Centre to involve NE states on Naga accord as controversy continues

AITF asks Centre to come clean on NSCN (IM) deal while BJP welcomes

New Delhi, Aug 8: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today promised to consult North Eastern states in finalisation of the details of the peace accord signed with NSCN(IM) last week, Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh said here today amid a controversy over the issue.

The Manipur Chief Minister as also his Nagaland counterpart T R Zeliang separately met the Prime Minister here during which the issue related to the Naga peace accord was discussed.

A similar assurance was given to Zeliang who was accompanied by his Home Minister Y Patton during the meeting with Modi, sources in the state government said.

The Prime Minister's assurance comes against the backdrop of attack by Congress President Sonia Gandhi on him, saying that North East Chief Ministers were not consulted on the Naga peace accord.

The Manipur Chief Minister, along with his counterparts in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, had protested for not having consulted the neighbouring states of Nagaland before signing the initial accord with NSCN-IM on Monday.

The NSCN-IM, which had given up its original demand of sovereignty a few years ago, has been asking for integration of Naga-inhabited areas in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam. All three states are opposed to the outfit's demand.

The Arunachal Indigenous Tribes Forum (AITF), a conglomeration of all the apex tribal community based organisations (CBOs) of Arunachal Pradesh urged the Govt of India to clarify the contents and the other terms of the peace accord with NSCN (IM).

The affected people of Arunachal Pradesh have every right to know as some territorial areas of the eastern Arunachal Pradesh shares borders with the Nagaland, said a press statement.

“We are aware of the fact that one of the long drawn pending demand of the NSCN (IM) faction has been for creation of Greater Nagalim comprising Naga inhabited areas of the Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh with the present State of Nagaland”.  

Though there is no clear indication whether the Govt. of India has accepted the demand of NSCN (IM) for Greater Nagalim, AITF wanted to know the status of the territorial integrity of Assam, Arunachal and Manipur.

Signing peace accords without wider consultation of the concerned State Govts and its citizens will create more problems as it would hurt the sentiment of the affected people of the region and it also affects the territorial interest of three states with reference to the Greater Nagalim demand of the NSCN (IM), it added. It further wanted to know why the contents of the accord have not been put in public domain.

Meanwhile, AITF appealed other NGOs and citizens of Arunachal Pradesh to check the factual contents of the accord before welcoming it as it may go against the territorial interest of our own State.

AITF further stated that it is too early for the Indigenous Faith and Cultural Society of Arunachal Pradesh (IFCSAP) to welcome the NSCN (IM) and Govt. of India peace accord signed on 3rd August 2015 without knowing the factual content and terms of references of the accord.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Arunachal Pradesh has welcomed the peace accord signed between Central govt. and NSCN (IM) saying that it marks an end to the insurgent problem of almost 6 decades. “This agreement would be ensuring peace and harmony and stability impetus given to development of the region considering the sentiments of the people of Nagaland and its neighbouring states, which would pave the way for rapid economic development of the region.” The BJP state unit further said the peace accord will also pave the way for solving the problems of other insurgent groups operating in the region.  Referring to the remarks of AICC President Sonia Gandhi, the state BJP said “It is astonishing that the Sonia Gandhi is playing partisan politics on the peace accord terming it an insult to the state Congress government, whereas the State Chief Minister, Nabam Tuki had reportedly welcomed the peace accord.” The BJP further said the AICC which failed to attend Naga (problem) and addressing root causes of the development isolation to the NE states could have been the part of solution to these problems.

Illegal mining of river minerals degrading environment

[ Maihu Mamai ]

CHANGLANG, Aug 8: Mining of minor minerals like pebbles, sand shingles and boulder at the Tirap River has been going on unscrupulously for over 15 years. The matter is getting from bad to worse with at least six stone crusher machines being active in Changlang division. The crushers need a constant supply of stones. However, none of these stone crusher units have acquired valid licenses from the state government or NOC from the Geo Appraisal Committee, strange enough some of these units even got electrified through RGGVY.

Despite the 2013, National Green Tribunal (NGT) order clearly stating that mining of minor minerals in rivers without environmental clearances from Ministry of Environment and Forest is illegal, the owners of these stone crushers, driven by greed engage profit mongering non-APST contractors who readily pay a minimal amount from Rs. 30000 to 50000 depending upon the area to villagers as a lease money for quarrying season, whereas the income generated by stone crushers exceeds Rs.10 lakhs per month even after paying royalty to the state exchequer.

Excavators and dumper trucks plying day and night on the riverbanks are constantly degrading the environment. Such unmitigated exploitation of natural resources has destroyed the habitat of many aquatic lives besides, flora and fauna of the Tirap river.  Moreover, people living in the proximity of these stone crushers have also cited health related problems due to constant noise and stone dust pollution. Recently, in the wake of strong public complaints, the Changlang district administration decided to put a blanket ban on 2 two units of stone crushers at Namtok circle in March this year.
