Nagaland is again in the limelight for the wrong reasons in political history, having witnessed the change of guard for the post of Chief Minister twice in five months in 2017. Nagaland Governor PB Acharya on July 19 dismissed the 147 day old government of Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu and invited TR Zeliang to form the new government the same day.

The Governor asked Zeliang to prove majority before July 22, however it proved the majority on July 21, with 47 legislators voting in his favour and 11 legislators against it. The Speaker Dr. Imtiwabang Aier did not vote, while one seat is lying vacant.

TWIPRALAND MOVEMENT An Instigating Politics of Innocent Mind

By-Biswendu Bhattacharjee

The demand of a separate state for tribal within the state of Tripura appears to be a dream for Indigenous Peoples’ Front of Twipra (IPFT) when BJP is looking to make inroads into power; CPI-M is trying to retain one of its last bastions. Innocent tribal minds were initially polluted by CPI-M during 90s with anti Bengalee propaganda in the hill to come in power but the communal hatred remain in their mind, which is now being exploited by a group of tribal leaders with abetment of leftists.

CACHAR “Operation save nature.”

By-Jyoti Lal Chowdhury

There has been frequent public outcry against illegal quarrying and mining of sand from the river system of Barak Valley. This has been going on for decades without any action by the forest officials concerned or the administration. The situation has come to such a pass that even the forests and its wealth have become the target of timber-mafias. The media, both print and electronic, has been highlighting with graphic details and photographs how the greenery and the illegal mining and quarrying go on daringly. Of the three districts in this valley, Cachar is richest in natural resources.

According to a forest official who wants to remain anonymous, 90% of the quarrying of stones and mining of sand has been illegal. People, both tribal and non tribal, have often dared to speak out against the mafias.
