No tax to NSCN or KTU re-affirms Kuki CSOs

KANGPOKPI, Oct 23: Kuki civil organisations including Kuki Inpi Sadar Hills and its frontal organisations, Sadar Hills Women Union, KSO-Sadar Hills and Kuki Chiefs' Associations unanimously reaffirmed their stand once again in a general body meeting at Kangpokpi to not endorse and give any tax or donation to Naga militant group NSCN of the Kuki Tribal Union, KTU, which they allege is a proxy of the NSCN.

The Kuki civil bodies within Sadar Hills also re-affirmed their stand to stop the collection of any tax or donation in the Kuki inhabited areas within Sadar Hills by any other organisations.

The fact that KTU is collecting taxes from Kuki villages reveals the communal attitude of GPRN/NSCN, pointed out the Kuki civil bodies in the meeting, asserting “No Kuki village will pay any taxes to GPRN/NSCN/KTU and its constituent units or frontal organisations.” This is also the collective stand of the Kuki civil societies in Manipur.

The Kuki civil bodies further pointed out that repeated demands of taxes from Kuki village within Sadar Hills by KTU transparently reflects the design of GPRN/NSCN to sow seeds of discord between the Kukis and Nagas by using the Kuki Tribal Union (KTU) for collection of taxes from Kuki villages.

Urging to withdraw and cancel its orders with immediate effect for long lasting peace and harmony between the two communities, the collective leadership of the Kukis had earlier rejected the orders of GPRN openly in all leading newspapers of the state on March 12.

Cautioning the GPRN to mull a lot before using the name of KTU in the future so as to avoid communal tension, the Kuki civil bodies reminded the GPRN that the Kukis were peace loving people.
