5th Feb. 2008.
With the onset of President Rule in Nagaland all ethical norms is going the way of the non-existence law in the midst of Law Enforcing Agencies that respect no law which was enforced for the last ten years as part of the Indo-Naga Ceasefire. Shamelessly, the government of India proclaimed President Rule in Nagaland giving reason for breakdown of law and order. This has been ridiculously proved wrong as testified by the present situation, particularly in the commercial hub of Nagaland, Dimapur where the hoodlums and ruffians that has taken the form of a rogue gene but wearing the mask of Naga unification to hoodwink the Naga’s obsession for unification. Realistically, a cruel deception all the way. The president Rule for all practical purpose has come to serve the purpose of strengthening the unification hands of Azheto gang that has gone awry. The abduction spree for ransom by Azheto gang has changed the face of Dimapur as the city of gangster. But with the blessing of the government of India, Azheto gang is taking recourse to smear campaign targeting certain persons of a particular community who have refused to be their partners-in-crime. Fabricating false statement and other planted stories to defend their crumbling façade of unification is now the exercise in futility.
Ironically, the Indian Security forces moving about the town of Dimapur in a typical war-like manner is singing in a different tune now, refusing to honour the Identity Card issued by Ceasefire Monitoring Group (CFMG) and detaining such ID card holders for no sensible reasons given the still existing ceasefire between NSCN and government of India.
This is the new face of the Security Forces under the President Rule. But the question to be answered by the government of India is what is the actual status of the Indo-Naga Ceasefire under the present political scheme of the President Rule?
