Naga community opposes boundary map of Nepalese group within its land

9:41 AM
The Bena Nguang (Thonglang Atongba) Village Authority (TAVA) has on Wednesday alleged that an illegal land boundary map of 11 Nepalese Blocks under Irang Part-I in Senapati district has been submitted to the Government, saying the present Nepalese community in the area has been staying by paying yearly land tax to the village authority or landlords.
Naga community opposes boundary map of Nepalese group within its land

All the Nepalese inhabitants are directly administered by TAVA, and that they have no permanent land of their own in Thonglang Atongba, a Liangmai Naga village, a TAVA statement said. It added that the two communities have been living together in peace and harmony since ages enjoying all the facilities and schemes provided by the Government till now.
But with the emergence of Government schemes such as MGNREGS, the need for submitting a separate land map to the Government for the Nepalese settlers came up which is only possible with the assent of the village authority concerned, it said.
TAVA strongly objects the submission of the boundary map of the Nepalese Blocks since the land in question entirely belongs to Liangmai community, TAVA said.
It warned that if any untoward incident occurs between the two communities over acceptance of the map, the Government should be responsible for it.
TAVA further warned that any development scheme in the jurisdiction of Thonglang Atongba will be banned if it is taken up without seeking prior permission from the village authority.

Dewan said further criticized the Govt. of Assam for failing to provide security,’Places like Charaipung, Sonari, Titabor, Naojan, Ghualapni, Titabor, Langpih, Chawaldhuwa and Merapani were always in trouble torn or disturbed area map but neither the central government nor the state government were ever interested in resolving the conflict to an amicable solution and nevever adequate paramilitary forces were deployed adequately’. He appealed Union Home Minister of State Shri. Khiren Rijiju to visit the disturbed area and under MHA guidance to resolve all the border disputes once and for all.

First Gorkha Martyr Sahid Major Durga Malla's 70th Martyrs Day

9:21 PM
Dimapur Gorkha Union (DGU) Commemorates the 70th Martyrs Day of the First Indian Gorkha Martyr Major Durga Malla (INA) on 25th August 2014 at Town Hall Medziphema. DGU has organized a Blood donation camp on the occasion.
Dimapur Gorkha Union Commemorates the 70th Martyrs Day of the First Gorkha Martyr Major Durga Malla.
First Gorkha Martyr Sahid Major Durga Malla's 70th Martyrs Day
After his arrest, Sahid Durga Malla was kept in the prison at Red Fort, New Delhi as a prisoner of war. He was prosecuted by military court under section 41 of the Indian Army Law and section 121 of the Indian Penal Code. He was given death sentence by the Court Martial, the court of trial before which he was tried at Red Fort. That was the time when the imperialist British rulers were trying to suppress the Indian freedom struggle by all means. Therefore, before the death sentence was finally executed, the British authorities tried to coax Major Durga Malla into confessing the wrong and promised him grant of remission if he could do so. But it was against the wishes of Veer Durga Malla whose only objective was to get the country free. He preferred to embrace the gallows rather than accepting the proposal of the British rulers. All persuasions having failed, Durga Malla’s wife Smt. Sharda Devi was brought before him at the prison cell as the last resort. British authorities were of the opinion that she would persuade her husband to apologise. But Major Malla yielded to no devices of the British authorities. On the contrary, he gave his wife his last words by saying. Sharda, I am sacrificing my life for the freedom of my motherland. You need not be worried and distressed. Crores of Hindustanis will be with you after my death. The Sacrifice I am offering, shall not go in vain. India shall be free. I am confident, this is only a matter of time.

Supreme Sacrifice

On 15th August 1944, Veer Durga Malla, the great patriot, was taken to Delhi Central Jail from the Red Fort. After ten days, on 25th August 1944, he was sent to the gallows. Thus ended the journey of one more noble son of mother India who laid down his precious life at the altar of Freedom. Durga Malla’s Physical body is no more but he sacrificed himself after leading a meaningful life of only 31 years and became immortal.

" Let us all come together and join our hands to pay a rich tribute to the Gallant Martyr. Let us be proud to be a Gorkha"
