NDPP rebuts JD (U) merger claim


Dimapur, June 18: The Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) rubbished the allegation by the Naga People’s Front (NPF) that the de-registration of NDPP by the Election Commission of India is imminent.
The latest NPF sponsored complaint to the ECI is a matter that will be replied to and clarified and the matter is politically motivated and hold no water, said a NDPP rejoinder to the allegation.
On the NPF claim that the NDPP is planning to merge with the JD (U), the party termed it as aimed at creating confusion and “adding to its game plan of survival through false propaganda.”
The NDPP said the JD (U) is a member of the NDA Government at the Centre and also a member of the PDA in Nagaland and it was on these lines that the Nagaland Chief Minister and the Bihar Chief Minister had met on the sidelines of the NITI Aayog meeting in New Delhi.
“The question of merger does not arise,” it clarified.
“It is shocking to observe the policy of the so called oldest regional political party resorting to a strategy of lies, deceit and spread of false propaganda,” added the NDPP. (Page News Service)
