Four members of the Congress party Kohima village, in a letter addressed to general secretary AICC, in-charge New Delhi appealed to review the actions taken against them by Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) and Kohima District Congress Committee (KDCC).
The signatories Dr. Sadikuolie Khezie, Ruokuoneisa, Neisakuolie Belho and Aba highlighting some of its grievances faced as a sequence of actions initiated by NPCC and KDCC alleged that on September 17, C. Apok Jamir MLA, filed an FIR by implicating them of tampering ballot boxes and ballot papers during NPCC election and that he also directed president, KDCC to suspend their membership in the party.
The signatories also stated that KDCC president did not issue the suspension individually but was brought to their notice through local media by asserting it was issued on the directive of AICC General Secretary i/c Nagaland
On September 21, the signatories said the suspension order was brought to the notice of AICC general secretary i/c Nagaland at Delhi and the matter was verified in the office. However, it added the then NPCC president, issued the revocation order of the suspension order on September 25 since it was verified from AICC general secretary i/c Nagaland, and constituted a one man enquiry commission led by vice president, NPCC was asked to submit detailed report on the circumstances leading to the September 17 incident.
The four suspended members further asserted that on October 8 the president, KDCC had served a “show cause” notice to them asking them to reply individually within 14 days. However following a representation submitted by the four Congress members to NPCC president on October 20 to look into the FIR lodged by C. Apok Jamir MLA and KDCC president, the signatories expressed inability to accept and reply to the show cause notice which was found to be “unconstitutional and arbitrary” under INC constitution and rules.
They further added that on October 23 the new NPCC president instead of being non-partisan directed them to tender an apology to be reassessed by the NPCC and alleged they were not given opportunity to respond to the allegations.
