Pointing out the contents in the constitution of the Naga People’s Front (NPF), the Manipur People’s Party (MPP) Friday criticized the Election Commission of India for giving recognition to the party as a political party.
Senior leader of the MPP, O Joy pointed out that X (A) (1) of NPF’s constitution which states “Any citizen of Nagaland who subscribes to the principles of the Naga People’s Front shall be eligible for primary membership of the party” and alleged that the Election of Commission of India, it seem not aware of this section of the constitution of the party.
This article of the party clearly indicates that NPF extends it membership only to citizens of Nagaland and not to others. It shows that the party is a communal party and as per the rules of the Election Commission of India, no recognition should be given to such “communal minded” party.
Political parties in the Northeastern states where the NPF is planning to expand its activities should challenge the recognition of the party by ECI. For the MPP, “We are of the option that we should go to Supreme Court and challenge the constitution,” Joy said.
Besides this, he asks, how such party which only people from Nagaland could be enrolled as member can open its unit in Manipur. This clearly shows that the motive behind the party is to disintegrate the territorial integrity of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, he maintained. NPF is a problem creator in the Northeast states, particularly in Manipur. Expansion of its unit in the other parts outside the state Nagaland should be prevented at any cost by the political parties in the reason unitedly, he urged.
While terming NPF as a puppet of NSCN (IM), Joy alleged leaders of NPF were being used by the NSCN (IM) to fulfill their dream of formation of Greater Nagaland by disintegrating its neighbouring states.
“When NSCN (IM) is unable to achieve their end with armed struggle,” they colluded with NPF to use political means to fulfill their dream, he alleged.
Further pointing out the article II (C) of the constitution of NPF, “To work for unity and integrity of the people by integrating all contiguous Naga inhabited areas under one administrative roof and also to provide protection to all ethnic groups who are indigenous inhabitants of the state,” Joy asserted that this clearly shows that the party is trying to break the integrity of its neighbouring states like Manipur.
Political parties in the state should stand unitedly to prevent NPF expanding its activities in Manipur as it will create unrest situation in the state, create communal hatred among the people of the state.
He also urged the leaders of the NPF to step back from its decision to launch its unit in Manipur and cancels the plan to launch the unit in Senapati district of Manipur. He also expressed believe that the leaders of Naga People’s Front will not indulge in such an act which will create problems in its neighbouring states.
