ITAGAR, Feb 13: The NSCN (R) has decided to exempt house taxes and ration taxes from the people of Tirap, Changlang and Longding district of Aruchal Pradesh with immediate effect.

The outfit in a press statement informed here on Friday that it had directed all NSCN (R) commanders to strictly adhere by this order and asked them to be ‘vigilant against any member or cadres who will indulge in any kind of such collection from the villagers’. It cautioned that ‘prompt and stringent action’ will be initiated against any member/s found acting against the order.

The NSCN (R) stated that various groups and organization for the past several years have mercilessly exploited the gas living here.

“The successive State and the Central government had also failed miserably to give adequate support to uplift the life and economy of the people,” it added.

The people in these three districts, it lamented, “hardly live for themselves or in other words hardly find time to think, work or do for themselves or their children.”

“On and above their pathetic and battered economic situation arising out of the lackadaisical and step motherly attitude of the State government, they would witness a patrol team from one or the other NSCN group every other day,” the NSCN (R) said.

“In between the Indian security forces would also give their attendance leading to lot of commotion making the life of the people really-really pathetic and a living hell on earth,” it added.

The NSCN (R) further appealed to all ga political groups “to be lenient and if possible they should also exempt the gas in these three districts of house tax and other form of taxes which will be a very major relief to the local populace.”
