Dimapur, Aug 31: Expressing serious concerns over the unabated and the unchecked influx of illegal immigrants to Nagaland, the Central Nagaland Tribes Council (CNTC) today has asked the Nagaland Government to start acting before the indigenous population is swallowed by the illegal immigrants.
Pointing to the Ministry of Home Affair’s directive to identify and deport all illegal immigrants from the State, the CNTC, in a press note, said the lackadaisical attitude of the State agencies has failed in protecting vulnerable indigenous population of the State. It further asked all tribal hohos, civil societies, student organisations and churches to join them to “curb this menace.”
It also raised concern on the random issuance of driving license, aadhar cards, PAN cards, etc. by respective authorities and on the issuance of the Permanent Residence Certificates by GBs/Chairmen. As directed by the Centre, it asked the Nagaland Government to be serious and set up a task force in State and district level and identify all illegal immigrants and deport them at the earliest.
