NPGN/NNC at its cabinet emergency meeting on July 1 has discussed on the “propaganda” spread by T. Ovung and further clarified that the appointment of vice president as claimed by Ovung was baseless. 

In this regard, MIP of NPGN/NNC said that the house thoroughly rectified the entire scenario and adopted the following resolution. 
As per the official discussion made on May 31, 2019, the NPGN/NNC (NA) shall continue to function under the leadership of interim president, Shoba Lakham and ato kilonser, Z. Hozhito Chophy. Therefore, it resolved that no other group/individual will be allowed to use the name of the “legitimate governor” for their personal gain. 
The cabinet has also unanimously resolved to not allow any group/individual to conduct any meeting without obtaining proper authorization from the higher authority.
It claimed that T. Ovung, the then acting president of NPGN/NNC has been terminated from the membership and therefore should not be allowed to use the name of NPGN/NNC any longer. However, if he wants to set up a new organization, he must not use the name of NPGN/NNC, the resolution stated. 
The cabinet also warned Ovung that if he continue to use the name of NPGN/NNC in any matter, he shall be held solely responsible for his act of “ignorance and unethical statement”. The house also unanimously resolved to maintain peaceful atmosphere and continue to co-operate and uphold the principle of non- violence in the interest of Nagas in general. Further, the house appealed to the entire Naga nationals and well wishers to support and pray for the amicable solution of the long protected Indo-Naga political issue at the earliest. It also resolved that no individual / group shall be allowed to use the name of the bonafide in NPGN/NNC government for their personal gain.
Meanwhile, in a separate statement, NPGN/NNC education kilonser, M. Toshi Lemtur clarified that the news statement made by T. Ovung, who claimed to have appointed M Toshiba Ao as NPGN/NNC vice president was “baseless” and has instead tarnished his image.  Lemtur clarified that Ovung was no longer a member of NPGN/NNC and has no authority to use the name of the aforesaid government. In this regard, Lemtur has directed Ovung to apologize publicly within five days with immediate effect. In the event of failure to comply, T. Ovung shall be held responsible for his “ignorance and misguiding sentiments”, the statement stated.
In another statement, NPGN/NNC Ao region has condemned the appointment of M. Toshiba Ao as vice president. Chairman Ao region, Imkong Pongen clarified that there “was no person by the name of M. Toshiba Ao” under the NPGN/NNC Ao region membership. 
It therefore, asked T. Ovung to give the details about the above the mentioned name of the individual within five days. In case of failure to comply, the chairman cautioned that the Ao region will take up the case to the “extent of Tribal issue as it is a serious matter of tarnishing the prestige of Ao Tribe and a serious matter of disrespecting the NPGN/NNC”.
