The Yimkhiung Tribal Council(YTC) of Nagaland began its first phase of agitation yesterday 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 district 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 Yimkhiung people organized a public rally, where they had submitted a memorandum to the state government through the district administrations.

According to the Council, the state government has also assured YTC to fulfill the long aspirations of the Yimkhiung people. However, the government has been allegedly procrastinating citing various reasons in declaring Shamator as a district.

Worth mentioning here is that Nagaland Cabinet on December 18 had announced the formation of three new districts in the state bringing their total number to 15. Tseminyu, Niuland, and Chumukedima were declared as the 13th, 14th, and 15th districts of Nagaland.

While Tseminyu was carved out of Kohima, Niuland and Chumukedima were formed by trifurcating Dimapur.
