S.I.Jamir contender for the post of NPCC president has challenged interim NPCC president I.Imkong, to be specific by disclosing names of PCC members who were being held against their will as alleged by the latter.
Imkong yesterday accused S.I. Jamir and some senior leaders of confining some PCC members in three camps since September 13 last. Taking on another allegation against him, S.I Jamir also demanded that Imkong name PCC members currently with him (Jamir’s camp) but who purportedly support him (Imkong). Sungit maintained that those supporting him “voluntarily decided to flock together” in consideration of I.Imkong’s alleged past methods of fighting elections. Sungit alleged that “even now” some of his supporting PCC members were being threatened through sms from unidentified sim cards.
“In fact, it was I. Imkong and group who had reached Delhi first to mislead and influence some Central party leaders with false report on the incident,” he said.
On the overruling of Kohima DCC’s suspension order by I.Imkong against the four involved in the September 17 disruptions, Sungit pointed out that Imkong has no power to do so since he was now only a care taker president. He asserted that in view of being a care taker president, Imkong ‘s constitutional power has temporarily ceased to take any action on such matter.
Further, Sungit said the Congress constitution was very clear in that any District Committee has every power to take disciplinary action against its subordinate members within its jurisdiction.
Sungit pointed that when Imkong claimed that the suspended KDCC members were his (Imkong’s) supporters, their actions were being justified by revocation of the suspension order. Sungit said this “proved beyond doubt” that they had acted on Imkong’s behest and therefore, the entire incident was also preplanned by Imkong and his core group.
As those suspended had committed the highest degree of criminal act on polling day, Sungit reminded that FIR against them was still pending. He also said that justifying criminal action before the law took its course “criminalization of politics”.
Sungit accused Imkong of abusing the office of PCC president to sabotage the constitutional election. He said all the delaying tactics were to retain the post of ad hoc president since Imkong has “lost all hopes of winning”. He also slammed Imkong and his group for leveling allegations out of frustration but said “truth would be known” when members of the electoral college exercise their democratic election process on October 6.
Threat: Meanwhile, a hitherto unknown group, ‘Youth Committee of Shri I.Imkong Candidature’at a meeting Friday, urged S.I.Jamir to “pave way” for free and fair NPCC election on October 6. Alleging that PCC members were being illegally confined in Shillong and Guwahati by S.I.Jamir, the Youth Committee Convenor Neiyo warned that if the members were not released, it will not tolerate the “action of S.I.Jamir” and that those PCC members allegedly confined “may not be allowed to cast their vote” on October 6 “ for disrupting the democratic process of conducting election”.
