Our demand for Dimaraji still stands: Dilip Nunisa

SILCHAR, Oct 14: “The pro-talk faction of the DHD will not inch back from its demand for Dimaraji, a separate State for the sons of the soil,” stated chairman of the outfit Dilip Nunisa.

Prior to the tripartite talk with the Centre and State Government on October 22 in Delhi, Nunisa told The Sentinel that until and unless a separate State for the Dimasas was granted, their agitation would continue. Nunisa, however, ruled out the possibility of him joining active politics or floating any political party. “As of now, our sole motto is Dimaraji. Let it be materialized, then I will think about joining politics,” Nunisa said.

On the Black Widow, the Dimasa militant outfit which laid down arms on October 2 and which is now reportedly bargaining with the government to usurp the North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council, Nunisa said he has nothing to comment. “People have seen the violence unleashed by the Black Widow. They have also seen how the Black Widow has stalled development works in the district. But if the government entrusts the surrendered Black Widow militants with the charge of the Autonomous Council, people will have to decide,” he said.

Nunisa, on Tuesday, also joined the agitation by the Autonomous Council employees who have not yet received their salaries for the last seven months. Lambasting the State Government, Nunisa said the government has been playing a dirty game with the Council employees. Nunisa told The Sentinel that he had taken the side of the agitating employees purely on humanitarian grounds and nobody should smell any politics in it. THE SENTINEL
