As the debate on the motion of thanks to the governor’s address resumed on the second day, Saturday, the opposition Congress appeared to have changed its strategy in attacking the ruling NPF-led Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN)government.
Former NPCC president K V Pusa initiated the debate rather in a diplomatic manner by asking the ruling Democratic Alliance of Nagaland not to take the criticism personally because whatever the opposition pointed out was for the welfare of the state. He said the ministers and parliamentary secretaries should instead be happy for pointing out lacunae and shortcomings. More so, he pointed out that chief minister Neiphiu Rio has been persistently advocating wiping out corruption and transparency in the government.
Saturday’s debate witnessed lighter moments with wit and humor from various speakers including former chief minister K. L. Chishi, former forest minister, Kheto both from the opposition bench and also C. L. John from the ruling bench who spoke in support of the motion.
Instead of a heated debate, laughter echoed the floor of the house when Kheto composed an abbreviation of DAN and read out a humorous SMS poem.
Similarly, K. L. Chishi used his wit not only to keep the house away from dozing off but to constantly attract the attention of the house. He even sang the song - “today is mine, tomorrow might not come.”
Other Congress leaders including Chingwang Konyak, I. Imkong and C. Apok Jamir who also joined the debate were rather sober and suggested constructive views and ideas instead of criticizing the ruling Democratic Alliance of Nagaland and the governor’s speech.
E. E. Panteang and C. L. John both from the ruling bench also participated in the debate. They defended and supported the motion of thanks to the governor’s address.
