Arunachal Govt urged to talk with NSCN (K)

By The Assam Tribune

ITANAGAR, March 16 � Concerned over the recent letter issued by NSCN (K) to all the legislators of insurgency-hit Tirap and Changlang districts in Arunachal Pradesh, an organisation has urged the State Government to start a dialogue process with various rebel outfits operating in these districts.

The letter, reportedly signed by NSCN (K) chief S S Khaplang, directed all the 12 MLAs to withdraw support from the Dorjee Khandu Government or else face dire consequences.

�The government cannot and must not continue to ignore the burgeoning problem for which developmental activities in the districts have come to a screeching halt,� the Society for Promotion of Nocte Indigenous Culture (SoPNIC) said in a communique.

It added, �Whenever there is firing between both the factions of NSCN or army operations, leaders of all hues and heads of work departments run away, leaving the common people to fend for themselves. Needless to say such practice only aggravates the problem as no one is left in the district to address them�. � PTI

They urged the NSCN (K) to withdraw the letter and requested it to resort to other democratic means to hammer out the differences amicably.

�This letter has done what killings, kidnappings, extortions, etc., in Tirap district for the last many years could not do. It has awakened the conscience of the people of the State at long last. The strongly worded letter has shaken and trampled the very foundation of our democratic setup,� it said. � PTI
