TR Zeliang, PYF accuses petition filed by chairman

Dimapur, February 25 (MExN): Minister for Planning and Coordination, TR Zeliang has termed the petition filed by one Haisobi, Chairman of Peren Village Council against shifting of government  offices to Peren New district Headquarter (Model Township site) and subsequent withdrawal of signature from the MoU and sales deed as an attempt to stall speedy development in the new site.

Addressing the village Council chairmen and government officials on Friday at the New DC Complex during a DPDB meeting, TR Zeliang also said that the willful opposition of government plan to expedite the develop in New headquarter complex by way of petitioning in the Guwahati High Court, Kohima Bench against the shifting of offices and withdrawal of signature from the MoU by a person who is not a party to the whole issue was unjustified and baseless. He also said that govt. has paid a major chunk of land compensation for establishing Peren model district headquarter to the land owner, as such the withdrawal of consent and signature from MoU, that too by a person who was not a signatory and without consulting other two villages namely Kejanglwa and New Peren Villages who were part of MoU, is unjustified and illegal.

Stating that the Peren New district headquarter site is not for one or two villages but belongs to the people of whole Peren district, Minister said that further obstruction of developmental works by any person or organization will cost the people dearly, and urged upon all concerned to cooperate. He also said that government’s plan to shift all offices to the new site is to expedite the developmental works. The Minister also urged upon the officials of the North East Livelihood Project to implement the project effectively. He assured that no political monopoly will be there in its implementation process.

Meanwhile, the Peren Youth Federation (PYF) has also termed the petition file by Peren Village Council against shifting of all govt. offices to new headquarter complex (Model Township) and subsequent withdrawal of consent and signature from MoU as a unilateral decision of its chairman Haisobi. In a letter addressed to Deputy Commissioner Peren, the PYF said that the Peren Village Council represented its Chairman Haisobi has unilaterally filed a petition “deliriously at his own vested interest which is incoherent and irrational”.

 The PYF also stated that the three villages namely Peren Village, New Peren and Kejanglwa Village had consensually signed the MoU collectively referred as one part of vendor with the court on 3rd July 2006, subsequently, the sales deed was signed on 24th November 2009, therefore, the question of withdrawal of consent and signature by Peren Village alone from the MoU and sales deed and the case filed by Mr. Haisobi who is not a signatory in the MoU is illegal and should be treated as null and void as this does not command the mandate of the Peren people in general. It requested the government to expedite all necessary development at the New Headquarter Complex including shifting of DC office, while asserting that the PYF is firm and committed to signed MoU on Peren district headquarter.
