Yollow, Moatoshi Longkumer and Muthingnyuba Sangtam as members 

The committee has also been empowered to choose co-opt member/members whenever necessary. 

NPF Working Committee during its meeting on August 26 decided to constitute PAM following withdrawal of its legislators from the Joint Legislators’ Forum on Naga political issue.

PAM will function independently: LoP

Leader of Opposition Party (LoP), T.R Zeliang Friday said that the recently constituted Political Affairs Mission (PAM), which comprises NPF officials and NPF Legislature Party (NPFLP), would function independently.

Talking to Nagaland Post, convenor of the newly formed Political Affairs Mission, TR Zeliang, said the main objective of PAM was to persuade NSCN (I-M) and Working Committee (WC), Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs) to arrive at mutual understanding and continue the dialogue with the Government of India for “final inking”.

The former chief minister further said that PAM would continue to carry out the mission as facilitator. He said that since NPF was no longer “part and parcel” of JLF, the newly formed PAM would function independently.

Zeliang said that the JLF was defunct without the opposition party. Zeliang pointed out that during “opposition-less” government the forum was known as Nagaland Legislators Forum (NLF). However, with opposition and the ruling party together, he said the forum was known as JLF.

“There is no more JLF because without the lone opposition party how can they use the name JLF. Ruling PDA alone cannot use the name JLF, they should call it the PDA Legislators Committee or PAC created in 2018,” said Zeliang.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
