It seems the issue of Chief Secretary, Tabom Bam’s so-called dilution of demand of nomenclature change of Nyishi’s has reached a dead end and Bandh seems quite inevitable.
The appeal of the Chief Minister on October 7th to call off the stir for overall interest of the state and his assurance to lead a cabinet delegation for ensuring constitutional amendment for nomenclature change from Dafla to Nyishi has fell on deaf ears and ANSU (All Nyishi Students’ Union) is adamant to carry on with it’s proposed stir from October 15th, if their demand for removal of Chief Secretary by 13th October is not met.
On removal of Chief Secretary, the Chief Minister had appealed to the students’ organization ANSU to solve the issue amicably as CS was ready to talk to ANSU representatives terming there had been communication gap.
“On the issue of CS’s transfer, the Chief Minister appealed to the
Unionto resolve the issue amicably as the CS had already clarified the matter through media and pleaded personally that he not be misunderstood. Further, the meeting opined that the whole issue cropped up because of a communication gap.”
The reiteration of demand of removal of CS by ANSU, even after the assurance of CM that he would see to it that there is constitutional amendment for nomenclature change from Dafla to Nyishi has made me wonder; is there any other interests (political or otherwise) other than the so-called dilution of demand by Tabom Bam? Isn't it preposterous to think that Mr. Tabom Bam has indeed sabotaged the effort of Nyishi's for nomenclature change, when the final outcome of the Central Teams visit is not known yet? Who knows, may be the Nyishi's would finally get their due. If there is negative outcome of the Central Teams visit, then only, I guess Mr. Bam would have been blamed for sabotaging the efforts of the Nyishi's.
Now, it is to be seen if the common populace of the state would be forced into another Bandh; what stance the government would take to diffuse the situation-would it remove CS under duress or would it let ANSU carry on with the Bandhs?
Galo Welfare Society (GWS) has appealed to ANSU for harmony and to sink differences and drop it's proposed agitation against the state Chief Secretary for the larger interest of the communities stating that the CS was probably not properly briefed on the proceedings during the 20th September meeting at Banquet Hall here with the ministry of Tribal Affairs Secretary.
And in order the diffuse the tension, the state government has constituted a fact finding team comprising of RWD Minister Chowna Mein, Industries Minister Tanga Byaling, Education Minister Tatar Kipa, Parliamentary Secretary Thajam Aboh and MLA Kameng Dolo to look into the matter leading to controversy and the team would submit its report within 3 months.

Would the Nyishi's get their right nomenclature?
