On the eve of the organizational elections of the NPCC scheduled to be held on October 6 in Kohima, the 49 delegates supporting the candidature of S.I.Jamir for NPCC president, have accused rival candidate and ad-hoc NPCC president I.Imkong of deputing some members of one underground faction to their residences to threaten some members on the night of October 2.
According the signed statement, two ‘s.s. majors’ and some of their men went to the residence of a former deputy chief minister and threatened that unless he supported I.Imkong, they would not leave his residence.
The delegates said after an hour of discussions, the underground group understood his position and finally left.
Further,it was alleged that on the same night, two kilonsers and some ten cadres of the same faction, went to the Dimapur residence of a PCC member from Wokha. The kilonsers asked the PCC member to support I.Imkong or else the PRO for the election “may not come to Kohima to conduct the repoll”.
In another incident, a deputy kilonser, a tatar and some cadres of the faction are staying in the Kohima residence of one senior PCC member from Tuensang to make the member support I.Imkong.The statement added that they were refusing to leave the house till the member conceded to their demand.
It was also alleged that PCC members of Kohima supporting S.I.Jamir were approached by the members of the faction to withdraw support to S.I.Jamir in favour of I.Imkong.
The signatories said PCC members and DCC presidents supporting S.I.Jamir, were also receiving warnings through sms asking them to support I.Imkong.
According to the signatories, the particular underground faction threatened PCC members supporting S.I.Jamir with “appropriate action” in the next assembly election.
In view of these incidents of threats and intimidation against PCC members supporting S.I.Jamir by the underground faction, the signatories have decided to make a public declaration that if anything happens to any of them, “I.Imkong will be held solely responsible.”
The signatories maintained that as PCC organizational election being an internal party affair, “no outside force should meddle in its internal affairs”. They asserted that no one should put personal interests above party interests and that democratic election process should be allowed to be held in a peaceful, free and fair manner.
The signatories have also made a fervent appeal to all the higher authorities of underground groups to honour the principle and spirit of the ‘Covenant of Reconciliation signed at the initiative of the FNR and “ to restrain their rank and file” to desist from interfering in the NPCC elections “directly or indirectly”.
