NPF has slammed the much hyped achievements claimed by the PDA government on the occasion of its second anniversary here on March 9.

In a statement, NPF alleged that the second year of the coalition government was marked with plenty of controversy than in the first year and with no achievement. NPF said Naga public are witness that there is no new project or achievement. The NPF said the PDA government simply carried out the old works initiated by the last NPF-led DAN government, and that too in a haphazard manner with no quality works.

Referring to chief minister Neiphiu Rio and deputy chief minister Y Patton’s talks of good governance and transparency, NPF pointed alleged that the government’s promises of providing good roads within 30 days, 60 days, 100 days and to repair all district roads were a total failure even after two years in office. 

According to the party, the tall promises made by the PDA government fell flat as road projects -Dimapur-Golaghat gate to Patkai bridge and Kohima by-pass check gate to Phesama check gate– that were all supposed to be completed within 2019 missed the deadline, while quality of the roads was pathetic and not upto the standards or specifications prescribed by the Union ministry of road transport and highways.

Mentioning about the government proclamation of the Naga talks having been successfully concluded on October 31, 2019, NPF said there was no outcome or solution to the protracted Naga political problem till date. 

The party wondered why the ruling coalition did not even raise an eyebrow when Government of India (GoI) denied Naga civil society leader and human rights activist to travel outside India. 

It was a mystery that when GoI was still engaged with Naga national workers and when the Naga peace process was at its peak, what prompted intelligence agency to prevent leaders and activists calling for peaceful resolution of the decades-old Indo-Naga problem from travelling abroad, the statement added.

Alleging that random backdoor appointments had taken place in almost all government departments by depriving thousands of deserving Naga youths, the opposition party ridiculed the PDA government’s claims of transparency when thousands of vacancies in the government sector had been filled up without proper interview and norms.

And this clearly indicated insincerity of the government towards the educated unemployed youth by depriving them of their rights, it added.

The party further termed Rio’s utterances during the second year celebrations as unbelievable as his government could not bring any new scheme and project during the past two years despite having close relations with the Central government by virtue of its coalition partner being BJP. 

“What more do the people of Nagaland expect for the remaining years with the present government when the working relations between the ruling coalition partners in the State is getting sour by the day,” it added.
