A day after 19 state Congress legislators and an independent MLA met UPA leaders in New Delhi and highlighted the “deteriorating state of affairs” and urged the Centre not to release funds without proper verification of the utilization certificates as the recent state budget had not factually reflected the correct financial position, the NPF said that all the matters raised by the Congress had been sufficiently discussed during the budget session and satisfactorily replied by the chief minister. “…however the Congress leaders are repeatedly making the charges hoping to get some mileage from their uttering,” the press & media bureau NPF said in a statement on Wednesday. On matters of the budget, the NPF said that the chief minister had made adequate explanations on all queries and doubts raised by the Opposition and that there was no question of any error or misappropriation relating to the annual statement of accounts. It was pointed out that the concerned department had also issued clarifications on the points raised by the Opposition. The NPF asserted that the fiscal health of the State was in sound condition and claimed that the Nagaland government had been managing the financial matters in the most responsible and judicious manner. On the Congress’ alleged misuse of NREGA funds by the DAN government, it was clarified that all the guidelines for the funds were being adhered to and said that the programme had greatly benefited the rural sections. The NPF media bureau said that the law and order situation in the State had largely improved due to the tireless efforts of the government machinery, especially the administration and police along with the cooperation of the civil societies and the public. Describing the statements of the Congress leaders as “nothing but attempts to misguide the public and perhaps its own leadership in Delhi,” the NPF said that the Centre was however fully aware of the prevalent condition in the State. It maintained that the false allegations of the Congress would not have any impact on the observation of the Central leadership on the state of affairs in Nagaland nor on the people of the State.
