NDPP accuses NPF of ‘double standard’

Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) has accused Naga People’s Front (NPF) of having double standards and indulging in doublespeak. 

In a press note, NDPP media & communication committee said the real face of NPF has once again been exposed as its representatives participated in the meetings organised separately by the ruling coalition and the opposition. 

NDPP said in the meeting of opposition parties in New Delhi on Tuesday, NPF was represented by its secretary general and Rajya Sabha member KG Kenye and his PRO Dr SR Nareshram. And in the meeting-cum-dinner organised by BJP national president Amit Shah for all NDA partners on the same day, NPF was represented by its Manipur unit chief, it added. NDPP said Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the meeting of NDA in which NDPP, a constituent of NEDA, was represented by chief minister Neiphiu Rio. But what came as a surprise was that in the list of NEDA partners who attended the meeting released by Himanta Biswa Sarma, convener of NEDA, NPF was mentioned to have been represented by its Manipur unit president, it added. 

Coming at a time when NPF had publicly declared to withdraw support to BJP-led government in Manipur, NDPP said it is not only obnoxious but should be dubbed as the most shameful political gimmickry in recent times. 

“Does the opposition party have not an iota of self-esteem that it has to demean itself so low? And with what audacity did it decide to face BJP, which it had not only hurled insult after insult over the last more than one year, but with its recent decision?” NDPP wondered.

Ridiculing the decision of NPF to pull out of the BJP-led alliance in Manipur after the counting of Lok Sabha polls, NDPP pointed out that the party’s double-speak has been exposed. 

“How much more blatant can NPF become in openly declaring that it wants the cake and eat it too? Is this the kind politics that NPF is going to give the Naga people?” the ruling party asked.

Expressing its shock at the conduct of NPF, NDPP said words cannot describe the amount of lies and deceit the opposition party had been feeding the people, while urging the people to judge for themselves whether the politics of NPF is rife with doublespeak or not, “now that the documents are in the public domain for all too see”.
