Nagalim: Request to Re-establish NSCN-IM Office

A number of Naga student and civil society organizations have requested that the local governor re-establishes the office of the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah) at Phungreitang. A memorandum was sent requesting action within 24 hours in regards to the situation. 

Below is an article published by The Hindu: 

Five organisations of Naga students and civil societies have submitted a memorandum to Governor Vinod Kumar Duggal urging him to allow the functioning of the regional office of National Socialist Council of Nagalim (Isak-Muivah) at Phungreitang in Ukhrul district as usual. The memorandum was submitted to Collector Modak Rishikesh Arvind on Monday evening [14 July 2014] for submission to the Governor.

The memo sets a deadline of 24 hours to the Governor to translate into action. Discussions had already been started among the Naga organisations to launch various forms of agitations if their demand is not met, the memo said.

Following the killing of Ngalangzar Malui, a member of the autonomous district council, the government has rushed additional forces to launch search operations. They have arrested eight cadres of the NSCN(IM) from the regional camp. Later they wrapped up the office.
