KVYO responds; calls for proof



Dimapur, February 15 (MExN): The Kohima Village Youth Organisation (KVYO) has asked the general secretary of the Local Traders’ Union of Super Market in Kohima to bring out a list of property ‘destroyed’ during the recent shop-dismantling drive in Kohima. The traders’ union is also told to produce the names of members who were allegedly manhandled by the youth volunteers. The KVYO issued a note today saying that any hindrance to developmental activities and plans “without specific rationality” will not be tolerated under any
circumstances.
The KVYO press release stated: ‘The KVYO hereby directs Neibanuo the general secretary of the Local Traders’ Union Super Market, Kohima to bring out a list of property destroyed belonging to the local traders.  At the same time produce those members whom the volunteers of the KVYO had allegedly tried to inflict physical harm on or before the 22nd of February, 11am at the office of the KVYO above United Traders, Probo Complex Kohima. Failing to comply with this directive will be considered as a direct challenge to the KVYO compelling us to initiate any action we deem necessary against LTUSMK.”
The KVYO also requested the traders’ union not to give any further press statement regarding this issue but contact the office of the KVYO at 9856000177/9436437558, “as fictitious and far fetched allegations will further aggravate the situation.”
KVYO also informs the public that it carried out the directive of “our government in the best interest of the public in our state capital. We also reaffirm that the removed shutters and gates of super market are not the property of the LTSUMK but assets of the government.”
The press release said accusations about damages caused to the property of the traders union are baseless. “However, if needed, proof against this allegation can be sought for from the media personnel who were present at the site and witness to the whole proceeding. Let it be known that any hindrance to the developmental activities and plans under our jurisdiction without specific rationality will not be tolerated under any circumstances. KVYO will stand firm and steadfast for the development of our state capital,” the organization stated.
