Kohima, June 24 (NE): Dimapur District Citizens’ Forum through a press release in June 23, 2020, expressed indignation on the unabated taxation by some Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) and other elements from shops and business establishments in Dimapur.
At such an uncertain time like this caused by this COVID-19 pandemic, when Churches, Civil societies, NGOs and even some individuals are contributing their bit to support this fight against the pandemic, it is most unfortunate that collection of various taxes from the already affected shops and business establishments are going on rampantly which results in price escalations, and in turn is effecting the public directly or indirectly, said the press release.
DDCF appealed everyone, irrespective of group affiliation, to understand the present prevailing situation and refrain from such unabated taxation for the welfare of the citizens of Dimapur. It requested to rather, help the citizens by putting a check on the high rise of the price of commodities for the welfare of the people of Dimapur in particular and Nagaland in general.
While acknowledging the District administration for the tireless efforts taken to tackle this pandemic, the forum also called upon the concerned authorities to look into this issue for the well-being of all the citizens.
