Kenye misinterpreting Court's order: NPF (Rio)

Dimapur, September 12: The NPF (Rio) has accused KG Kenye, Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha of "misinterpreting" the September 11 order of the High Court in seeking cancellation of the general convention of the party on September 20 at Dimapur. 

"The entire NPF family is shocked by such an order issued by K.G. Kenye," said a press release issued by the NPF press and information cell (P&IC).

The NPF P&IC said Dr Shurhozelie had filed a petition in the High Court against Neiphiu Rio, pleading to the Court to restrain the NPF from organizing the general convention.

The P&IC pointed out that the concluding para of the High Court order reads "In the meanwhile, status quo as on today shall be maintained by the parties". This, according to the P&IC, explains the very existence of two parties/entities.

Stating that issuing an order to government servants "as though they are a party to the case" is regrettable, uncalled for and unfortunate, the P&IC said the High Court did not issue the order to the Deputy Commissioner Dimapur to cancel the permission that was granted for the convention, but to maintain status quo "meaning, no party interferes in the affairs of the other party."

"Regrettable because K.G. Kenye signing off the order on behalf of Dr. SL is not a part of the civil suit. Issuing an order taking the entire Naga people with a blatant lie and misinterpreting the order of the Hon'ble High Court in itself will attract the long arms of the law, wherein the NPF is convinced that the Hon'ble High Court will definitely take cognizance of how learned K.G. Kenye can fool the common people," it stated.

Condemning "such a cheap and misleading order" by a MP Rajya Sabha, the NPF (Rio) demanded that the "misinterpreted order" be withdrawn and apologies tendered in an orderly manner. 

Condemns removal of NPF Manipur president 

The NPF (Rio) has expressed shock at the removal order of Awangbou Newmai, President NPF Manipur Unit by "NPF minority" President Dr Shürhozelie Liezietsu, saying the order is nothing but a mockery on the principles of democracy and a direct assault on the Election Commission of India.

"This removal order clearly exposes the dictatorial, autocratic, undemocratic and unconstitutional style of Dr. Shürho and it is a vindication of our stand that Dr Shürho had murdered the concept and philosophy of democracy in the NPF party," alleged the NPF press and information cell in a release. 

Stating that "this dictatorial removal order" shall have no bearing in the court of ECI, since the ECI will stick to the original list submitted to them in 2015, the NPF (Rio) reminded that on July 29, 2017, the absolute majority group of 37 NPF MLA's and 37 A/C's under Neiphiu Rio had decided not to recognize or take orders from the "erstwhile NPF President" Dr. Shürho.
