“The unprecedented drama of power struggle being enacted by the NPF legislators for the past one week should make every sensible Naga people to hang their heads in shame. The patience of the Naga people is worth appreciating since the NPF despite miserably failing on all fronts keeps getting voted to power for three consecutive times. It is high time that the public stop expecting NPF to fulfill their tall promises and take them to task for making a mockery of democracy through their constant power struggle and failed promises,” Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) said in a press statement.

“The people of Nagaland will not be fooled by the recent decision of the cabinet that promises stronger, better and cleaner government. More than 14 years of blatantly looting the state exchequer and incurring huge deficit of Rs. 1657.87 crores and driving the state backwards cannot be wished away by some sugar coated promise. Whether be it former CM Neiphiu Rio, TR Zeliang and present CM Dr Shurhozelie, all three of them including their cabinet and coterie are fully responsible for the sordid state of affairs plaguing the state today,’ the statement said.

The statement further said that “Naga people have had enough of the drama enacted by NPF legislators who have thrown all political principles and morality into gutter. Their sole aim of grabbing power is to abuse the public exchequer and this is being tolerated by the Naga people for too long. The state has been scorched dry in all aspects by the misgovernance perpetrated by the NPF for the past 14 years. The patience of the people has been stretched beyond its limits and the present pathetic situation should awaken the people to realize its power to reject the corrupt and visionless party of NPF.”

NPCC reiterates that “the present government led by Dr Shurhozelie has been reduced to miserable minority and the Governor instead of indulging in his usual procrastination that prolongs the political suspense should intervene immediately by dismissing the minority government and recommend imposition of President’s Rule in which the NPF will be solely responsible. The only respite for the people of Nagaland will be through imposition of President’s Rule that will restore some normalcy before fresh assembly election is called.”
