DIMAPUR, Oct 30 - Two anti-graft groups in�Nagaland � Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) and�Nagaland�Voluntary Consumers Organisation (NVCO) � today said the�Nagaland Government and the institutional authorities have failed to check growing corruption, forcing the people to take to the streets.
The public action committee of the Naga Council Dimapur will hold a public rally at Khermahal here tomorrow in protest against illegal tax collection by various agencies.
It has directed all business establishments in Dimapur town to down shutters till 12 noon on Wednesday.
In its statement, the ACAUT alleged that the issue of illegal collection persists with the patronage of the�Nagaland�Government.
It said the State Government�s inability to combat the issue of unabated taxation and effectively address the issue of the common people has left the public with no choice but to take to the streets and protest.
�Public street protest is a sign of the Government�s failure,� the group said. It also urged the State Government to alleviate the woes and daily struggles of the common people.
