Kohima, Apr 20 (ANI): The young business community of Nagaland, which has recently started their business in the state, has complained of Naga militant outfits extorting money from them.
Asi Kera, a young entrepreneur, who runs a restaurant, said they are facing difficulties as many faction groups come up to the business community and extort money from them in the name of taxes.
"There are a lot of factions coming up and the business community here in Nagaland is facing a lot of problems. They are having a hard time paying these taxes and lot of extortion is there. We are facing a difficult time," said Kera.
Another ambitious entrepreneur, Aienla, who started her boutique two years ago, said she is forced to give a part of her earnings from the business to these factions.
"We work very hard and all of sudden they just come in and ask to give this much amount in the name of some tax," said Aienla.
Entrepreneurs like them have been severely affected by the militant led extortion in the state.ime and again the business community in the region has urged the militant groups to stop such activities as it is a major deterrent in the overall development of the state.
But it seems that such requests have fallen into deaf ears as the militants groups refuse to mend their ways and continue to carry out their illegal extortion to fund their campaign in Nagaland.
Such activities have had a negative impact on the youth who are keen on want to creating an identity for themselves and the state. (ANI)
