KOHIMA, DEC 3 (NPN): A ministerial team led by Planning & Coordination minister Neiba Kronu and comprising horticulture and border affairs adviser Mhathung Yanthan, commissioner M Patton, AIG R Kikon, Phek district and police officials visited Khezhakeno village on Tuesday to take stock of the situation following a clash between Khezhakeno and Tungjoy villagers on November 29. It may be recalled villagers of Tungjoy had reportedly burnt down arrangements made by Khezhakeno villagers to observe “People Festival” from December 1 late on November 29 night. Speaking to Nagaland

Post, Kronu said as per the relevant document available and upon verification of the site that the villagers planned to use for festival belonged solely to Nagaland and there was no dispute. He said the team would submit its report to the State government as the matter had to be taken up at the highest political level. During the British time itself, the minister said a pillar was erected, adding it was not a disputed area. He said it was unfortunate that the festival had been disturbed. He said he had instructed Phek deputy commissioner to submit report to commissioner without delay as the matter was of grave concern.

Yanthan joined the minister in claiming that there was enough documentary evidence favouring Khezhakeno village, pointing out the documents signed between chief secretaries of Manipur and Nagaland had clearly stated that it was a settled case. So, it was unfortunate that the incident took place that way, he added. He said the issue had to be settled amicably and the villagers had to live peacefully as good neighbours. Meanwhile, according to Chakhesang Youth Front general secretary, this was the second such incident of villagers from neighbouring Manipur creating causing problem. A ministerial team from Manipur had also visited Tungjoy village on December 1. CYF alleges trespassing, arson: Chakhesang Youth Front (CYF) has strongly condemned what it called the “utterly despicable, devious and cowardly acts” of miscreants allegedly belonging to Tungjoy village under Senapati district, Manipur.

Black-market in sand JAF agitation paralyses state govt offices Union Tourism minster, AR Rahman to grace Hornbill due to halt in supply Wants govt’s Staff Reporter

DIMAPUR, DEC 3 (NPN): There has been no supply of sand from nearby Karbi Anglong for about a month at a time when a boom in construction work has begun especially during dry winter months. This has created a black-market for sand for which end-users have to pay through their nose. It was learnt that the non-supply of sand from Karbi Anglong, from where all of the requirements were made, was due to some issue between the sand suppliers and stockists. A truck load of superior coarse sand( Koilamati) containing some 450 cft which used to cost Rs.25,000 is being sold clandestinely at Rs.30-32,000 according to transporters. The lowest grade sand from Lungi that used to be sold for Rs.16,000 per

truck(450 cft) now commands Rs.22-25,000. Sand from Pathradisa, Upper Deopani, Lungi are not available due to the price issue between suppliers at the mahals in Karbi Anglong and the stockists at Dimapur. The sources said the issue was over the rate hikes by suppliers on one hand and the demand made by some NPGs, though this could not be confirmed. However, the stand-off has only caused much resentment among house builders who feel that they are being fleeced with impunity. Some house builders feel that once the stocked sand in Dimapur is exhausted, there could be some hope that the stalemate would be resolved. However, till then the price of sand continues to rise astronomically but illogically and almost making it cost as much as Rs.1.5 per kg approximately.

The four associations reportedly with more than 6,000 employees, including district and directorate ministerial staff, prison staff and nurses, are currently on a mass casual leave. However, nurses and prison staff have been partially relaxed from the purview based on humanitarian ground. Meanwhile, JAF has announced that it was not in a position to call off its agitation

without any assurance from the State government on its “genuine” demand. JAF members met the secretary finance (RoP cell) and shared their grievances, to which the latter reportedly gave a patient hearing and informed them the same would be conveyed to the government.

India and India of Bapu’s dreams”. Every visitor entering the hall experiences a fully digitalised environment with latest technology, which has been arranged by Tagbin Services Pvt Ltd, a leading experiential marketing company that designs and executes experiential spaces like museums, experience centres and events

and shows. The visitors can pay floral tribute to Gandhiji by just pressing a button, view his entire life and struggles during India’s freedom movement, world leaders inspired by his principles, etc, on a giant smart TV screen by simply pressing a button on the screen itself. With the motive to

create mass awareness on Clean India to fulfil Gandhiji’s dream and also as part of the Central government’s initiatives under Swachh Bharat, the giant digital screen has been installed with special software, even as the initiative discourages use of singleuse plastic and promotes segregation of wet and dry waste. There is also a live screen play where visitors can see how to do waste management in front of the giant screen. More than 60,000 people have already taken vow not to use single-use plastic till Tuesday, even as the organiser informed Nagaland Post that its target was to make 10 lakh people take the vow by the end of Hornbill Festival, which would create a sense of responsibility towards the cleanliness initiative.

of the letter from the government, its coordinating body and action committees from all associations held an emergency meeting at CANSSEA conference hall on Monday and unanimously decided not to call off the ongoing agitation as the government had totally rejected its “genuine demand”. JAF urged the finance secretary to reconsider the government decision on its demand at the earliest, after which it would call off the agitation.

NEW DELHI, DEC 3 (NPN): State-run oil marketing companies on Tuesday chose to keep the retail prices of petrol and diesel stagnant for the second successive day across major cities of the country. In Dimapur, petrol price stood at Rs 72.85 per litre while diesel was retailing at Rs 63.65 per litre. In the state capital, a litre of petrol and diesel was Rs. 73.66 and Rs.64.28 respectively. Currently, oil marketing companies such as staterun Indian Oil Corporation review the domestic prices of petrol and diesel on a daily basis. Any changes, based on the international rates of crude oil and rupeedollar foreign exchange, are implemented at the fuel stations with effect from 6 am.

Assam Rifles (AR) always held “grudge” against it, by pointing at the recent raid on December 3 by tje 5th AR on the rented houses of its members at Kuda Village (Nagarjan) and NST Colony (City Tower) areas and the arrest of one Ninghor from NST Colony. MIP opined that AR was emboldened to go against NSCN(I-M) after Cease Fire Monitoring Group (CFMG) chairman Lt Gen (retd) Shokin Chauhan’s communication to Union home joint secretary on October 30, regarding closure of messes/offices of Naga political groups (NPGs). NSCN(I-M) said it had raised objection against the closures. MIP alleged that the CFMG chairman had hatched a “sinister plot” with AR. Therefore, MIP said NSCN (I-M) wanted to

AR to go after it when final touches were being given to solve the Naga political issue. Further, it said the answer lay with Chauhan, which it said, had seriously put at stake sincerity of the talks between the two entities and wondered whether this was a policy to chase Nagas away further. MIP said it was unfortunate that the incident had taken place despite NSCN having intimated to the CFMG chairman to establish “corrective measure” from his end and the Indian armed personnel, after Kohima and other incidents of ceasefire ground rules violations committed by Indian security forces against NSCN members. NSCN(I-M) said it strongly objected to such high-handed actions of AR at the behest of the CFMG chairman. K Y M C

KDCC reacts to NGRC-1CU statement DIMAPUR: Kohima District Congress Committee (KDCC) on Tuesday said it was “dumbfounded” at the Nagaland Government Registered Class-1 Contractors Union (NGRC-1CU) urging the state government to issue a directive to disqualify contractor who quotes below the Schedule of Rates (SOR) during the tender process. In a press statement, KDCC president Kevi Vizo said it regarded members of NGRC-1CU as seasoned and high level contractors in the State,

who were capable of filing tenders much beyond the SOR. But opined that they should consider the apathy of young contractors and others who were willing to give service below the SOR, which will save the public fund meant for developmental works. In this regard, KDCC appealed NGRC-1CU to reconsider for the future of the young Naga entrepreneurs. Meanwhile, KDCC said considering the welfare of the upcoming young Nagas venturing into con-

tract and entrepreneurship, it has been fighting against the state Government departments notifying that tenders quoted below the SOR will not be acceptable. This led to the recent cancellation of e-Procurement Notice Invitation for Bids (IFB) issued by Urban Development department. KDCC further affirmed that it will continued to take the issue and leave no stone unturned in the event of any such measures adopted by any government departments.

which is the problem and not the person with disabilities” he said while addressing the ‘World Disability Day or International Day of Persons with Disabilities’ programme as special guest at Highland Park (below IG Stadium) Kohima. He promised that the state government, through the Social Welfare department, would do their best to look into the activities of PwDs. Toy also hoped to see participation of PwDs in the decision making bodies in the future. State commissioner for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) Diethono Nakhro said people with disabilities were yet to be a natural part of the development agenda of Nagaland despite many development programmes and activities happening

on a regular basis. She lamented the PwDs still had to gatecrash in order to voice for their rights and be part of the system. Speaking on the theme “promoting the participation of person with disabilities and their leadership”, Nakhro said the objective was to empower PwDs for inclusive, equitable and sustainable development as anticipated in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which pledges to ‘leave no one behind’. She said the focus was also to promote the rights and wellbeing of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to create awareness in political, social, economic and cultural life. She further asserted that PwDs were not asking for charity or

anyone’s good deed ticket to heaven, but asking for their rights as equal citizens. The programme was also attended by commissioner & secretary Social Welfare, Sarah R. Ritse and director, social welfare T. Atoli Sema as special invitees. The event was jointly organised by Social Welfare department, Nagaland Parents Association for the Disabled (NAPAD) and State Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities.

Maoists restricted to few areas in Jharkhand: Modi

Ranchi, Dec 3 (IANS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that the Maoists have been restricted to a few areas in Jharkhand by the BJP government in the state in the last five years. “Maoists’ backbone has been hit by the BJP in last five years.

of the state. Their agenda is to again plunder the natural resources of the state. They are trying to create confusion and fear among people. Beware of them,” said Modi. He said “I hope you will expose the lie of Congress and JMM and chose the ‘double engine’ BJP government”. Modi targeted the Congress and its allies for not revoking Article 370 and keeping the Ram temple

dispute pending. “What we had promised is now reflecting on the ground”. “When Lord Ram left home he was ‘Rajkumar’ (prince) and when he returned after 14 years he became ‘Maryada Purushottam’. It was tribal people who helped Ram,” said Modi. He said “It was Atal Bihar Vajpayee government which created separate Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh states for tribal people. It was Vajpayee government which created separate tribal affairs ministry. BJP has done lots of work in tribal areas which was neglected by the Congress and JMM and left them to fend for themselves”. “The teenage (19) is important in life of a person. Jharkhand is also 19-yearsold. Lets come develop it together for better future,” said Modi.

Midday meal shocker: rat cooked in ‘dal’ in UP

Muzaffarnagar, Dec 3 (IANS): At least 10 children were hospitalized on Tuesday after they were fed ‘dal’ which had a dead rat in it during the midday meal in a government school. The meal, meant for students between Class 6 and 8, had been prepared by an NGO called Jan Kalyan Sanstha Committee which is based in Hapur. A teacher who consumed the food along with the children has also been hospitalized. All the students and the teacher were later discharged from the hospital. According to reports, the dead rat was found at the bottom of the vessel in which the ‘urad dal’ had been cooked. “By that time, many of the students had already eaten the food and had started vomiting,” said a student. Talking to reporters after the incident Ram Sagar Tripathi, a local education official, called the shocking incident an example of “carelessness”. He said, “The Jan Kalyan Sanstha Vikas Committee prepares the food for the mid-day meal scheme. Today, there was a dead rat in the dal. We stopped

‘India watching China’s presence in Indian Ocean’

New Delhi, Dec 3 (IANS): India is keenly watching China’s increasing presence in the Indian Ocean region, Indian Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh said on Tuesday, assuring that India is capable of thwarting any threat. Addressing a press conference here ahead of the Navy Day celebrations on December 4, Singh said: “China has increased presence in the Indian Ocean since 2008. We are keenly watching them.” “There are Chinese oceanographic research vessels in the exclusive economic zone. On an average seven to eight vessels are present near this zone. They are here sometimes to carry out mining, sometime as anti-piracy squad,” said Singh, adding that the Indian Navy carries out whatever prompt action is needed. Admiral Karambir Singh also stressed that the India Navy is fully aware about Pakistan’s intention in the Indian Ocean region. “We also know about the intelligence input about that terror groups planning to enter India through sea routes. We have put an adequate defence mechanism to thwart any threats,” Singh said.

serving it as soon as it was detected. Nine children had already consumed the dal and were taken to hospital.” The official said action would be initiated against

the NGO concerned. In recent weeks the UP government has made headlines, for all the wrong reasons, with its mid-day meal scheme. Last week, a video

from the Sonebhadra district showed a cook at a mid-day meal kitchen mixing one litre of milk with a bucket of water for 81 children in the school. In September, students of a government school in Mirzapur district were seen in a video being served roti with salt during the midday meal. The website of the Uttar Pradesh MidDay Meal Authority, the overseeing body for these meals in the state, describes an elaborate menu that is supposed to be served to the children at the staterun primary schools. It includes pulses, rice, rotis and vegetables. Fruits and milk are included on certain days, according to the meal chart. These meals are supposed to provide a minimum of 450 calories to each child every day and must include at least 12 g rams of protein and should be served to every child at least 200 days a year. According to the state government, it has provided mid-day meals in more than 1.5 lakh primary and middle schools across the state and more than one crore children are supposed to benefit from the scheme.

Tale of shortages


nions are known to cause tears but for consumers throughout India, they are shedding tears because of onion prices which have shot up to Rs 90-100 in most Indian states. In some cities, onion prices are peaking at Rs 120-130 per kilo such as in Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai, Odisha, and Pune. The average price of onions increased because the supply of early kharif onion crops was hit badly by unseasonal rain, an APMC official said. Despite various measures having been put in place by the state and Central governments prices have been on fire and imports are now being made to cool down the retail level spike. According to reports, shortfall in supply and also the mishandling of the buffer stock by the government’s APMC has led to sky rocketing of onion prices. The other is said to be excessive rain in key onion producing states across country such as Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar which has caused shortfall in supply. Another reason for price hike is believed to be the delay in the arrival of monsoon, which in turn delayed sowing. This resulted in a cascading effect on arrival in the mandis. The situation has led to illegal hoarding by unscrupulous traders. The illegal hoarding of onion ahead of the festive season is also one of the major reasons. Many traders in Delhi resorted to large-scale, pre-festival hoarding, a fact that the Delhi government acknowledged at a review meeting. As per statistics, onion Production has gone down by 50% in the year 2019. If the government data on onion production from the past 5 years are analysed, it can be seen that the onion production in 2019 nearly halved in comparison to 2018. In the past five years, the total onion production in all of India in September, on average, was 6 to 6.5 lakh metric tonnes which were sold at an average price of Rs. 10-20 per kg for the customer. The government’s decision to ban onion exports and impose stock limits may have arrested the steep rise in prices of the essential vegetable, but experts feel it’s more of a knee-jerk response that hurts farmers rather than resolving the country’s onion mess. The central government as well as various state governments do not appear to have learnt a lesson from the recent acute shortage of tomatoes during July-August. Wholesale tomato prices had touched Rs 70 per kilo in end-July, on the back of a severe supply shortage in vegetable mandis. In certain markets, tomatoes competed with pears and apples, selling at retail prices in excess of Rs 140 per kilo. The rise in tomato prices bares the hardships and uncertainties faced by vegetable farmers for several years. Pestilence, lower prices, weak supply chains, depleting yield, poor quality seeds and seedlings, climate change have all spurred them to switch crops for good, from decades of cultivating tomatoes to sugarcane, maize, soya, cauliflower, even grapes. Market experts say the central government has failed to develop infrastructure to help farmers producing perishable vegetables. Agriculture directly and indirectly occupies 70 percent of India’s workforce but comprises only 14 percent of the GDP. Despite this topsy-turvy fiscality, the country’s policymakers have long disdained agriculture as development’s poorer cousin. This is the spark that has ignited shortages.

DailyDevotion “Not by Might nor by Power”

My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power… —1 Corinthians 2:4

If in preaching the gospel you substitute your knowledge of the way of salvation for confidence in the power of the gospel, you hinder people from getting to reality. Take care to see while you proclaim your knowledge of the way of salvation, that you yourself are rooted and grounded by faith in God. Never rely on the clearness of your presentation, but as you give your explanation make sure that you are relying on the Holy Spirit. Rely on the certainty of God’s redemptive power, and He will create His own life in people. Once you are rooted in reality, nothing can shake you. If your faith is in experiences, anything that happens is likely to upset that faith. But nothing can ever change God or the reality of redemption. Base your faith on that, and you are as eternally secure as God Himself. Once you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you will never be moved again. That is the meaning of sanctification. God disapproves of our human efforts to cling to the concept that sanctification is merely an experience, while forgetting that even our sanctification must also be sanctified (see John 17:19). I must deliberately give my sanctified life to God for His service, so that He can use me as His hands and His feet.

Can Art 371(A) survive under Pan Naga Hoho(PNH)?


t is reliably learnt that the NSCN(IM) has proposed the establishment of Pan Naga Hoho (PNH) as a major agenda in its negotiation with the GoI. So far as I know the purpose of the PNH is of a cultural organisation of all the Nagas irrespective of the States they do inhabit. How PNH can be constituted? In my speculation, PNH will be composed of the tribal representatives of all the Naga tribes. It will be the proportionate tribal represented body irrespective of the size of the population of each tribe. Eventually it will be the proportionately disproportionate Hoho for the fact that when a tribe has just 15000 population it will have equal voting right with that of a tribe having 2/3 lakh population. Therefore, it will be the replica of the Naga ‘Haha’ if not worst. The legal powers of PNH: According to Hebron: 21 September, 2019...Part 11 by Mr. Khekiye K. Sema, IAS (Rtd) published on 5.10.2019, the PNH will be a supra ‘Statuary’ Hoho as per the Competency Clause of NSCN(IM). The meaning of ‘Statuary’ (noun) according to my Franklin Dictionary is the art of making statues. In other words, PNH will be a super body to make laws and rules as I understand the implication if at all the PNH is made to be a component of the agreement. When the PNH is empowered to make new laws, it will have equal power to amend the existing laws. Secondly, the PNH is to have ‘advisory authority over Education and Development matters’ as disclosed. If at all, in the agreement the PNH is equipped with what are desired, what subject that relates to the welfare of the State of Nagaland will not be placed under


the supra PNH? Nothing else as for Nagaland will be left outside the purview of the PNH when the PNH will have advisory role on education and Developments. Literally speaking, the State Govt. of Nagaland will then become the secondary authority to PNH for the justification that the GoI has approved the formation of PNH by which it will claim that it has the legal sanction from Parliament of India. Funding: The PNH is going to be funded by GoI when approved. In the context of the Nagas, money is power. The PNH will therefore eventually emerge to be the power house and the centre of attraction of all hue. The Nagas of Nagaland in particular will flock to be the sycophant of PNH at the cost of legal protective and indigenous rights. The InterState Legal Structure: The PNH will become the Inter-State Legal Authority which will exercise its extraordinary role of administering the affairs of all the Naga inhabited areas in not less than 4 States. Yet, without land integration of the Naga inhabited areas, it is doubtful about the cooperation of those States neighbouring Nagaland to the proposed PNH. It becomes obvious for the fact that a State cannot have two parallel authorities to run its affairs, and therefore it is very unlikely that other States neighbouring Nagaland will welcome the PNH. When so, the PMH will confine to the State of Nagaland. Ultimately, the affairs of the State of Nagaland will be handled by all the Nagas from Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam along with the indigenous Nagas of Nagaland without land integration. The legal implication of the Inter-State Legal Structure:

Firstly, let me once again quote the Art 371(A) of the Constitution of India. (1) Notwithstanding anything in this Constitution,-(a) no act of Parliament in respect of – (i) religious or social practices of the Nagas, (ii) Naga customary law and procedure, (iii) administration of civil and criminal justice involving decisions according to Naga customary law, (iv) ownership and transfer of land and its resources, shall apply to the State of Nagaland unless the Legislative Assembly of Nagaland by a resolution so decides; ....Thus, we all know that Art 371(A) is the special provision exclusively provided for the State of Nagaland since it gave birth to Nagaland Statehood. The article is so sacred and its sanctity is legally insulated as regards to the aforementioned clauses from undue interferences from the highest authority as Parliament without the consent of NLA. Although I am a layman, what I understand the PNH will have adverse impacts on the vital protective Art 371(A) are: a) The Inter-State body of PNH will be given powers to directly intervene and interfere in all those aspects of life of the Nagas of Nagaland as enshrined in those clauses to which the Indian Parliament cannot have direct access. The few local lawyers with whom I interacted have the opinion that under such Inter-State Structure, the Art 371(A) will become redundant. b) That the Art 371(A) will get diluted under the weight of direct interferences of PNH. c) That the interference of non-stakeholders in the exclusive constitutional provisions of the Art 371(A) will be the basis for the rest of the outside authorities to degrade and undermine the provision. d) That when the Art 370, the umbilical

cord for Jammu & Kashmir, was severed from the Constitution of India, to reduce the Statehood of J&K to third status as the two Union Territories became handy for Indian Parliaments. When the Art 371(A) is diluted by PNH, the sacredness and its sanctity of the provision will evaporate, the legal provision will become namesake and ultimately the Statehood of Nagaland may face the fate of J&K. When we are in winter, will summer be far away? The questions: Firstly, any legal provision enshrined in the Constitution of India cannot be undermined and infringed by any authority under any circumstances. In the wisdom of Indian Parliament, if any such constitutional provision is found irrelevant or obsolete it can be amended under Art 368 by two third majority in both Houses voting for the same. Without such amendment to the Art 371(A), and having already assured that this Art will not be affected in any manner by GoI, how the Union Govt. adopts such measure by which the very Art 371(A) will be both directly and indirectly infringed? Secondly, when the Naga integration is kept nonnegotiable in the ongoing negotiations, how relevant and constitutional for GoI to permit the formation of PNH which will function as InterState authority? Thirdly, will I be too apprehensive that the GoI finds it convenient to bring the Uniform Civil Code into effect in the camouflage of fulfilling the aspiration of the Nagas? Fourthly, the Honourable Governor of Nagaland is optimistic and has challenged the 2 million citizens of Nagaland to rebuild the ‘new Nagaland free from fear of gun and corruption,.....’ Will the ‘new

Nagaland’ remain under the Art 371(A) or will it be transformed into ordinary State of Nagaland bereft of Art 371(A) under PNH? Fifthly, is there no better option to build ‘new Nagaland’ without demolishing the Art 371(A)? Sixthly, what is the standpoint of JLF on the issue of PNH? The assertions: The Art 371(A) was not ordinary article but was born out of political agreement between the Nagas and the GoI in 1960. This Art was never created for any kind of mortgage and it cannot be allowed so. More so, when the two groups of the Naga negotiators are not in a position to achieve Naga sovereignty and integration, and for which none can blame the negotiators for we are all equally responsible. Whereas, though Naga sovereignty and integration are the first best, the Art 371(A) is the second best. I would therefore question the kind of patriotism and nationalism of NSCN(IM) as to why the Art 371(A) be considered the eyesore? When you failed to fetch the first best, do not hate the second best. The Nagas as a whole definitely need a proper common platform sooner or later. However, such platform has to be properly organised transparently and not in the manner the existing Naga ‘Haha’ was constituted. Nevertheless, the Pan Naga Hoho cannot be formed at the cost of the Art 371(A) and the Statehood of Nagaland. I wish my perception of the proposed PNH be proved wrong. When my apprehensions are proved incorrect, the constitutional status of Nagaland will remain and that is what I stand for. Z. Lohe

Presuming that Nagas have opted to be with the Union of India, even as the decision is still been made, a package of developmental and financial bargain can be made in the spirit of quid pro qua for compromising with the demand for sovereignty, not on their own violation but under compulsion though. (1) A battalion of Naga regiment, to be fully financed by the centre be established where all the national workers of the armed wing would be thoroughly rehabilitated in their present ranks and status. 2. A type of government desired and conducive to the Nagas be demanded to rehabilitate officials of the civil wing in their respective position and status. 3. For establishment of new state capital at Dimapur area where sufficient site is available, in place of the present capital, which is landslide prone due to unstable soil, which is gradually sinking, disfiguring and on the verge of being collapsed any time, on which as sizeable amount of development money is spent yearly for repairs and restoration endlessly. 4. Construction of an Airport at Dimapur which is also a possibility. Development of road communication and development of power sector etc. In this regard, the honourable governor of Nagaland, the interlocutor, would be the most appropriate person, who has sufficient knowledge of the aspiration and demand of the Nagas, to appraise the government of India, in all details, and exercise his influence to convince them for acceptance of the demands. I am confident that the GoI would be kind enough to show magnanimity and concede the demands in a favourable way, in view of the struggle they have launched for so long as 70 years, in the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, the ardent advocator of peace, kindness and nonviolence. The views expressed is solely personal subscribed in the spirit of freedom of expression and in public interest. Let kindly light shine, in the darkening gloom, for there is a ray of hope and still light at the end of the tunnel. K. Saku Jamir Retd. Senior Citizen PWD Link Road, Dimapur

Reader’s Post

Kudos to NP, a dedicated 29 years of service


It is very heartening to note that Nagaland Post has toiled and sailed through 29 years, serving the people of the state despite facing threats, intimidation and hardship. As a loyal subscriber of Nagaland Post, I would like to wish and thank the Editor-in-Chief and his team for standing firm on the very foundation of being the Fourth pillar of democracy and protecting the principles of journalism. I do know that there are some many forces within and outside that have tried to tarnish the hard earned name of Nagaland Post. Though there may have been instances of NP facing threats and intimidation, nevertheless, the Lord God Almighty knows and protects the honest and who believes in the truth. Psalms 91:4 - He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart... Wishing the NP family God’s choicest blessing! Wapang Lkr, Dimapur Sir,

Greetings Many many greetings on Nagaland Post anniversary on 3rd December Raj Sharma newspaper nor that of the Editor in any manner.


Amit Shah in the Rajya Sabha during the ongoing Winter Session of Parliament, in New Delhi, Tuesday. (PTI)

In a press release, CYF president Lhuvesayi Lohe and general secretary, Medovelo Sono alleged that the miscreants “out of sheer jealousy, envy and animosity” in the wee hours of November 28, 2019 trespassed into Khezhakeno village under Phek district and torched 10 thatched houses meant for tourists at Chida valley jurisdiction. CYF said they have viewed with “utmost seriousness” this provocative attack of burning houses within the ancestral territorial jurisdiction of a bona fide village member of Chakhesang community. CYF said the act of miscreants was tantamount to direct challenge to the life and property of the Chakhesang community. Asserting that they do know how to defend themselves, CYF said their patience and civility should not taken for granted and interpreted as been weak. CYF has, therefore, urged the Tungjoy village to hand over the perpetrators. It also warned that any future provocations and misadventures on their part would be “met with full force and befitting reply will be made”, adding that the consequences would “totally befall” on Tungjoy village Manipur.

BJP MP asks Centre to make law to ban social media New Delhi, Dec 3 (IANS): Bharatiya Janata Party MP Nishikant Dube on Tuesday requested the Centre to come up with a law to ban social media to stop it from circulating misinformation which leads to abusive remarks affecting lives of people.

If the spacecraft had reached the surface in one piece on September 7, India would have been only the fourth country to successfully put a lander on the Moon.

NEW DELHI, DEC 3 (IANS): Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday tabled a bill in the Assembly for setting up a Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University in the national capital. Sisodia said this university is a dream of the students in the country as they need quality education. “The university will produce students who will have skills to lead a dignified life ahead,” Sisodia said as he tabled the Bill. He said being the national capital, Delhi should have an intake capacity of about five lakh students in higher education.

WASHINGTON, DEC 3 (PTI): NASA’s Moon-orbiting spacecraft has found the debris of Chandrayaan 2’s lander Vikram on the surface of the Moon, the US space agency confirmed on Tuesday, nearly three months after India’s ambitious mission made a hard landing near the uncharted lunar south pole. On September 7, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) attempted a soft landing of Vikram on the Moon. However, ISRO lost contact with Vikram shortly before the scheduled touchdown. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) Camera team released the first mosaic, acquired on September 17, of the site on September 26. Indian Engineer Shanmuga Subramanian contacted NASA’s project after which, the US space agency confirmed the identification of debris by comparing before and after images. “After receiving this tip, the LROC team confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images.

yanka Gandhi’s residence, Amit Shah said that an enquiry had been immediately ordered to ascertain the breach. Detailing the sequence of events that led to the breach, Shah said that the security at Priyanka Gandhi’s residence had been informed that Rahul Gandhi would come in a black Tata Safari car. He said that this information was at the gate. Further, at scheduled time, a black Safari came. In the car, instead of Rahul Gandhi, came Sharda Tyagi, the Chief of Congress Committee from Meerut along with four other party workers. Since the car was black Safari and came around the same time, it was allowed inside. Shah said that even now and earlier, Priyanka Gandhi’s husband Robert Vadra, Rahul Gandhi and other family members do not go through the security arrangement. “It was a coincidence. We have ordered an enquiry. All three responsible for the breach have been suspended. The enquiry is being carried out by the senior most IG (Inspector General),” he said.

CISF. From the ITBP, there are 9.33 per cent personnel while 6 per cent from the SSB and 1 per cent from state police,” the Home Minister said. He said that after five years, the security personnel go back to their cadre. Participating in the discussion, Congress leaders accused the government of political vendetta in the move aimed at stripping the Gandhi family of the security cover. They got the support from RJD member Manoj Jha and CPI leader Binoy Viswam. Senior Congress leader B.K. Hariprasad demanded that the bill be withdrawn as it was politically motivated. He noted that the Gandhi family had made the biggest

sacrifice for the nation and hence their security should not be compromised. Jha asked: “Would the government have brought this bill if some of the protectees did not have Gandhi surname?” BJP MP Subramanian Swamy supported the bill saying it was long overdue. He said that everybody was equal before the law and hence no exception should be made for one family. SAD leader and Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Gujral said that security has over time become a status symbol. “When this House enacts a law, we have to think of the next 25 years. In the last 72 years, we have had 15 Prime Ministers and going forward in the next 30 years we will have another 10-12 Prime Ministers. So, we have to think about the whole thing in holistic manner. We can’t afford to waste money. However, I do say whichever family, whoever person in the country, in politics or not in politics requires security, must be provided with security,” he said. With many Congress members raising the issue of security breach at Pri-


protection as he is the head of the state. “SPG is there for Prime Minister because he is the head of the state. If someone is no longer the Prime Minister but still wants SPG, it does not happen like that in a democracy,” Shah said. Saying that he can’t understand why some people are adamant about SPG, he explained its constitution and how the personnel in the elite security group are from various forces including state police. “Those in SPG don’t come from foreign countries. They are security personnel from this country itself. In the SPG, 33.33 personnel come from the BSF, 33.34 per cent from the CRPF, 17 per cent from the


NEW DELHI, DEC 3 (IANS): Parliament on Tuesday passed the bill amending the SPG Act, paving the way for SPG cover only for Prime Minister and his immediate family members at his official residence, as the Rajya Sabha approved the measure by a voice vote amid a walk-out by Congress members. The Special Protection Group (Amendment) Bill, 2019, has already been passed by the Lok Sabha. The elite security cover would also be provided to former Prime Minister and members of his immediate family “residing with him at the residence allotted to him for a period of five years, from the date he ceases to hold the office”. In his reply to the discussion on the amendment bill, Home Minister Amit Shah said that four amendments were earlier made to the SPG Act and the present one is the fifth one. He said that the earlier four amendments were done keeping one family in mind but this time it has not been done keeping any family in the mind. He said that Prime Minister is getting SPG

recapitalised them with over Rs 2.35 lakh crore for better strengthening and functioning,” he said. Responding to another query on reasons for merger of UBI with PNB, the minister said, “I think the overall intention was to create a strong and competitive bank that may serve as catalyst of growth with improved risk profile of the bank. As far as the interest of the employees are concerned, pay allowances were less favourable overall.” He said UBI’s total business size is Rs 2,08,000 crore, whereas that of PNB is Rs 11,82,224 crore. With the merger, total business size will be Rs 17,94,526 crore, making it the second largest bank in the country.


New Delhi, Dec 3 (PTI): Public sector banks disbursed a record Rs 4.91 lakh crore of loans during the festive month of October and November, the finance ministry said on Tuesday. In a bid to boost consumption and revive the economy, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in September had asked banks to reach out to customers and signal their willingness to lend following all prudential norms. Under her direction, outreach camps or loan melas were conducted across 374 districts across the country to improve credit delivery and support the needs of the economy, with particular focus on MSMEs, NBFCs, corporates, retail and agriculture sector borrowers, without compromising prudential lending. During October, banks disbursed Rs 2.52 lakh crore while Rs 2.39 lakh crore in November.


have been set up to ensure faster integration across functionalities, he added. The minister was responding to a query from Trinamool Congress member Manish Gupta who said that about 50,000 employees will be jobless by next year due to the merger. To another query on banking services likely to be affected in eastern states due to the merger, the minister said the reach and lending capacity will be “much larger and better” with the amalgamation. “In today’s time of competition, I think expansion of these banks is very important...It was our government which went for asset quality review of bank loans given between 2004

dicates how our government believes in reforms. Today I say there are many more steps we have to take,” she added. In the biggest tax reduction in 28 years, the government in September slashed corporate tax rates up to 10 percentage points as it looked to pull the economy out of a six-year low growth with a Rs 1.45 lakh crore tax break. Base corporate tax for existing companies has been reduced to 22 per cent from 30 per cent, and to 15 per cent from 25 per cent for new manufacturing firms incorporated after October 1, 2019, and starting operations before March 31, 2023. “Our step of corporate tax reduction shows how much our government believes in reforms there are many more steps that we have to take,” she said.

Merger of banks will strengthen the lending capacity. It has been ensured that no person loses job. The employees of merging banks will benefit the maximum. Merger is being done keeping their interest in mind,” he said. “We have taken enough precaution,” he said, adding that Narasimham Committee in 1998 and Leeladhar Committee in 2008 recommended amalgamation of the banks. “Amalgamating banks was advised to duly factor in and draw road maps for converging IT systems and HR and to put in place institutional arrangements to ensure expeditious integration,” Thakur said.

The finance ministry in September set up a task force headed by Economic Affairs Secretary to prepare a road map for the “national infrastructure pipeline” from 2019-20 to 2024-25 under a Rs 100 lakh crore infra plan. The task force is expected to cover greenfield and brownfield projects costing above Rs 100 crore each. She emphasised that India has great prospects not that it just has large market but also a large aspirational middle class that has great purchasing power in hands. “From the point of view being a democracy, a rule-based country, there is a clear rule of law principle which governs this country in a very transparent way and therefore if global investors are looking for an environment which is familiar to them is far more acceptable to them, India stands out,” she said.

Impeachment push unpatriotic, says Trump Australia to end bilateral aid to Pak

London, Dec 3 (AP): President Donald Trump criticised Democrats at the opening of a NATO leaders’ meeting Tuesday, calling the impeachment push by his rivals “unpatriotic” and “a bad thing for our country.” Tr ump, who commented while meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, is upset that Democrats scheduled an impeachment hearing while he is abroad. The House Judiciary Committee has set a hearing on the constitutional grounds for Trump’s possible impeachment on Wednesday just before he wraps up two days of meetings with NATO alliance members in London. “I think it’s very unpatriotic of the Democrats to put on a performance,” Trump said. “I think it’s a bad thing for our country.” Trump isn’t the only one complaining. Secretary of

State Mike Pompeo, White House counsel Pat Cipollone and adviser Kellyanne Conway all have criticized the committee’s timing. Tr ump insists he’s solely focused on scoring domestic and foreign policy wins, including making NATO members spend more on defense. But he’s often appeared consumed by the day-to-day battle against impeachment. “I’m not even thinking about it,” Trump insisted anew Tuesday. Before the trip to London, Trump slammed “Do Nothing Democrats” for scheduling the hearing during the NATO meeting as “Not nice!” He also said that during the flight he had read a newly issued Republican-prepared report on impeachment that called his decision to hold up military aid to Ukraine “entirely prudent.” Democrats contend

Israel PM Netanyahu indicted for fraud, bribery

Benjamin Netanyahu (File)

Jerusalem, Dec 3 (IANS): Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been indicted for fraud, bribery and breach of trust in three separate corruption cases. Israeli Attorney General Avihai Mendelblit publicly released an official indictment on Monday, allowing a period of 30 days during which the long-time leader may request the parliament to grant him immunity from standing trial, Xinhua reported. The 77-page indictment charges Netanyahu

with bribery, fraud, and breach of trust in three separate corruption scandals. According to the indictment, the trial will be held at the Jerusalem District Court. The date of the trial has not yet been published. The document contains a list of 333 witnesses the prosecution may call to testify against Netanyahu, including Sheldon Adelson, an American Jewish business magnate and one of US President Donald Trump’s major donors, and Arnon Milchan, an Israeli billionaire and Hollywood producer, and other businessmen and politicians. Netanyahu has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, saying the indictment is part of “an orchestrated witch hunt”. He is the first Israeli Prime Minister, who has been served with an indictment while being in office.

Donald Trump (File)

Trump abused his presidential powers by holding up the aid to pressure Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate meddling in the 2016 US presidential election and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, who had a seat on the board of Ukrainian energy company. But Trump was adamant that the cloud of impeachment wasn’t undercutting his negotiating position on the international stage. “I know most of the leaders,” Trump said. “I get along with them. It’s a

hoax. The impeachment is a hoax. It’s turned out to be a hoax. It’s done for purely political gain. They’re going to see whether or not they can do something in 2020 because otherwise they’re going to lose.” But even as he boasted of his relationships with NATO leaders, Trump rebuked French President Emmanuel Macron for recent comments that NATO was experiencing “brain death.” Macron argues that the U.S. under Trump’s leadership has turned away from the alliance. “Nobody needs NATO more than France,” said Trump, who himself in the past has questioned the long-term prospects of NATO because too few nations are on track to meet the alliance goal of spending at least 2 per cent of GDP on their own defense by 2024. “You can’t just go around making statements

like that about NATO. It’s very disrespectful.” Trump also lashed out against France for a French digital service tax that he said unfairly discriminates against US tech companies, including Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. There is no direct effect on the United States from the French tax, which only applies to the tech companies’ revenues in France, not the United States. Robert Lighthizer, the chief US trade representative, on Monday recommended USD 2.4 billion in new tariffs on French cheese, wine, and other products. The blistering comments from Trump came hours before he was to meet Macron later Tuesday on the sidelines of the NATO meeting. It marked an abrupt turn in the once warm relationship between the two leaders.

Canberra, Dec 3 (IANS): Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s government has decided to cease all bilateral aid to Pakistan, which includes support for successful programmes helping poor women and girls, as funds for development assistance were diverted to the Pacific, a media report said. Australia has a 70-year history of providing aid to Pakistan but will end all government to government development assistance in 2020-21, The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Monday citing the latest aid programme performance report on Pakistan as saying. “Funding in Australia’s overall aid program has been redirected to support new initiatives in our immediate Pacific region,” the performance report said. “This has reduced bilateral aid to Pakistan from AU$39.2 million in 2018-19 to AU$19 million

in 2019-20 and funding for bilateral programmes will fully cease in 2020-21.” A key objective of Australia’s aid to Pakistan has been assisting women and girls with a focus on education, increased access to quality reproductive health and gender-based anti-violence services. But Australia’s overall foreign aid budget has been slashed by 27 per cent in real terms since 2013 and now makes up just 0.82 per cent of federal government spending, an all-time low. Despite those cuts, the Morrison government has pledged an Australian “step-up” in the Pacific and aid spending in that region was lifted to a record AU$1.4 billion in 2019-20. Last financial year Australia’s aid to Pakistan provided food and cash transfers to over two million poor people affected by drought and internal displacement, The Sydney Morning Herald said.

It supported a further 1.2 million people in disadvantaged regions, helping them to gain access to justice, public services and business grants. While bilateral aid will end, Pakistan will continue to receive some Australian humanitarian and “regional” funding such as scholarships for study in Australia. This will total approximately $13.5 million in 2020-21. A spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said Australia “will continue to work with Pakistan on areas of shared interest, including through trade and investment, community links, defence cooperation, human rights and gender equality, and regional security.” Besides Pakistan, Nepal has also been hit by cuts to Australia’s aid. Bilateral assistance to the Himalayan nation will be 42 per cent lower in 2019-20 than the previous year.

19 killed in air strikes in northwestern Syria

Beirut, Dec 3 (IANS): At least 19 people were killed in air strikes by the Syrian army and its Russian allies on the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib, the last stronghold of the armed opposition to President Bashar al-Assad, a war monitor reported. At least 13 civilians were killed in airstrikes by the Syrian army on a popular market in Maarat al-Nauman, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. Maarat al-Nauman has been targeted on several occasions since mid-November by the Syrian military with a motive to gain territory in the southern portion of Idlib, Efe news reported. A Russian attack on

Idlib’s central prison left three dead -- a woman and her two children who were visiting the facility, according to the UK-based NGO, which has a wide network of collaborators on the ground. The penitentiary is run by the Organisation for the Liberation of the Levant, an Islamist alliance that includes the former Syrian AlQaeda affiliate and which has been attacked repeatedly over the past few months. In the Russian attack, 17 people were injured, while an unknown number of inmates managed to escape. One civilian was killed in an attack on the city of Saraqib, the source added. Another civilian was killed in Kanayes and a

Draw gives NZ 1-0 series win over Eng Archer abuse case referred to police

H a m i lto n, D e c 3 (AFP): Centuries from Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor ensured New Zealand drew the rain-hit second Test against England in Hamilton on Tuesday, sealing a 1-0 series win. The weather turned sour soon after lunch on the fifth day when New Zealand, having taken advantage of some sloppy fielding, were 241 for two in their second innings, 140 ahead with Taylor on 105 and Williamson on 104. With the weather denying England a second turn at bat, it ensured New Zealand’s series win after their innings victory in the first Test, and improved their record to eight wins, a draw and one loss (to South Africa) in their past 10 series. Williamson brought up his 21st Test century with a four off Joe Root in the third over after lunch, while Taylor reached century number 19 with a flourish in Root’s next over when he smacked a four and two sixes in consecutive balls. Two balls after Taylor had raised his bat and poked his tongue out in his signature celebration, the rain arrived to wash out England’s faint hope of forcing a result although that chance had already

been damaged by dropped catches. New Zealand resumed the day at 96 for two with England hunting early wickets but their plans went off track when Ollie Pope and Joe Denly spilled simple chances from Wil-

liamson. The New Zealand skipper was on 39 when wicketkeeper Pope put down a regulation offering off the gloves, much to bowler Ben Stokes annoyance, and on 62 Denly inexplicably dropped an

Ole rejects ‘blatant lies’ on his future

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

London, Dec 3 (Agencies): Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called out the “made up, blatant lies” following fresh reports about his future on Tuesday. With pressure mounting on Solskjaer, reports emerged in the press claiming the United boss had told his players he will be sacked if they lose their next games against Tottenham and Manchester City. “I’m good, it’s absolutely no problem,” said Solskjaer, ahead of Spurs’ visit to Old Trafford on Wednesday. “Sometimes you laugh when you read stories about what I’ve said and stuff. At

least I know the sources everyone is talking about aren’t sources, they are just made up, blatant lies.” Three Premier League managers - Mauricio Pochettino, Unai Emery and Quique Sanchez Flores - have lost their jobs over the past two weeks as we enter the so-called sacking season. Solskjaer, though, is not worried about a “kneejerk” reaction from United’s owners, who he speaks to “a few times a week”. “It doesn’t make me more concerned, I’m just focusing on my job and doing as well as I can,” said Solskjaer, whose United side sit closer to the relegation zone

than the top four after 14 Premier League games. “I’m looking at the next game and also looking long term, planning things with the board. It is that time of year, it is never nice to see your colleagues lose their jobs. It’s now three in a very short space of time. But it doesn’t make me anymore concerned that it’s December, no.” Jose Mourinho, the new Tottenham head coach, will be in the Old Trafford dugout on Wednesday for the first time since he was sacked by United last December. Solskjaer says his predecessor will receive a warm welcome from the fans and staff at United but insists his players’ performance will not be affected by the return of their former manager. “I don’t think whoever the manager or the opposition team will change their motivation,” said Solskjaer. “They are motivated to do well for Manchester United because they know it is about proving it every time you step on to the pitch that you should be part of this long term,” he added.

even easier chance. Williamson gently chipped a slower delivery from Jofra Archer straight to Denly at short midwicket and, as the bowler leapt in celebration and Williamson made an apologetic gesture to Taylor, the ball popped

out of Denly’s hands. It drew instant comparisons on social media to the widely regarded worst dropped catch in Test history when England’s Mike Gatting put down a sitter off the gloves of India batsman Kiran More in 1993. Williamson had another life when he should have been run out on 97 but Sam Curran’s shy at the stumps was so far off line that the batsmen picked up an extra run. Even without the rain, Joe Root’s chances of pulling off victory seemed very remote as the England bowlers toiled with an ageing ball on an unresponsive wicket. The one positive for the England captain was his return to form with a double century and manof-the-match award after a year of averaging below 30 to give him confidence heading into a four-Test tour of South Africa. New Zealand, meanwhile, head to Australia on Saturday for a three-Test series with the 1-0 win over England cementing their number two world ranking behind India.

Wellington, Dec 3 (IANS): New Zealand Cricket (NZC) on Tuesday said that it has lodged a complaint with the Tauranga police over the racial abuse directed at England pacer Jofra Archer near the end of the first Test against England in Mount Maunganui. After the completion of the first Test at the Bay Oval which New Zealand won by an innings and 65 runs, Archer had claimed that he was subjected to "racial insults" by a spectator following which NZC and Kane Williamson had tendered an apology. "Information gathered from an inquiry which included studying CCTV footage, listening to audio, interviewing bystanders and obtaining material on social media has been incorporated in the complaint," said NZC in an official statement. NZC chief executive David White said: "What happened to Jofra was reprehensible and has led to a general upscaling of security around the area of racial abuse at all our international venues," he said. "Should the person responsible ever re-offend, we believe we have enough information to link him to the Bay Oval incident." White confirmed that, if a conclusive identification was forthcoming, NZC would seek to trespass the

Messi wins Ballon d’Or for record sixth time

Barcelona’s soccer player Lionel Messi poses with his six golden balls during the Golden Ball award ceremony in Paris.

Paris, Dec 3 (IANS): Star Barcelona striker Lionel Messi has won the 2019 Ballon d’Or award for the world’s best player for a record sixth time. This was Messi’s first Ballon d’Or since 2015 and comes after he scored 54 times for club and country in 2018-19, in which Barcelona won La Liga, reports BBC Sport. Before 2015, the Barcelona forward had won the award in 2009, 2010, 2011 and in 2012. In a glittering ceremony that took place at the Theatre du Chatelet on Monday night, the 32-yearold Argentine confirmed all the predictions that he was the outstanding favourite for this year’s trophy, edging out Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk who helped Liverpool to win the title of the Champions League last season.
