Dimapur Chamber of Commerce submits demands to Nagaland Chief Minister amid protest

Dimapur, 27 April (MTNews): The Dimapur Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) have submitted a charter of demands to the Chief Minister of Nagaland regarding its ongoing indefinite shutter down protest.
In its charter, the DCCI demanded immediate clarification from the state government on whether taxation imposed by Naga political groups (NPGs) is legal or illegal.

Additionally, the DCCI requested the state government to provide a clear response, in black and white, regarding whether the business community should pay GST or taxation to NPGs.

Furthermore, the DCCI demanded that summons of the business community to NPGs offices, camps, and monitoring cells be immediately declared illegal, and law enforcement agencies should be empowered to take action at those places.

The organization also demanded that raids on so-called duplicate products, MRP tampering, and expiry checking by NPGs should be immediately declared illegal, with zero tolerance maintained.

Extortion, kidnapping, and waylaying of transport vehicles should be swiftly dealt with using full force and without impunity, according to the DCCI’s demands.

The DCCI emphasized that the issue requires the Chief Minister’s sincere and prompt intervention, as the business community cannot conduct business under the current inhumane situation.
