Dimapur, July 6: Opposition Naga People’s Front has ridiculed the allegation by ruling NDPP that the NPF is trying to mar the cordial relationship between the present PDA Government and the Governor saying the Governor does not trust the present Government.
“The question of NPF making an attempt to mar the cordial relationship between the present PDA Govt. and the hon’ble Governor does not arise; it is already a foregone conclusion that the hon’ble Governor does not trust the present government as there is no semblance of governance. Not only the hon’ble Governor but even the general public have no hope and confidence whatsoever on this PDA government,” the party’s press bureau claimed in a communiqué.
On the PDA Government and the NDPP talking repeatedly aboug the Framework Agreement and the conclusion of the political talk on October 31, 2019 claiming themselves “to be the champion of these two important events” in Naga political issue, the NPF asked, “What contribution did the present Govt. made or for that matter the NDPP party too on these two important political events? Since human memory is short, it is necessary to put the record straight; the Framework Agreement of 3rd August 2015 was signed during the time of NPF-led-DAN Govt. and furthermore, the NPF delegation comprising of NPF Legislature Wing and the party leaders led by the Leader of the NPF Legislature Wing Mr. TR Zeliang camped at New Delhi for almost two weeks and closely kept in touch with the NSCN (IM) and the NNPGS during the last round of negotiations which was successfully concluded on 31st Oct. 2019. Therefore, it is rather amusing how this PDA Govt. and the NDPP is attempting to take shelter on these two significant political events without an iota of contribution from their end.”
On the PDA Government mentioning about the present pandemic in its reply to the Governor saying thousands of returnees are being provided all facilities of health care, food and accommodations, the NPF ridiculed the claim that the returnees are provided with good care when there are thousands of complaints from almost all the quarantine centres.
“After mishandling the Tuensang returnees, the govt. dismantled the state co-ordination committee on COVID-19 headed by Chief Secretary and it was reconstituted with CM and Dy. CM as convenor and co-convenor respectively but situation has only become worsen and the way the Government handle the Jalukie episode is a total failure and inefficiency to tackle the present pandemic,” it claimed.
Stating that since the PDA Government has failed on all front, including law and order, the NPF said this Government has no moral right to continue in office even for a day and asked them to resign on moral ground. (Page News Service)
