ROF, KGOU flay alleged harassment on officer

Rengma Officers’ Forum (ROF) and Konyak Gazetted Officers Union (KGOU) have strongly condemned the alleged harassment on Er. Thanyalo Kath, SDO (Electrical) Mon and ROF executive member, by some members “claiming to be NSCN (U) cadres”.
In a press release, ROD president, Awa Lorin described Er. Thanyalo Kath as a “diligent government officer with a good antecedent and like any Rengma, a staunch nationalist at heart” and that accusing him of “working against our national cause is too big an allegation to shoulder”.
ROF said the matter could have been resolved amicably by sitting across the table instead of resorting to detention and threatening thereby causing mental trauma to the officer.
The forum said that the Rengmas as a tribe has always been in the forefront in as far as fighting for the “national cause is concerned”. Therefore, ROF said “casting aspersions” on Er. Thanyalo’s integrity was uncalled.
Further, ROF has upon all concerned authorities to take the “threat, harassment and mental trauma caused to its member with most seriousness and to take prompt necessary action to put things into perspective without prejudice”.
KGOU: Konyak Gazetted Officers Union (KGOU) in a condemnation said it was aghast by such intimidation with death threats on a government officer.
The union in a press release by its vice president, Chenkang Konyak and general secretary, Moba Konyak said that Er. Thanyalo Kath Er. Thanyalo Kath was a sincere government servant, who sincerely served the people of Mon and was known to be a cordial and polite officer and therefore such incident was unacceptable.
It therefore appealed to the law enforcing agency and the Konyak Union to settle the issue amicably at the earliest.
The union said that no government servant serving the people of Mon and the people of the state should be subjected to such inhuman harassment.
