NPCC miffed at NPF’s responses

Miffed at the way the NPF-led DAN government was responding to the opposition party on issues of public importance, the NPCC has said that the former has been in the habit of saying that the situation was worse during the Congress regime, every time they (NPF) find no answer to the charges of the Congress.
NPCC president, S. I. Jamir reminded that the situation during the Congress regime without cease-fire in force was entirely different from the present situation. Even then, the Congress government had competently handled the volatile law and order problem of those days, Jamir claimed. He said that the entire period of DAN’s regime has been so far under cease-fire period for which, the people at least deserved a normal situation.
NPCC said it was “highly unbecoming” of the home minister to have responded to the resentment of the public for the prevailing situation in Dimapur in a “lackadaisical attitude, arrogance and sarcasm.”
“Peoples’ sufferings are not something to be taken that way. Even if he did not want to accept the opposition’s charges, at least he should listen to the voices of the public in a responsible manner. The resentment of the public was obvious. A Minister or a government that has not heeded to the peoples’ grievances would be ultimately ousted. Therefore, what phrases the Congress used is not important,” Jamir said.
NPCC also said that the situation was not going to improve by comparing the state’s situation with that of the neighboring state or Delhi. Jamir asked if comparison was to be made with other northeastern states, then why Congress-ruled states of Meghalaya and Mizoram were not compared, where the situations were peaceful.
He said the NPF-led DAN government should not shift the responsibility of governance to the civil societies or the opposition party since it has a responsibility to shoulder the problem. “Calling the opposition party and the civil societies to step-in was an expression of helplessness and poverty of new ideas to tackle the problems,” Jamir said.
Stating that the NPF-led DAN government and its legislators should not even dream that the Congress has been raising the issues of public importance for the sake of paper war, the NPCC president said that the Congress knew its role of playing an effective opposition for public interest.
