Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, SEPTEMBER 29: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has demanded the UDA Government in Nagaland to make its stand clear to the people and the Government of India on the demand for Frontier Nagaland State.
“UHM (Union Home Ministry) summoning ENPO to discuss the demand for Frontier Nagaland State on 18th Oct 2022 is a serious concern for Congress and perhaps for all those who love Nagaland. The subject is to divide Nagaland State and may even result in the loss of Art. 371 (A) in the way J&K lost Art. 370. UHM may also promise in the manner he has done to insurgent Kukis, for votes”, alleged NPCC president K Therie in a press release.
“It was the design of GoI to counter the demand for integration, fuelled by the BJP and alliance (NPF) Govt.’s negligence, suppression, injustice and inequality in development activities and job distribution”, he claimed.
Stating that the Congress party has appealed to rethink on the demand, Therie said the Congress has assured to relocate DUDA and committed a Mini-Secretariat at Tuensang. “The objective is to enable planning, supervision and disbursement of payments there itself. This was rejected by the mandate”, he said.
NPCC said there is also a need to pay special attention in matters of road connectivity and others basic infrastructures in Eastern Nagaland. “Rs 300 Crs vanished into thin air. Other funds are drawn with no significant works seen on the ground for the last 20 years. If the Government is bad, legislators from ENPO have their share of bad, for all 20 MLAs are in the ruling Govt. and the majority party is headed by none other than veteran leader Shri Chingwang Konyak as NDPP President who also continues to enjoy Cabinet status”, it added.
