People’s dialogue on border

Kohima, Aug. 7: The Naga organisations will hold a “peoples’ dialogue” on the border issue between Nagaland and Assam at Town Hall in Dimapur tomorrow.

Irked by the state government’s inability to resolve the border issue with Assam, this dialogue has been initiated by the United Naga Tribes Association of Border Areas.

The Nagas have been demanding to resolve the issue through historical perspective, while the state government insisted solution outside the court settlement, the Assam government wanted to resolve it through the court.

“The association is aware that the present border issue between Nagaland and Assam is a relic of historical injustices starting from the British colonial policy of divide and rule and the Centre’s unwillingness to address the issue,” a member of the group, Hukavi Yepthomi, said.

The association was hopeful that through the participation of the government, NGOs, Naga civil societies, intellectuals and stakeholders, this peoples’ dialogue would bring about much needed tangible propositions towards the resolution of the border issue between Assam and Nagaland.

Attendance: The state government has taken serious note of the poor attendance of employees in government departments in the state.

A meeting, chaired by chief secretary Banuo Z. Jamir last evening at the secretariat, deliberated at length on poor attendance of the officers and staff in the offices.
