Naga bodies hit the street to protest illegal ‘tax’ collection

Organised by the Public Action Committee (PAC) of Nagaland Council, an apex tribal body of the commercial town Dimapur, the rally demanded that illegal collection of ‘taxes’ on various goods and services, transporters, vehicles and dealers be stopped immediately.

The state government must take immediate step to check and ban syndicate and lease system, unauthorised collection centres operating in and around Dimapur district by various unions and organizations, including Naga political groups and state government agencies resulting in uncontrolled inflation in all prices, the committee stated.

“Public street protest is a sign of the Government’s failure,” the group said. It also urged the State Government to alleviate the woes and daily struggles of the common people.
