This incident came when people in Nagaland State are intensely discussing the “illegal immigration” issue after a Naga family was assaulted by some non-locals reportedly by a group of “illegal immigrants” in Dimapur last month.
In this regard, several organizations based at Chumukedima in Dimapur have asked the families of the accused in the September 21 incident to leave Dimapur district by October 4, 2017 .
Few days ago, the influential Nagaland Tribes Council (NTC) had expressed its concern alleging that “illegal immigrants” had assaulted a “Naga family” at Chumukedima in Dimapur on September 21.NTC also said that there is a “huge presence of illegal and foreign Nationals” in the State of Nagaland.
In a statement, “the daring” assault of a Naga family in Chumukedima area by “illegal immigrants” recently is a matter of concern .
“Though it was just a stray incident, it speaks volumes of what is ready to happen to the sons of the soil anytime in Nagaland,” NTC said .
According to NTC, the “fragility” of the local Nagas, the “mercantile attitude” of the authorities on ground and the lack of political will of people in authority contribute to namesake governance.
“It is therefore not surprising for the intruders to take advantage of the vulnerable citizens and lackadaisical and the inefficient Government indulges in nefarious activities at their whims,” NTC added.
