The 24-Angetyongpang Independent Party A/C leaders have expressed shock and dismay at the PDA government’s move to “strip” off the Road and Bridges portfolio from minister Tongpang Ozukum in proposed reshuffle.

At the meeting held on July 20 with presidents of all 12 units under 24-Angetyongpang Independent party, the parent body president Nungshimangyang and general secretary Repachuba appealed to chief minister, deputy CM, PDA chairman and co-chairman retain Tongpang Ozukum as R&B minister.

They pointed out that it was a commitment made to Tongpang, for which he had supported the PDA coalition to form the government, or else it would have been a ‘Hung Assembly’.

They said Ozukum, as PWD minister, during the past one year proved his enthusiasm and capability as a promising upcoming Naga leader. The party men termed it as “utterly unfair and unjustified” considering the contribution made Tongpang Ozukum. Even during the two MP (Lokh Sabha) elections, they said Angetyongpang A/C delivered the best performance under the dynamic leadership of Ozukum.

The party workers, from the grassroot to the top party leadership, resolved to firmly stand behind Ozukum in whatever situation or decision he takes and “unequivocally support him now and even in the days to come.” The declaration was unanimously endorsed by presidents of all 12 units.
