Mokokchung | August 10
The Ao Student’s Conference (AKM) in continuation of their fight against the infiltration of illegal immigrants to Mokokchung, conducted a surprise checking at the two check gates bordering Assam, namely, Nagaland gate, Tsutapela and Nagaland Gate, Watiyongpang on August 9 and 10.
AKM officials along with volunteers from different Ao student units visited the two check gates and carried out the surprise checking. According to the reports of the AKM, around 128 ILP defaulters were caught and a few were deported. On proper verification and checking of documents, it was also found that most of the commercial vehicles and laborers coming from the different parts of the state did not have the required documents or ILP.
Vice-president, AKM, Sunglem Walling said that the officials at the check gates were not strict enough and that the state government should set up a proper ILP checking point at all check gates. “No proper mechanism at the check gates gives opportunities to people from outside the state and also other countries to enter our state without proper documents and ILP,” he added.
The AKM has been working consistently since Survival 2007 to check the influx of illegal immigrants to Mokokchung. The surprise checking was carried out in the wake of Assam’s NRC draft list which was published week ago. The AKM added that volunteers have been assigned at these check gates for further actions as and when necessary.
The AKM officials said that the infiltration of illegal immigrants into the state is one of the greatest issues and that AKM will take the matter seriously.
