In a surprise move, the All India Congress Committee (AICC) has put on-hold the issue of leadership change in the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) and instead was widely expected to bring about a major change in the NPCC set-up soon. This has sent clear indications that the present CLP leader Chingwang Konyak would continue to hold the post. Highly placed sources in AICC revealed about the possibility of change in NPCC President before the Congress organizational election in the state. It was learnt that an ex-minister from Karnataka, H. K. Patel, has been appointed as the chairman of the Pradesh Election Authority of Nagaland state for conducting the organizational election in the state. The source said that the AICC might appoint a new NPCC president and would be given an opportunity to re-organize the party set-up and finally get the approval of the Congress high command. The organizational election schedule is still awaited though the AICC had started appointing chairman of the Pradesh Election Authority of various states for conducting organizational election. The Congress high command recently air-dashed V. Naranayanasamy, minister of state for planning and parliamentary affairs and general secretary AICC in-charge of Nagaland and Sanjay Bapna, secretary in-charge Nagaland to take stock of the situation of the Congress party in Nagaland. They held hectic parleys with the state Congress leaders and legislators at the state capital on December 14 and 15. The source said that the in-charge of Nagaland submitted the report on both the functioning of NPCC and change of CLP leadership issue to the Congress high command in New Delhi. State Congress sources said it had urged the party high command for change in CLP leadership where 13 Congress legislators out of total 19 have projected Tokheho Yepthomi as their next CLP leader.
