Govt responsible for delaying solution: NPCC

DIMAPUR, JUL 21 (NPN) | Publish Date: 7/21/2021 1:21:18 PM IST

Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president K Therie has accused the state government of being responsible for delaying the implementation of Naga political solution as they refused to advise the governor to initiate the process.

Since the governor functions on the advice of the council of ministers, Therie said it was constitutionally customary that the governor did not act suo motu when the council of ministers was alive unless there was breakdown of the constitutional machinery. “Therefore, solution is lying in cold storage,” Therie said.

He said governor had time and again made it clear that “talks are over” even in the State Assembly, which also passed Motion of Thanks on the Governor’s address. 

However, NPCC president said that outside the House, the Assembly continues to demand one solution and to resume talks again. 

If PDA honestly wanted solution, Therie said they should advise the governor to implement the solution and assure their support in such implementation.

NPCC chief said the Core Committee on Naga Political Issue during a meeting at Police Conference Hall on July 19 admitted that its demand to resume talks was meant for NSCN(I-M) and not for NNPGs.

Therie claimed that they were afraid to tell the NSCN (I-M) directly and have been “dragging the entire Nagas for they have no fear to the stakeholders they represent.”

NPCC said that the option available for PDA was to advise the governor in a resolution to implement the solution and assure support to implement effectively, otherwise, they should resign and pave the way for governor to implement the solution independently.

Congress also said that the option for the Government of India was to keep the Assembly in suspended animation or dissolve the assembly and implement the solution.

Opposition-less Hindutva govt has disgraced state: NPCC

Stepping up the attack on the move by the opposition NPF to join the ruling PDA government, NPCC asserted that “an opposition-less Hindutva government in Nagaland” has disgraced Nagaland, a Christian state, before the world.

In a press release, NPCC president K Therie alleged that NPF joining the PDA was only to get berths in the ministry and “join in looting the public exchequer.” Therie also claimed said there was nothing they have done or could do to speed up solution.

Further, NPCC expressed shock that NPF party has endorsed its MLAs to join Hindutva when they stood with Congress against CAA and for identity and secularism in the past, adding that it was now history for them.
