Elections to various posts under the NPCC which were called off on September 17 later rescheduled to September 20 but further postponed a day before the polls. AICC election in-charge Oscar Fernandes has yet to announce the date for the polls at the time of filing this report.
Meanwhile in a statement, S.I.Jamir maintained he has the pledged support of a total of 52 out of the total of 81 making the electoral college. In a statement, he said altogether 47 eligible voters of PCC electoral college have extended support in writing and physically presented themselves to the chairman, Central Election Authority (CEA), AICC on September 22. In addition, Sungit said five members who were not physically present had voluntarily affirmed their support to him in ‘legal papers’. All these added to the 52 tally he said. Further, he described allegations by the rival camp that some who supported him were confined against their will, as “totally false and baseless.” He said all members being responsible leaders in their own right, have the capacity to exercise their freedom to decide and added they were in Delhi, on their own volition.
Sungit also maintained that I.Imkong ceased to be NPCC president, after his nomination papers which he filed, were accepted by the PRO on September 14.
Sungit said party members expected that a senior party leader who is neutral, would have been given temporary charge as NPCC president till elections were completed. He regretted that no fair play could be expected when I.Imkong continued in the post despite being in the race himself. Sungit also said the current Pradesh Election Officer for the NPCC polls was playing the role of host for the opposing camp.
He pointed out that the chairman, CEA, AICC had earlier declared to the members that re-poll would be conducted at the earliest by deputing some leaders.
Sungit asserted that the NPCC elections was an exercise for inner party democracy and should respect the desire of a majority and not be held to ransom for selfish interests. He said the poll date deferment compelled those supporting him to take the battle to Delhi to demand for early re-poll.
