NPCC has condemned the press statement issued by NPF press bureau member, Nuzota Swuro for his scathing and personal attack on Dr. K. Hoshi by using “immature, un-parliamentarian language.”
NPCC vice president, Nillo Rengma described Nuzota’s statement as nothing short of attacking the Congress party as a whole since Hoshi’s statement represented the stand and voice of the party. Rengma said Hoshi was appointed media cell chairman as the prerogative of NPCC president and which was purely an internal matter of the party. He cautioned Swuro not to meddle in the internal affairs of the Congress.
Rengma said Hoshi in the statement had only highlighted the ground realities occurring in the state almost on daily basis. He challenged the NPF as to why it was trying to hide from these ground realities.
Rengma asserted that Swuro in his rejoinder to Hoshi had crossed all limits of healthy debate in democratic practice and needed to be condemned for branding the Congress party as a “barking dog” even when the opposition’s charges against the DAN government were “substantiated.”
Rengma termed Swuro’s statement as “parochial” and a reflection of how the NPF-led DAN government has been scoffing at the sufferings of the people. He reminded the NPF that the Congress’ statements represented the voice of the suffering public under the “tyrannical rule” of NPF-led DAN government.
“When our own house has been burning with volatile law and order problem why bother about comparing with the situation in the neighboring state or Delhi?” he asked and also advised the NPF to talk/debate on issues with substance.
Rengma also reminded that Nuzota Swuro was a Congress MLA from 1998 – 2003 and was a Congressman till the 2008 election. He said Swuro left the Congress after he was denied the Congress ticket in 2008 election because of loss of public “confidence in his constituency.”
Rengma also retorted that Swuro had not given his mandate to the NPF party as he jointed the NPF only after the 2008 election.
“He’s just a stranger in NPF who had not contributed even his own vote. He was part of whatever charges he had leveled against the Congress government of that time. Now that he is down and out-cold, never to rise again, he is venting out his anger,” Rengma said.
Nillo urged the public not to give credence to a “frustrated chameleon” politician like Nuzota who did not even know the difference between being dropped from the council of ministers and resigning from the elected post. Stating that the public outcry on deteriorating law and order problem, especially in Dimapur was obvious, the Rengma said Swuro, being a “man of contradiction” had the “nonsense to give thumbs up” to home minister Imkong L. Imchen much to the chagrin of the public.
Further, Nillo Rengma advised the NPF not to try to cover its own failures by deviating from the issues. He said the public do not want statements from the NPF on issues that needed the government’s response. Rengma said the DAN government is supposed to shoulder the responsibility of governance and not to try to run away from it by crying out to the civil societies or NGOs for help.
“Whatever weaknesses and shortcomings the Congress ministry in the past might have had, the opposition NPF (erstwhile NPC) had played its own role to take on the government of those yesteryears,” he pointed out.
Rengma said the Congress party believed it was “not wise,” for the NPF as the party in government now to still play the role of the opposition. He said the regional party(NPF) seemed to be still fighting hard to shed off its opposition stigma.
