DDGBA ‘selected office-bearers’ clarify

DIMAPUR, APR 12 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/12/2021 1:02:44 PM IST

Selected office-bearers of Dimapur District GB Association (DDGBA) have claimed that the ‘selections/search committee’, through a majority decision, selected GB Longri Jamir as president DDGBA in accordance with Art. 8 of the Nagaland GB Federation (NGBF) constitution and Art. 14 of the DDGBA constitution.

DDGBA gen. secretary Nieba Kesiezie and information secretary Luikang Namgi in a rejoinder said the issue of the search committee not being qualified because they had not paid membership fee in time, did not hold any water. As responsible GBs, they said all of them had been clearing the membership fees regularly and could be verified from the office. They said the issue raised was a trivial matter and an excuse to oppose the legitimately-selected office-bearers that was unreasonable. 
They said the selections/search committee comprised of-- GB Union Dimapur Sadar president MY Ngullie as convener ; GB Union Dhansiripar president P Dohoi Swu; GB Union Chümoukedima president Tokishe Achumi; GB Union Niuland president Vikheyi Zhimomi and GB Union Medziphema president Rokovitso Kuotso as members. The signatories said even at the general conference held at Diphupar B on November 24, 2018, the majority decision of Search/ Selection Committee was accepted and supported by majority of the GBs present. They accused the opposing party of riding roughshod over the majority decision and agreement by deciding to hold an election themselves. They said this was totally against the constitutions of NGBF and DDGBA which have provision of democratically giving a chance to every tribe to serve in the association on a selections and rotation basis.
Further, they said that the process of having an election where only 25 members voted for the president was duly opposed by most tribal GB associations/unions of Dimapur, who had condemned and opposed this through press releases in the media. 
They alleged that the dubious part played by NGBF officials in attending the election process was totally against Art. 8 of the NGBF constitution, whose very presence seemed to encourage the “illegal election process” by giving tacit support for going against the constitution. Therefore, they said the votes of 25 GBs of Dimapur could not be interpreted as majority of the whole DDGBA.
