Rubbishing the allegations of Union minister for Planning, and general secretary AICC in-charge Nagaland, V. Narayanasamy that NPF-led DAN government was misusing the central funds, NPF President, Dr. Shurhozelie said people were the best judge to whether development was taking place in the state or not. “Our Congress friends pay visit to Delhi and after reaching Delhi they swell on two topics – one insisting to the party high command to impose President’s Rule in the state and to stop sanctioning of funds to Nagaland” the NPF President alleged on Tuesday while talking to media persons at his private residence. The NPF President also said that the Congress party and the union minister should not hurl false allegations and confuse the minds of the Naga people. Asked on the Congress’ assertion that a regional party MP would have “no voice” and become an “unattached member” in the Lok Sabha, NPF President said “rather we are in a better chance to speak and we’ll get our own quota to speak in the Lok Sabha.” On the CAG report, 2008 which had detected several anomalies in various departments, the NPF president said it was an eye opener and that the government would examine those lapses. Minister for health and family welfare, Kuzholuzo Nienu also assured to look into the various anomalies detected in the health and family welfare department and take corrective measures. Konyak lambasts Coming down heavily on the AICC general secretary, in-charge of Nagaland, Narayanasamy for criticizing the state chief minister over being aligned with the BJP which he described as a “communal force”, Minister for forest & excise, M.C. Konyak on Tuesday said the union minister had “come to create division among the Nagas.” Konyak in a press release said there was no communalism in Nagaland and asserted that the state BJP was a secular party. “Who is he to teach the Nagas about secularism?” Konyak blasted and accused Narayanasamy of trying to sow the seed of hatred amongst the people of Nagaland. He went on to say that Nagaland was a peaceful state without any discrimination against anybody in the name of religion. Konyak said the state BJP was supporting the Rio government because of his good stewardship who has a genuine concern for the people of Nagaland and not “Neiphiu Rio supporting the BJP as stated by him (Narayanasamy).” Konyak also asked as to who the union minister was trying to fool when he said that Congress was the only secular party which could keep the people. Pointing out that leadership issue existed within the Congress party which he said was an open knowledge Konyak also wondered as to how the Congress could be expected to “keep Nagaland” if they cannot keep their own house in order. Reacting sharply to the allegation that development had come to a standstill under the DAN government, Konyak rather blamed the Congress government for obstructing developmental activities in Nagaland. The forest minister said the commitments made by former Prime Minister, A. B. Vajpayee in regard to Nagaland were being withheld by the Congress-led government at the centre by not sanctioning funds to the state. Konyak said the union minister would come under scanner from various political parties for accusing the state government of “poaching.” “He is only asking for revelation of skeletons in his own cupboard,” Konyak added. He said the state BJP knew who to support at anytime and for any reason. Konyak lamented that a national leader with the likes of Narayanasamy was making false accusations just for political mileage.
