Zomi Re-Unification Organisation clarifies on rhino poaching

A release signed by joint secretary of ZRO, TK Mang has clarified that neither ZRA had done such unlawful act in the past nor will it do in the future

Zomi Re-Unification Organisation (ZRO) said that its armed wing, Zomi Revolutionary Army (ZRA) was abashed at the accusation that ZRA is involved in rhino poaching. A release signed by joint secretary of ZRO, TK Mang has clarified that neither ZRA had done such unlawful act in the past nor will it do in the future. It also mentioned that ZRA has no connection whatsoever with the so-called United People’s Liberation Front (UPRF) wherein its leader Martin Guite was reportedly killed in an encounter with Assam Police on October 5 at Manja in Karbi Anglong district, Assam. The news was carried in EastMojo, it added. It is also factually incorrect to say that ZRA was formed by NSCN (IM) to fight Kukis in Churachandpur as ZRA, indeed, is a Zomi Army formed to fight the noble cause of reunifying the Zo people with the active and unstinted support from its people, said the release. The unmindful accusation of ZRA’s involvement in rhino poaching holds no water but only an attempt to defame the image of ZRA. The outfit is fully committed to the cause it stands for and will never indulge in petty and illegal businesses like rhino poaching, it added.
