DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 1: Dimapur-based Naga mass civil societies comprising the Dimapur Urban Council Chairmen Federation, Dimapur Naga Women Hoho, Dimapur GB Sardar and the Dimapur Naga Students’ Union have condemned the parties involved in the Naga Council Dimapur pending litigation.
In a joint press release, the 4 unions condemned the creation of “unnecessary issues by some few vested individuals for their selfish interest.” It urged the Judge to pass an early judgment on the pending litigation in the interest of justice.
The release stated that organizations/societies functions within the ambit of their respective constitutions, and that in any recognized civil societies/organizations, the members are appointed/selected/nominated either by the election commission or by the nominating committee.
“And the nature of selecting/setting up of Election Commission or the Nominating Committee is done by the outgoing members/executives. Thereafter, the election commission/nominating committee does the necessary procedures to form the council of executives/members within the ambit of the constitution,” it claimed.
Stating that new aspiring candidate/members has no constitutional right to participate in selecting the election commission/nominating committee until and unless they took an oath, the joint release maintained that the primary objective of any civil societies/organization is purely voluntary and for the wellbeing of the society and “as such it is illogical/ irrational for any individual trying to breach the constitution of the society/organization where he/she desires to get accommodated.”
Asserting that the Naga Council Dimapur, being one of the oldest and most respected civil societies in the State, plays the role of fatherly figure to other civil bodies and for citizens of Dimapur, the joint release termed as disheartening that the office has remained non-functional for the past 5 months. “And it is evident that their absence has a larger negative impact for its citizens at this crucial period of time,” it said.
