: Expressing shock at the assassination attempt on Imtizungla Jamir by one Worhsim (Ashim) Tangkhul and his accomplice, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) Monday said no word was sufficient to condemn such ghastly act on a woman.
NPCC media cell said the culprits committed a crime of the highest degree and causing a deep scar on the modesty of women and added that such men who have no respect for their own mothers have no place in a civilized society.
NPCC also said condemnation by words, however harsh cannot heal the injury. NPCC also said the incident also proved beyond doubt as also aired by various NGOs and civil societies, that the citizens, particularly, vulnerable women and children were no longer safe even in their own homes.
Accusing the state government of failing to protect lives and properties of its citizens, NPCC wondered what security could citizens expect from a government whose home minister “talked like a rebel leader”
“Is this what the home minister called most peaceful law and order situation in the country?” asked NPCC media cell.
NPCC said that for a home minister who did not hesitate to admit errors in public but refused to own moral responsibility; it would not be a surprise if the incident was brushed aside as another “stray/isolated incident” or even dismiss the opposition’s voice as “politically motivated”.
Asserting that public would know the worth of the government only from its action taken report, NPCC took a dig saying that the taking over of the case by outside agencies further meant “non-existence of the popular government.”
NPCC also appealed to citizens to go beyond condemnation by words and ensure that the onus of responsibility should be fixed.
It said a government which expressed helplessness in the past by shifting blame on public for not cooperating by not sharing information. “cannot be relied upon for citizens’ security”. NPCC took a jibe saying that citizens “know very well” whether the situation that they were in today, was conducive for sharing information.
NPCC said if the state government was of the opinion that people were not cooperating with its government, it could only mean that government has lost public confidence.
