NPCC today expressed its view that imposing Disturbed Area Act and AFSPA were not necessary provided there was “discipline between the armed factions” and no disturbance of public order during ceasefire period. NPCC executive committee members, who sat in Congress Bhavan November 10, had thorough discussion on extension of “Disturbed Area Act (DAA)” for another 8 months in Nagaland, said NPCC media cell chairman Dr. K. Hoshi in a communiqué. According to NPCC the disturbed area act (DAA) was effective since 1958 under successive central governments including the NDA government, to which NPF was the coalition partner. Asserting that DAA could be extended in Nagaland only with the endorsement of the state cabinet, Dr. K. Hoshi said: “Hence, the NPF should not lay blame on UPA government blindly”. He further pointed out that no Act of parliament in reference to law and order can be enforced by union government without the endorsement or demand of the state cabinet. Informing the NPF party that “public order was in the state list No.1,” the NPCC urged NPF to stop its “double-talk to fool the people of Nagaland.” “If the cabinet had not endorsed it and the GoI had imposed on the State, the cabinet should raise the issue to the GoI and make its stand clear to the public,” said Dr.Hoshi. Also, pointing out that Nagaland receives 100% central assistance for implementation of modernization of state police forces (MPF), on the ground that it was under “A” category of threat perception; the NPCC assumed that state cabinet had feared that MPF funds could be withdrawn by central government.
