Govt has no plan to fund economic growth: Therie

Correspondent KOHIMA, OCT 3 (NPN) | Publish Date: 10/3/2019 12:12:07 PM IST
Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president K Therie has accused the State government of not understanding how to fund the economy, consuming the entire budget, closing the doors of all banks and financial institutions for local entrepreneurs and having no intention to fund the growth of economy in the State.
Addressing the media here after celebrating 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi at Congress Bhavan here, Therie said the youth had lost hope as the State government indulged in nepotism and backdoor dealings, while they remained jobless.
Pointing out that Dimapur-Kohima travel now took six hours, he said the people were fed with poor road condition across the State. While failing to provide good roads to the people, the government was busy buying costly Toyota SUVs and had no shame to drive such vehicles on the pathetic roads, he added.
He said it was time to bring about a positive change in the State.
On Naga political issue, he said the views of the Naga people, elected members, tribal bodies, Nagaland GB Federation and the NPCC was the same for an early solution.
Citing the Parliamentary Standing Committee report no. 213, he said talks between two entities started, for a negotiated settlement like two sovereign nations. However after the signing of the Framework Agreement, both the sides have agreed to settle the issue within the “Indian Federation”. 
The two sides also agreed to not alter inter-state boundaries and also to grant special status for Nagas living outside Nagaland. 
He said when the parliamentary standing committee questioned Centre’s interlocutor RN Ravi on the special arrangement, the latter replied that Nagas were special and hence special status was accorded to them through Article 371 (A). And in a similar manner with some variations, he said the government would try to explore a final settlement.
He said NPCC had decided to support the final deal on the condition that there would be proper re-settlement of widows, orphans and genuine workers. He hoped the governor would stand by his word.
He also hoped that Government of India would live up to its commitment and realise that people too were for a final solution to the vexed Naga issue at the earliest.
Therie said that thought there may be some differences, but people were desirous of a political solution. He however said that no political solution is final as political solution and structures are improved with time. Therefore it was not necessary to assume that the present solution would be the end of the world. 
Therie said there will be a time, where the new generation will carry the legacy and history to develop the political structures and infrastructure as per their need, for the growth of economy and also for the growth of community and advancement.
