Naga People’s Front expresses concern over Dzukou fire: lauds Governor RN Ravi

NPF: Dzukou Valley is not only a tourist hotspot but also a National asset and is a home to various species of flora and fauna and burning of such forest will deeply dampen the ecological balance.

The Naga People’s Front (NPF) said it is deeply pained and expressed its anguish over the ravaging wild fire at Dzukou Valley, which was spreading since December 29, 2020.

“The Dzukou Valley inferno cannot be considered as a natural disaster but is a man made fire that is causing a great harm not only to the beauty of the Valley but also to our environment,” the NPF said in a statement.

The NPF then said that the Dzukou Valley is not only a tourist hotspot but also a National asset and is a home to various species of flora and fauna and burning of such forest will deeply dampen the ecological balance. “Therefore, the lackadaisical attitude of the State Government cannot be tolerated and requested the State Chief Minister or his ministerial cabinet to take personal survey and do the needful steps in containing the fire as well as to protect the valley,” urged the NPF, adding, “And since the Dzukou Valley can be termed as the national asset, the NPF strongly urges upon the Central Government to immediately look into the matter with great seriousness and may even involve the CBI or NIA to probe the cause of the inferno and if found any miscreants responsible for the inferno, then stringent action should be initiated”.

Meanwhile, the NPF has lauded the State Governor, RN Ravi for showing his personal concern and visited the blazing Dzukou Valley to take first hand information.

The NPF also appreciated the Indian Air Force (IAF), National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), State Disaster Response Force (SDRF), DC and SP Kohima, Forest Department, Southern Angami Youth Organization (SAYO) volunteers and all the concerned persons for promptly giving their best efforts to douse the blazing fire.
