Amid severe criticism against home minister, Imchen L. Imchen by political parties and other organizations over his recent statement on law and order, the NPF has given a “thumbs up” and told him to keep up with his works claiming that Nagas were with him.
Referring to the criticisms, the NPF press bureau member and ex-MLA, Nuzota Swuro said, “after all the dogs may bark but the caravan will move on.”
The NPF called it a “joke” that the Congress party media cell had expressed “sincere desire” to replace the home minister who had been mandated and elected by the electorates of the state. Swuro said there were constitutional provisions to remove/replace any minister in the government and that such authority did not lie with the media cell of any political party but only with the prime minister or the chief minister as per the law of the land.
The NPF said there was nothing wrong with the home minister appealing the public for their cooperation and support in containing law and order problem as it was a joint responsibility and that every citizen was expected to extend their humble efforts to bring peace and harmony in the land.
“I am afraid the DAN government may not take the advice of the NPCC to ‘hand over the reins of the state to the underground government’ because of the records of political failure where the Congress party ruled the state and the government was over ruled by the undergrounds,” Swuro said.
Further, the NPF said it was open for the Naga public to see and judge that during the last more than a decade Congress rule in Nagaland, there was killing everyday, kidnapping, extortion and the like. Stating that was how the Naga electorate gave its mandate to NPF under the leadership of Neiphiu Rio, the NPF said that the political or law and order situation had tremendously improved that there was relatively peaceful environment prevailing today.
Also hitting out at NPCC media cell chairman Dr. K. Hoshi for attacking the home minister on law and order front, the NPF described him as a “two years old politician born during 2008 general elections” and that Nagas could not expect matured political statements from him.
Further, the NPF described him as a “Naga gentleman who had never ran short of repulsive and dirty words in his press statements.”
Swuro said he was not questioning the wisdom of NPCC leadership but pointed out that the political statements in the local dailies were not read only by the locals alone but outsiders too who do not know the ground realities and that it reflected the image of Naga society as a whole.
