MTLT flays rising cases of extortion

Mokokchung Town Lanur Telongjem (MTLT) has strongly condemned the rising cases of extortion in and around Mokokchung town by “national workers”, thereby vitiating the peaceful atmosphere in the society.
MTLT president Imnaonen Pongen and general secretary Imkongchuba Pongen said the recent case involving national workers from a certain Naga political group who were arrested while extorting money from travellers was highly condemnable and could not be tolerated.
MTLT lauded Mokokchung Police for its prompt action in arresting the anti-social elements and initiating action as per the law of the land.
It also strongly endorsed the press statement of All Ward Union Mokokchung Town (AWUMT) published in local papers on September 30, 2022 that directed the jailed culprits to leave the town within 15 days once they come out of jail.
MTLT declared their strong support to the stance of AWUMT not to pardon any extortionist and the declaration of taking befitting action against such elements. They also supported the direction to every household to always keep three traditional torches ready as practised in the past.
In this regard, MTLT called upon every youth of the town to take serious cognisance of AWUMT press statement and be ready for any eventuality that might arise.
Further, MTLT declared that it would not tolerate any anti-social element and requested all peace-loving citizens of the town to remain vigilant so that the peaceful atmosphere of the town was not disturbed in any manner.
