Reacting to the home minister, Imkong L. Imchen’s statement that the NPF would win the May 7 by-poll, the NPCC has described it as “only a figment of his imagination.” Media cell NPCC said Imchen’s over-confident statement would be given a befitting reply by the people of 26 Aonglenden A/C on May 7. It said that the winner would be decided not by the home minister but by the voters of the constituency. “The people of Nagaland knew how he won the 2003 and 2008 elections,” NPCC said.
NPCC said that the loser always shout hoarse about winning as it was the only way to save his face. NPCC, said the NPF was nervous and it could be easily gauged from their arrogance and sordid press statements made in the past couple of weeks, crossing all limits of democratic decorum. It accused the NPF of applying “sinister design” to conveniently ignore the charges of corruption during election. It said that the by-election has nothing to do with Naga Political issue as the matter was with the government of India and the Naga undergrounds.
It reminded that the NPF had earlier staunchly defended the minister of SE & SCERT, Nyeiwang Konyak. NPCC said the NPF has still not answered even when the facts and figures were furnished and challenged the NPF to do so. It dared the NPF to refute the earlier charges of misappropriation of funds by the education minister or else its silence would be taken as an admission instead of covertly protecting the minister.. It said the education minister has failed to furnish the detailed expenditure statements till today despite having assured the members of the house.
NPCC said that the focal issue was corruption since it has put the future of Nagaland at stake. The 26 Aonglenden by-elections is a step towards cleansing the seed of rampant corruption sown by NPF, it added.
NPCC claimed that public sympathy was with the Congress and a free and fair election would ensure a resounding victory for its candidate. NPCC said the NPF has realised its votes were corroding every minute despite "pouring in unaccounted and unlimited cash". It said when NPF used the word ‘by hook or crook’ it reflected their frustration and were adopting every possible means to override the mandate of the people.
NPCC appealed the people of Nagaland, especially voters of 26 Aonglenden to take the "first leap" towards a cleaner Nagaland by exercising their franchise and elect Dr. S. C. Jamir. It said all eyes were now fixed on the wisdom of the 26 Aonglenden voters.
