 NPF Central Youth Wing has issued a rejoinder a day after NDPP youth organization attacked leader of opposition, T.R. Zeliang over the issue of illegal immigrants. 

In the rejoinder, the youth wing through its press and media wing said that “irresponsible statement” of NDPP youth organization has shown the frustrated NDPP led PDA four months old government in running the affair of the state through their “negativism and ulterior motive in handling the state affair”.

The NPF central youth wing said that the youth organization should not deviate the core issue by turning the appeal made by leader of opposition, TR Zeliang into an irrelevant personal issue. 

The statement said that Zeliang had only raised the pertinent issue due to the release of National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam and its likely impact to the state of Nagaland since influx cannot be controlled by checking of Inner Line Permit (ILP) alone. 

It was therefore, essential on the part of the government to deploy additional administrative officers and forces to the border areas, but “the uncertainty on the fate of NDPP and the overwhelming anxiety of its party members stemming from the incompetence of its leader Neiphiu Rio has not only clouded the judgment but also veiled the perception of NDPP workers”, the youth wing alleged. 

The youth wing alleged that NDPP’s habit of shifting blames to others and in viewing issues from the wrong perspective has once again manifested in the public domain. 

With such “immaturity attitude” of the NDPP, the NPF central youth wing said how can the general public expect solution to social problems leave aside the infiltration of illegal immigrants into Nagaland. 

The youth wing questioned NDPP that if it believed that former chief minister, TR Zeliang was responsible for non-effective implementation of ILP during his tenure of four years, then what has the present chief minister, Neiphiu Rio done in streamlining the ILP system in the State during his 11 years as chief minister “during which the rarest of killings, arrest incidents were much higher than during the 4 years rule of TR Zeliang.”

The NPF Central youth wing alleged that chief minister, Neiphiu Rio did not pay heed to the contentious Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016 when civil societies, intellectuals including the NPF party and leader of opposition questioned him on the decision taken by his Cabinet on June 5, 2018. 

It also attacked the silence of the chief minister on his controversial statement on Naga integration issue declared at New Delhi. 

The youth wing also questioned the chief minister of maintaining silent on the four lane road from Dimapur-Kohima National Highway despite clear indication in the contract agreement that the State government was supposed to take up the deteriorating road-condition of the existing two-lane with the concern contractors. 

In view of the above, the youth wing concluded that the deafening silence of the chief minister was due to the reason that there was no financial benefits. 

The NPF central youth wing further demanded that the NDPP youth organization and the chief minister to come out with a clear cut road-map on how to uproot the chronic problem of illegal immigrants in the Naga society instead of taking it to the arena of political parties at this crucial time. 

“The Government of the day should act instead of simply issuing advisories. We should look at the prevailing burning situation and hammer out a solution instead of adding more fuel to the burning house,” the release added.

Therefore, NPF central youth wing has condemned the irresponsible statement of NDPP Youth Organization and asked NDPP to not divert important issues into personal attacks since the issue was for the people and not for any particular political party.
