A new team of Naga Council Dimapur (NCD) office bearers for the tenure 2020-2025 was installed at Naga Council Conference hall, Dimapur on August 22, 2020 while another faction has reminded that the matter was still in court. 

 NCD general secretary Thsapongkyu Sangtam informed that 30 new councillors took oath during the installation programme.

NCD said that the court of civil judge (Sr. division) Dimapur has inclined to set aside the injunction order dated 09/07/2020 in the interest of justice. 

Councillors reject

Meanwhile, the new councillors have accused the selection commission of “forcefully” giving the report, which they “outrightly rejected”.

In a press release, Vekhosayi Nyekha, on behalf of the new councillors, said that the selection commission’s constitution and existence was disputed and awaiting judgement from the Court of law. He said that the Court has fixed September 10, 2020 for hearing implying that the matter was sub-judice.
