the State Government to directly challenge the Naga's aspiration for 'honorable and peaceful solution' .
The hand-in-glove game of the present State Government and some tribal organizations to encourage divide and rule policy among the tribal people is clearly visible by the incidents witnessed during the present situation, it asserted.
With the law and order situation given a free hand to the bandh supporters and mobs, the Nagas have concluded that the Government is anti-Naga and fully communal, it alleged.
When emergency medical needs, essential goods and stranded passengers are not able to access NH-39 due to the bandh, the State Government continues to find options on NH-53 and Jessami road in Ukhrul with full security.
The ruthless and killing machine of CM O Ibobi and DGP Joykumar, the Manipur Commandos and IRBs, seem to have missed the "Cabinet Decision" to open the NH-39 to the general public, while these forces are hyperactive to kill and suppress the Nagas during their peaceful demonstrations on many occasions.
To the Nagas, land and identity are concomitant that cannot be parted as these two elements are integral and indispensible.
"Any parting of our land will be tantamount to loss of our cultural heritage.
Every river, mountains forest, stream, valley are part and parcel of the Nagas which are identical to the people" the NYF claimed.
In the name of development and progress, creation of new structures in one's courtyard is purely encroachment, exploitation, suppression and demeaning of the rightful of ownership of the Nagas.
Demand and creation of SHDDC are constitutional rights but forfeiting and annexing other's land is not justifiable and gross violation of universal rights, it said.
"The progressive and righteous Naga Youth Front (NYF) will fight tooth and nail to the last man", the NYF declared.
Any attempt of the present State Government under O.Ibobi Singh to give away the lands of the Nagas will be very grave and rife, it warned.
