Dimapur, March 29: The Naga People’s Front (NPF) has expelled Toshipokba from the party for a period of six years with effect from March 29 for withdrawing his nomination for the 26th Aonglenden A/C bye-election without the knowledge and consent of the party.
The expulsion order issued by NPF president Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu on the recommendation of the Disciplinary Action Committee of the party said Toshipokba had also issued a press statement dated 28.03.2019 declaring support to a particular candidate who belongs to the political opponent of the NPF.
Stating that Toshipokba’s action is directly against the stand and principle of the party, the order said his action attracts Art. XIV para 2 (a) & (c) of the party constitution.
“You are hereby expelled from the party for a period of 6 (six) years w.e.f. 29.03.2019,” the order stated.
