NDPP indulging in blame game: NPF

DIMAPUR, NOV 1 (NPN) | Publish Date: 11/1/2019 12:09:19 PM IST

NPF through its Press Bureau, has said the ruling NDPP’s “ blame game and continual effort to sow seeds of dissent within the NPF party” was “nothing but absolute pathetic, unethical and juvenile”. NPF said it was expected that the ruling party would be “more matured” and not resort to such measures that only serve to expose the insecurities and trust deficit within the ruling party.

To NDPP’s charge that T.R. Zeliang’s statement was “misleading” on the controversy regarding the letter to NLA speaker for summoning of the Joint Legislature Forum, NPF said  this only showed that NDPP has no concern for the Naga political issue but only “for their chair and future position in a post-solution scenario and lobbying in Delhi for the same.”   

NPF Press Bureau said the party under the leadership of T.R. Zeliang had the “decency and genuine concern for the Naga cause” and thus took the responsibility to ring “the sleeping bell of the government” but this positive attitude “has been misconstrued”. NPF said the NDPP has only “mastered the art of finding faults even when there is none” by accusing NPF of “misleading the Nagas”. NPF said the letter from the deputy speaker addressed to the Leader Of Opposition(LOP), in the second para, informed that the former’s office had not received any intimation from the CMO on the desire to represent JLF/PWC on Naga political issue before the central government. NPF said this spoke volumes about the CM’s concern for the Naga people.

Further NPF mentioned that  after the October 4 meeting was cancelled at the eleventh hour, another date was proposed to which the LoP clarified to the deputy speaker that  as some MLAs would not be in station on October 7 and 9 due to prior engagement and therefore, suggested either October 11 for the proposed JLF meeting.

NPF said in response, the deputy speaker said he would  get  in touch with the CMO and revert back but there was no further response for  the JLF meeting on Naga political issue. In the light of the emergent need for MLAs as facilitators to deliberate on the issue for an early solution, as the Interlocutor had issued October 31 as the deadline, NPF said the LoP wrote to the speaker.

NPF said it was expected of the CM not to “misguide and make a scapegoat of the deputy speaker” for his own “selfish hidden agendas” since  the deputy speaker was  young and an upcoming leader.

NPF also wondered how a letter by the LoP requesting for holding the JLF meeting at an early date “has hurt the sentiments of the CM and the NDPP.”

NPF reiterated that it will continue with its commitment towards facilitating a final solution irrespective of how its adversaries attempt to break the party. NPF asked its adversaries not to engage in “mere paper war” but to voice for oneness among Naga leaders at a crucial juncture to deliver best justice to Naga people.

NPF also expressed  gratitude to prime minister Narendra Modi, union home minister Amit Shah for their deep concern for solving the Naga issue which has today borne fruit after the Naga negotiating groups and the government of India’s Interlocutor came to a mutual understanding on October 31.

NPF also congratulated the NSCN (I-M) and seven-member WC of NNPGs for arriving at an understanding for a final accord and also expressed gratitude to all CSOs and organisations who stood by and prayed for an amicable solution to the Naga political imbroglio. NPF said it would also continue to uphold all parties involved in the negotiations with prayer so that there would be no hiccups on the way before inking the final accord.
