Expressing deep concern over the health and economic welfare of the people, the Naga People’s Front (NPF) Sunday demanded that the PDA government immediately address the plight of the people, failing which it cautioned that the “starvation war would destroy the whole state.”

NPF through its press bureau asserted that the continuous lockdown has severely affected the weaker sections of the society in terms of their two square meals a day. In this regard, the opposition party asked what programmes and initiatives had the state government taken so far in addressing those issues. 

NPF stated that the prices of essential commodities were skyrocketing, but the government authority so far had remained silent to meet the basic rights of the people.

Further, the opposition NPF said the party was “equally concerned” over the daily rise of COVID-19 positive cases, which it said was now slowly spreading towards the rural areas. It, therefore, demanded that the government seriously address the economic problem of the people.

Admitting that COVID-19 scare was currently one of the biggest threats to the entire world, the NPF, however, said that no government could let its people go hungry. It said the earning for many sections of the society had been by paralyzed for months due to lockdown.

The opposition NPF has also reminded the government to properly sensitize the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine besides make vaccine available to its people.

Meanwhile, the opposition NPF has reiterated the demand raised by its legislature wing that the government set up an inquiry into the government’s financial management during the pandemic. 

NPF reaffirmed its demand of publishing a detailed White Paper on all the funds received and expenditures incurred from 2020-21 to 2021-22 along with all relevant methodology of grants, processes of procurement, disbursement criteria.

The opposition party asserted that it was “high time” the PDA should spill the beans and genuinely work for the welfare of the people.
