Itagar, Jun 13: Re-digging the infamous audio clip issue involving Chief Minister Kalikho Pul for allegedly making derogatory remarks against the Nyishi community, the Nyishi Elite Society (NES) has served a ten-day ultimatum to the state government demanding arrest of all the people involved in the clip.

“Enough is enough. We are seeking for a solution over the vexed issue. With the given inputs in the 1 hour 55 minute audio clip and established channel of the source, the government must arrest all the people involved in the audio discussion within ten days,” a statement from NES president Bengia Tolum said here today.

“There are plenty amount of clues and trails of evidences in the form of sources, audio records, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, persons like Paresh Barua, Vinod Bansal, a New Delhi based businessman with a reference of immovable property in Punjab,” Tolum stated adding, the NES along with ANSU would be forced to jointly spearhead any form of democratic social movement with an appropriate intensity to restore the glory and dignity of the community.

The NES further stated that a series of press releases and press conferences from the day one offering multi-option solution to the vexed issue has been offered from the side of the society but the leadership was always determined to neglect its sentiment.

“Five months time is a sufficient to ponder and address such a volatile issue of emotions and now the leadership must be squarely held responsible,” asserted Tolum further informing that  the society has decided to abide by the resolution/ultimatum at all cost.

He also called upon the constituent members of the community to carry forward the issue with utmost sincerity and patriotism in the best interest of the past glory and future of the community.

The apex organization of the community also called upon all other Nyishi brethrens of the state, particularly, the apex community based organizations (CBOs), heads of all political parties and all 15 Nyishi legislators to exhibit their impartial opinion on the audio record made available to them, stating that such unpleasant emotiol circumstances may befall on any other tribes in the future.
