NPF Kohima Division has expressed ‘amusement’ over the statement by former MLA, K. Therie, on the recent development of Congress MLAs resigning from the party as ‘ranting’.
“Coming from a leader who stands rejected by his own people for having been a manipulator and also mishandling of PM’s bailout package of Rs.365 crores under his charge is hilarious; if not for the gravity and tone of his accusations against state chief minister, Neiphiu Rio,” stated a press release issued jointly by Kesoneilie Theunuo, press secretary, and Theyiekielie Tachu, president.
The release also added that Therie was the wrong person to be preaching on ‘morality and probity’ in public life at the same time felt that he should first introspect and look within to be convinced himself whether he should be passing judgment or advices to others.
“He should also not try to subvert the Christian tenets and values as no Christian would ever swear upon the Holy Bible in front of the Church congregation for a wrong that one has committed”, said the release.
The NPF, Kohima, also stated that Therie was certainly not ‘an angel’ to be preaching on matters relating to corruption, misuse of development fund, engineering and inducing MLAs for the party felt that he knows that by ‘preaching’ to others on the recent political developments in the state would not absolve him of his ‘past sins’, moreover added Therie should instead first ‘confess’ to the public for his past ‘sins’ as his past ‘wrongdoings and manipulations’ would not be easily forgiven nor forgotten by the public.
The NPF, Kohima, through the press release also questioned as to whether the Congress party was so devoid of political issues that a party member like Therie who was once “kicked out of the party by SC Jamir” has to call for resignation of the CM just because they could not hold the party together? “The resigned Congress MLAs have realized that destiny of the Nagas should lie in the hands of the Nagas and not like the Congress party who rule through the High Command from Delhi. It is a political homecoming”, the press release further added.
