Dismissing NPCC’s recent criticism that ruling NPF-led DAN government had failed to effect the rule of law in the state, the Naga People’s Front (NPF) Friday claimed that overall law and order situation in the state was “under control” and that there was no sign of lawlessness as “falsely indicated” by the NPCC.
NPCC on Thursday accused the DAN government of failing to protect the citizens of the state from unlawful activities such as rampant multiple taxation by different underground groups, non-government organizations and even government agencies in various check posts, and escalation of prices of commodities.
Refuting NPCC allegations, NPF press & media bureau, in a statement issued here Friday, said the DAN government “unlike its predecessors”, had shown political will to address every issue and has never avoided any of its responsibilities.
“The Government of the day is duty bound to take every possible step to maintain peaceful law and order situation and the DAN Government has taken up its responsibilities with utmost seriousness,” the statement said.
Maintaining that state government has revealed the decreasing figures of crime in all parts of the state even in the past, and that DAN government has left “no stone unturned” to create a congenial atmosphere for peace to prevail, NPF held that thus there was relative peace and tranquility in Nagaland.
Stating that people were fully aware of “the several steps” taken up by the state government towards the maintenance of peaceful situation, the NPF bureau further said that NGOs, civil societies and mass based organizations have played a key role in the prevailing scenario.
On the crime rate in Nagaland, the NPF said state rated among the lowest in the country. It stated that factional clashes have greatly reduced in the recent past and that crime rates had gone down.
“The police and administration are leaving no stone unturned in its endeavour to provide safety and security to the citizens,” the NPF bureau stated, claiming that people and civil societies of the state have risen to the occasion by extending full support to government agencies in maintaining tranquility in the state.
The NPF stated that those facts clearly indicated that people had full confidence in the leadership of the DAN government and the state government.
Meanwhile, rejecting NPCC’s demand for state home minister’s resignation, the NPF termed Congress statement as “only rhetoric”.
“There is absolutely no question of the minister stepping down as he is carrying out his responsibilities in an admirable manner,” the party defended.
The statement said the intelligence of the people should not be taken for granted by the congress by making “baseless allegations” as people could “clearly see the progress being achieved” under the guidance of the DAN government.
Furthermore, on the state’s financial stand, NPF assured people that fiscal health of the state was “fine” and that there was no reason for any worry.
It stated that NPCC’s demand for a white paper on the Rs.712 crore was “ridiculous” considering that it was part of the Annual Statement of Accounts, adding use of plan funds were clearly mentioned in the budget documents.
“It is shocking to observe the statements of a national party of such stature making a mockery of itself with such regularity,” the NPF stated.
