Nagaland,KOHIMA, Jan 7 (NEPS): In another major setback to the ruling NPF-led DAN Government in Nagaland, former Minister Dr TM Lotha has resigned as Active and Primary Membership from the Naga People’s Front (NPF) and also as Co-Convener of the DAN Monday.
The former Minister has also resigned from the post of Chairman of the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of the DAN with immediate effect.
In a letter addressed to the NPF President here Monday, the former Minister said the decision of his resigning from the NPF as Active and Primary Membership, as Co-Convener of DAN and as Chairman of the PAC of DAN was taken for the fact that “the Naga people have lost faith and confidence in the Regional Political Party as they see that they have no future in the hands of the Regional Political Party.”
At the same time, Dr Lotha has also declared that he has joined the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). Explaining his joining the NCP, he said they were all aware that the “Nagaland State is 100% dependent State with no revenue and resources of our own.” And they needed more help and assistance from the Central Government and that can only happen by joining a National Political Party, he said adding that because of this importance, “I have joined the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) which is a National Political Party for the greater interest of the State.”
Dr Lotha further assured that if they were voted to “power”, they would bring “more funds from the Center” for all round development of the State.
