DIMAPUR, APR 10 : Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) expressed surprise over what it described as an “unbecoming” statement of NPF president Dr. Shürhozelie for saying that former chief minister Dr. S. C. Jamir was indulging in self praise. NPCC vice president Aosashi said instead it was unexpected of a man of Shürhozelie’s stature “to talk childishly like that.” NPCC said Dr. Jamir had merely stated facts and not praised himself as interpreted by Dr. Shurhozelie. Saying there was no dispute that Dr. Jamir was the tallest leader among the Nagas and bringing laurels to the state, it said his elevation to “Governor was not a mean achievement that could be blown away by venomous breath of a jealous man.” On the issue of governance, NPCC said there were no two opinions that Dr. Jamir was “unmatched” by any leader in Nagaland which Naga people know. It said despite having ruled the state as chief minister during the most turbulent times, Jamir had run the state of affairs confidently and heralded political stability in the state. Further, NPCC said it was “very sad” that a senior politician like Shürhozelie, whose entire political career had not crossed the borders of Kohima district, harbored bitterness towards Jamir for shining inside and outside Nagaland. Slamming Dr Shürhozelie, NPCC said “jealousy is a social cancer that people like Dr. Shurhozelie suffers from.” NPCC said it is known how the DAN came to power in Nagaland during the past two elections and opined there could be a desperate attempt to repeat the same modus operandi to save its prestige and keep its morale afloat. NPCC asserted nothing could stop the will of the people and if the NPF had any apprehension about abnormal situation, it was the duty of the government to provide adequate security for smooth conduct of the by-poll. It also wondered why the NPF felt so insecure and averse to the re-entry of Dr. Jamir into State politics since the NPF may be blurred in seeing Dr Jamir as an outsider though he “is the son of the soil. NPCC said Dr. Jamir may have gone out to the call of duty but his heart and soul remained with his people and his home State. Asking what was so strange about Jamir’s return to state politics, the NPCC advised the NPF to learn to reconcile with the reality and put up “a brave face instead of braying like a donkey.”
