NSCN (IM) lashes out at Centre over 'tax' issue

DIMAPUR, June 26 : Reacting strongly to the reported directive of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), government of India to the government of Nagaland to stop the NSCN-IM from levying tax on common people, the Naga outfit has warned that in the event of any unwanted situation that may emerge from the statement of the MHA, then the government of India will be held responsible.

"The National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN) has taken a very critical stand of the press reportage that appeared in the media captioned 'Centre asks Nagaland government to stop NSCN (I-M) levying tax' wherein the Director (NE) JPN Singh of the Government of India (GoI) Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has blatantly accused the NSCN of the increase in price on commodities and violation of the Cease-fire ground rules. The Director also had created an unwarranted "Threat perception" scenario and went on board to question if NSCN was the Naga political organization mandated to represent the Nagas," the Naga outfit stated.

The Home Ministry Director (NE) JPN Singh, in his letter, said NSCN (I-M) has been arrogating itself the responsibility of finding political solution on behalf of the Nagas in general of which it clearly is not the sole representative. The outfit is not only not observing the cease fire ground rules, but also violating all the existing laws, rules and regulations, Home Ministry Director (NE) said.

The Action Committee Against Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) while being concerned about the tax issues must seriously consider the deep rooted conspiracy orchestrated by the state and its apparatus, it said and added that the NSCN is equally concerned with the issue which has been made sufficiently clear by the organization and we will leave no stone unturned to curb all forms of illegal taxation by the state and its appendix.
