An uneasy calm continued to prevail in the state with the Nagaland Tribes Action Committee (NTAC) vowing they will practice restraint only after T.R. Zeliang steps down as Chief Minister. Governor PB Acharya in his response to the demands of the Nagaland Tribes Action Committee stated he was deeply grieved at the unfortunate death of two youth and injury of two others in the firing incidents, and he assured that he will take action as per constitution to punish the guilty.

In regard to the election issues of the urban local bodies, which saw the loss of two volunteers on January 31, 2017, late Bendangnungsung and late Kriesavizo, both allegedly died in firing by the state police at Dimapur in Nagaland.

Various tribal representatives have now formed a committee as Nagaland Tribe Action Committee in Kohima and are demanding the three charter points to the governor of Nagaland.

  • The Chief Minister along with his Cabinet should resign.

  • The ULB or urban local body election process presently enforced must be declared null and void.

  • The erring police officer and personnel be immediately suspended.

The Committee further stated that without the reply of the demand by the state governor the bodies cannot be buried. So far, the government has not yet responded to the demands.
