Former DC Mokokchung, Imkongtemsu has been served a notice for his alleged defamatory statements against former CLP leader and Congress MLA, I. Imkong, requiring him to publish a written apology within two weeks from Saturday. Advocate A. Zhimomi representing I. Imkong also notified the former DC that failure to publish the written apology would invite appropriate proceedings against him and that the same would be at his own risk as to costs and consequences. The Advocate referred to the news item published in this paper on April 7 wherein Imkongtemsu alleged that Imkong had sought NPF ticket to contest in the ensuing parliamentary election from state chief minister during a dinner a Niathu Resort, Dimapur sometime in the month of February this year. The former DC had also said that Imkong was denied the ticket as there were many intending candidates and that the latter was “ready to sell out and cheat his followers if he was to be given the NPF ticket.” The Advocate said his client did not discuss politics with the chief minister on that day apart from exchanging pleasantries. He also pointed out that Imkongtemsu was neither present nor party to the pleasantries exchanged between the chief minister and his client. The Advocate defended his client saying that the statements were “absolutely false.” He said the statements were motivated and aimed solely at tarnishing his client’s image who has been a “dedicated and loyal” worker of the India National Congress. The Advocate also said Imkongtemsu’s statements spoke volumes of his motivated conduct and attempt to gain cheap publicity at the cost of Imkong’s reputation. “Your indulgence in sensationalism based on falsehoods and your attack on my client’s integrity is highly deprecated,” the Advocate added.
