Against Assam Rifles attack, Nagas in Tamenglong held a protest

Imphal: The Nagas residing in Manipur’s Tamenglong and Noney districts bordering Assam and Nagaland in the northwestern parts on Saturday started boycotting activities of the Assam Rifles in protest against the alleged “indiscriminate firing” on innocent womenfolk.

This move came after the Rongmei Naga Council Manipur (RNCM), the apex body of the Rongmei tribe in the region, successfully imposed a six-hour total shutdown in these districts on Friday.

Reportedly, the boycott decision was made in the jurisdictions inhabited by different Naga communities belonging to the Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei, and Inpui Naga.

The RNCM also accused the 6 Assam Rifles of “bringing an atmosphere of fragile peace” in the area by gun firing into the air to disperse the innocent womenfolk following tussles at Makuai (Atengba) village in Tamenglong district.

The Naga women restricted the movements of the central paramilitary personnel at Chingkao village where village volunteers considering the circumstances faced by other communities in the state were undergoing physical training at around 9 am on Thursday.

Perpetrated by 6 AR as “crazy, inhuman, selfish and cowardly”, the RNCM stated that being in a democratic country, the security forces should pay respect to the sentiments of the ethnic people.

Further, it accused the 6 AR of “bringing an atmosphere of terrorism instead of peace”.
