Responding to Congress MLA, I. Imkong’s allegations that the NPF-led DAN government had enticed two Congress MLAs with cash amounting to Rs 10 crores into resigning from the house and the party the NPF has said “it cannot be more hilarious and absurd”. NPF general secretary, K. G. Kenye in a hard-hitting statement said it was Imkong who set in motion the series of defection and resignation of several DAN legislators in 2007, thereby setting precedence never before witnessed in the state Assembly. He said the “malicious plot” plunged the 10th NLA into total chaos and jeopardy that compelled the house to be placed under suspended animation. He said the State Congress party even campaigned in Delhi issuing an ultimatum to dissolve the party and resign en-masse if President’s Rule was not imposed in Nagaland. He said the Congress-led UPA was compelled to yield to their demand that was devoid of all logic and reason. Kenye said Imkong’s accusations against the resigned MLAs would instead, only mar the integrity and credibility of the remaining members, if as alleged, Chief Minister Rio and the NPF have leverage and access in the Congress. He said Imkong’s statement was a delusion as it only meant that the opposition was at the mercy of the NPF. On the DAN’s commitment to development, Kenye said the 6th Pay Commission would soon be implemented in totality even though the cost might run as high as Rs 600 crores. He said a special financial package amounting to Rs 120 crores would also be implemented, outside the normal state plan. All these would ensure a full throttle and speedy development approach in the ensuing year, the NPF said.
