The Joint Committee on Prevention of Illegal Immigrants (JCPI) said the tribal bodies and civil society organisations will take out a rally in Dimapur and Kohima at 10 am on Friday in connection with ILP and the Register of Indigenous Inhabitants of Nagaland.

They will submit a representation to the respective deputy commissioners after the rally.

JCPI convenor Atomi Swu and secretary Tia Longchar, in a release, said it was decided to take out the rally and submit the representation as resolved by the JCPI along with tribal bodies and civil society organisations at a meeting on March 12.

The JCPI appealed to each tribal apex body in other districts of the State to exercise their own wisdom and make a representation to the State government through their respective deputy commissioners.

It appealed to all the Dimapur-based tribal bodies and civil society organizations to send their participants to the DC Court junction by 10 am on the day.

It requested all the major tribes to send 200 participants each and the Naga Tribal Union Chumokedima Town for 200 participants.

The JCPI urged the other tribes and civil society organisations to send at least 50 participants each to express their support and solidarity to the cause.

The representation will be submitted to Dimapur deputy commissioner after the march from DC Court junction to his office.

The JCPI also requested the sons and daughters of the soil to be present at the programme.

The committee had earlier served an ultimatum to the Nagaland Government to enact necessary law and pass an ordinance to implement the RIIN in the State within March 21, 2021.
