Dimapur, November 15 (NEx): The Karbi Students’ Association (KSA) on Sunday called for an indefinite Economic Blockade to Nagaland from November 17, 2020 onwards.

The economic blockade is to protest against the unabated illegal encroachment of Karbi Anglong (Assam) land by the people of Nagaland with the support of Nagaland Government, claimed KSA.

The Protest is also to mark the failure of the Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) and the government of Assam to protect its land, it stated.

Highlighting on the six key demands by the KSA, the Publicity Secretary Karbi Students’ Association (KSA) Central Executive Committee, Sotrosing Tisso informed NagalandExpress that the pillar removed by Nagaland in Doldoli Reserve Forest should be reinstalled with GPS co-ordinates.

The KSA also demanded that the two Nagaland IRBn camp – Inside Doldoli Reserve Forest and Near pillar number 9, should move back to their respective border areas, and the electricity which was supplied by Nagaland Government inside Karbi Anglong should be removed and all the materials of electrification should be taken back.

Further, the association demanded for eviction of illegal encroachment in Doldoli Reserve Forest, and that illegal encroachment should be stopped in the near future. It also stated that the Government of Nagaland should not interfere in Karbi Anglong Border Development scheme.
