NCP Nagaland slams NPF, Cong rhetoric on Naga issue
DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 11 (MExN): The President NCP Nagaland Neiba Ndang is dismayed to note the different positions taken by members of JLF on the Naga political issue. The 19th July resolution of the JLF to ‘pave’ the way and ‘sacrifice’ their seats for a solution to the long drawn Indo Naga political issue was received with great expectations by the Naga people, stated a press note issued by Miathou Krose General Secretary (Admin) NCP Nagaland.
However, the NCP stated that with the passage of time - after the two combined JLF trips to Delhi - it was evident that all was not well even within the JLF members. “The ruling and the opposition members started interpreting the 19th July resolution to suit their own means evading the main issue”, stated the NCP.
The CLP at one time offered to resign within a stipulated time (20th November) to pave the way for a solution and even challenged the ruling members to do the same. However, within a matter of days the CLP came out with another statement that they were not resigning for the time being, then.
The NCP stated that the ruling party on the other hand flatly refused to resign before a solution on the pretext that this may invite a President’s rule. Stating that our state Nagaland has already witnessed impositions of President’s rule in the past even for selfish political reasons, the NCP questioned whether President’s rule for a few months was too high a price to be paid, if at all a solution to the long draw Indo Naga political problem can be arrived at?
Stating that resignation only after a final solution was needless, the NCP pointed out as to how one can claim to be paving the way if it is to be done only after it is black topped? “The JLF should stop fooling the Naga people with mere rhetoric like facilitating, paving the way, or sacrificing”, the NCP stated.
It pointed out that the lack of sincerity and seriousness of the people’s representatives coupled with their contradictory statements may do more harm than good to the issue at hand. “We the Nationalist Congress Party wish to reiterate our resolution that we will give our fullest support for a lasting negotiated and an acceptable solution to the Naga problem”.
