The agitation seeking the creation of a full-fledged Shamator district has gained momentum. The Yimkhiung Tribal Council(YTC) which is spearheading the stir has imposed several restrictions in Shamator sub-division including an indefinite shutdown of the Likimro Hydro Electric Project. Not only this, the council has also prohibited government officials, researchers, tourists from visiting the Fakim Wildlife Sanctuary, Mt Saramati, stone caves at Mimi village and Salomi. The YTC has also suspended activities at the sites indefinitely.

The Council said that it has begun the first phase of agitation on Monday by shutting down government offices and business establishments for 3 hours in resentment against the alleged failure of the state government in declaring Shamator as a full-fledged district. It may be mentioned that Nagaland got 3 new districts of Niuland, Tseminyu and Chumukedima on December 21 last year taking the total number of districts to 15.

As already reported by Northeast Live the Yimkhiung Tribal Council(YTC) began its first phase of agitation in all the Administrative Headquarters of Yimkhiung inhabited areas, to protest against the state government’s failure to declare Shamator Sub Division into a full-fledged district before 31st December 2021.

The 1st phases of agitation were held in Shamator and Chessore Subdivisions under Tuensang district and in Pungro Sub Division under Kiphire district.

The demand of the Yimkhiung Naga tribe for up-gradation began in 2003 and since then several representations and reminder letters were submitted to the state government by the Yimkhiung Tribal council.

Even in December last year, The Yimkhiungs had  organized a public rally, where they had submitted a memorandum to the state government through the district administrations.
