Dimapur, June 18: The ACAUT Nagaland has given three days time to the NSCN (IM) to come out clean on whether the outfit is responsible for stopping the Dimapur-Kohima 4-lane works.  

In a press release, the ACAUT sought reply from the NSCN (IM) on two points: On whether the NSCN (IM) had demanded tax from the contractors involved in 4-laning of Asian Highway-1, and if yes, whether it's the policy of the IM to stop all developmental works in Nagaland pending final settlement of its peace-talks with the GoI.

"Or whether rogue NSCN-IM elements were involved in stopping the 4-lane works? If yes, what action is to be taken against such rogue IM cadres? And whether they would expose all these rogue elements with their complete identity and designations so that people of Nagaland know who these anti-people are?"

ACAUT said in case the NSCN-IM fails to give its reply within the stipulated time, then the automatic conclusion would be that the NSCN-IM "does not want Nagaland people to enjoy fruits of development."

In case the problem persists, the ACAUT would be forced to appeal to appropriate authorities having unpleasant consequences, it said. 

ACAUT also requested both Maytas-Gayatri and NCSU not to stop their works under any circumstances and ensure "this life line road for Nagas" is not jeopardized. It reminded that workmanship and quality should not be compromised at any cost.

ACAUT also urged the State government not to remain a mute spectator and at least assure the Naga public that works will not be affected by giving press release to the effect. 

In the meantime, the ACAUT said it stands with the previous resolution of the Western Angami Public Organization that no entity shall be allowed to disturb the 4-laning of AH-1 under any circumstances and called upon every citizen of Nagaland to safeguard and ensure that no hindrances is given for swift completion of the 4-lane road.

The ACAUT Nagaland also urged the Working Group of the 6 NPGs to give a public undertaking to the Nagaland people that the 4-laning works under AH-1, Nagaland sector, shall not be disturbed by taxation demands under any circumstances.
