Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) Violation of Model Code of Conduct Committee on Tuesday complained to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) that the NPF-led DAN government was continuing to violate the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) despite the poll dates announcement by the Election Commission.
In a letter, NPCC narrated that the NPF party workers have been intimidating the congress party workers by threatening people with excommunication from the village if they vote for the Congress.
Asserting that it was unacceptable to any democratic society, Committee convenor Eduzu Vadeo and member, Mmhonlumo Kikon said the alleged act of NPF announcing through Public Announcement system, with such threats, was purely politically motivated.
Further, alleging that Zelumai Vilage Council secretary, under Razeba Sector, Dakho Domeh made the announcement on April 4 at 7 p.m., the Committee urged Chief Election Commissioner to take immediate action and investigate into the matter thoroughly.
In another complaint letter NPCC claimed that restoration of Advisory Council Members of Mokokchung Municipal Council was a breach of MCC.
Pointing out that MCC allows only meeting of Municipal Council to discuss revenue matters preparing draft annual Budget during the period of the Lok Sabha Elections, NPCC said “restoration” of the Advisory Council Members after more then seven months of their resignation was breach of the MCC.
Stating that “restoration” itself was politically motivated, as seven members of the Advisory Council were “active” supporters of the NPF, the MCC said “restoration” has obvious political intent.
In its third letter to CEC, NPCC charged NPF led DAN government for transferring Niuland EAC, Lovitoly Sema, wife of Congress candidate from Dimapur-III A/C, Vikheho Awomi after the declaration of ensuing Lok Sabha Elections.
Viewing that it was not only a violation of MCC and that it was politically motivated action, NPCC urged CEC to immediately revoke the order and take necessary action.
