NPF refutes dy CM`s claim that no one has claimed stake for Tamenglong ADC


IMPHAL, July 31: The Naga People`™s Front (NPF) Tamenglong refuting to the claim made by deputy Chief Minister, Gaikhangam that no one has stake claim to form ADCs for Tamenglong, termed the statement as blatant lie and an attempt to murder democracy.

According to Ashang Pamei, president NFP Tamenglong, stated that the NPF was taken by surprised that such leader would stoop so low and try to misguide the people.

Pamei clarified that the NPF with eight elected members and BJP with five members have formed the Democratic Alliance of Tamenglong and claim majority to form the ADC Tamenglong on at least three counts, on June 19 a week after the announcement of the election results on June 28 and on 13 July after the swearing in ceremony at Tamenglong.

Upon not meeting our request for inviting us to form the council, we had already resorted to a 24-hour total shut down in the hill districts on July 26-27 last and we are still waiting for the State government to take up the required steps, divulged Pamei.

It continued that at this juncture, Gaikhangam making such irresponsible remark is uncalled for and fits condemnation in the strongest term.

Moreover, we demanded to know why Gaikhangam after having wasted so much time dare to blame the majority alliance for the impasse, said the NPF president.

Is the deputy commissioner Tamenglong sleeping over our repeated claim of majority and subsequent stake claims we made to form the ADC Tamenglng, he questioned.

Should the State government continue to dilly delaying the council formation process, people will not remain silent anymore, he maintained adding that it appealed all the right thinking citizens to rise up to defend the constitution.
