Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) and Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Chingwang Konyak have reacted sharply to a news report “change of guards in Cong likely” reported in a local press August 3. A NPCC press statement issued by NPCC media cell chairman R Paphino Monday stated that a joint meeting of PCC office bearers, frontal chiefs and media cell chairman held at Congress Bhavan on August 3 after thorough deliberation unanimously denounced the report. Maintaining that party was “cohesive and intact”, the NPCC affirmed its “solid unstinted support” on the leadership of NPCC president KV Pusa and CLP leader Chingwang Konyak. The NPCC statement said that the question of Congress party rank and file in favour of change of CLP leader and PCC president was “utterly hoax and simply a handiwork of handful of vested interest people.” It also asserted that public should not be swayed by such “cheap propaganda” that vitiates the political atmosphere in Nagaland. In another rejoinder, the CLP leaders Chingwang Konyak asserted that recent visit of Congress legislators to Delhi was to appraise central leaders about state affairs and not for party affairs. He said that the question of recommending names for the post of CLP leader and NPCC president by CLP leader and PCC chief did not arise, adding that it was “totally false and baseless.”
