Are you with Naga people or Amit Shah? RPP asks UDA

Nagaland News

Demands temporary suspension of Mon DC and SP

DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 13: Calling out Nagaland Government’s failure till date to condemn the “fabricated statement” of Amit Shah in the aftermath of the massacre of civilians at Mon District, the Rising People’s Party (RPP) has questioned whether the Rio-led UDA Government is with the Naga people or with Amit Shah.
“Amit Shah made that condemnable statement on December 6 but even after a week, the three parties of the ruling UDA coalition are yet to condemn his fabricated statement. The RPP demands that the NDDP, BJP and the NPF condemn Amit Shah’s statement in totality”, it stated in a press release issued on Monday.
Countering the narrative of the Home Minister is fundamental to the issue, the Party asserted, adding that the UDA coalition should demonstrate that it is above party politics.
It condemned the Home Minister’s statement and demanded that he retract it.
“Another disturbing pattern is the role of the DC and the SP of Mon district. Between the 1st firing and the 2nd firing by the 21 Para SF, there was a gap of almost 5 hours. During this crucial period, the district administration went missing. The RPP demands that both the DC and the SP are suspended immediately till the outcome of the SIT report is made known”, it stated.
The RPP demanded that on December 20, all the 60 MLAs of Nagaland Legislative Assembly should condemn the Oting massacre and adopt resolution stating that the killings were nothing but cold-blooded murder.
“Targeted killings by army personnel for promotions and medals has been established and documented in Kashmir and elsewhere and such can be assumed for this case”, it stated.
Pointing out that the Mon killings require a thorough probe by a sitting Judge of the High Court/Supreme Court, it demanded that the NLA adopt a resolution for the constitution of a Supreme Court-led independent probe.
