NPF accuses ACAUT

DIMAPUR, Mar 27 : The Naga People’s Front (NPF), Central has accused corruption watchdog of Nagaland, Against Corruption and Unabated Taxation (ACAUT) of acting as the “sole authority” charging ACAUT of poking its nose into everything.
In a statement issued to the press today, the NPF said the attention of the NPF Central office has been drawn to the statement of the ACAUT published in the local dailies on Monday implicating the party president and Chief Minister Dr Shurhozelie Leizeitsu in connection with an unstarred question raised in the ongoing Assembly session.
“The ACAUT members are advised to first clean their own house first before they launch their hateful tirade against the democratically elected leaders and the Government,” the NPF said in the statement.
According to the NPF , ACAUT has been poking its nose into everything “as if it is the sole authority to pass judgment on the daily affairs of the Government that is carried out in the best interest of the people”.
The NPF alleged that the ACAUT members, who talk against corruption, are in fact having close links with corrupt market monopolies.
“While trying to be the champions and crusaders against corruption, the NPF clearly understands the motive behind the members of ACAUT that they are players of back-door politics looking for easy entry by confusing the minds of the general public under the guise of raising corruption issues,” the NPF said, adding, “To begin with, ACAUT members should declare their personal incomes and assets both movable and immovable, and the years of public service they have rendered if they are to talk of corruption-free society”.
The NPF statement then said that the public know each and every member of the ACAUT, “and they should not claim or act to be free from corruption”. NPF said that the party challenges ACAUT members to first face election and talk with the mandate of the people “rather than bark against the mandated Government every time it does something for the people”.
The NPF claimed that jobs are given to deserving Naga youth who possess requisite qualifications, and not to any outsiders or undeserving candidates.
It further said that the appointments are given to the unemployed youth only. “When the honorable Chief Minister has stated on the floor of the august house that mistakes, if any, will not be repeated in the future, what more is expected of the Government of the day?,” the NPF asked.
The NPF said it will appreciate any opinion and suggestion placed before the elected authority for corrective measures for the welfare of the people.
“However, we cannot agree to the dire consequential statements every time issues are raised spewing political venom against the NPF party. That the ACAUT has been tirelessly working to bring down the Government and bring President’s Rule in the State at the behest of vested interests, exposes their desperate overtures for political opportunity. Moreover, the ACAUT inciting youth to vote against NPF party in 2018 clearly exposes their political intentions,” the NPF added.

Political crisis triggered by the opposition to 33 percent reservation of women in Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) resulted in tribal bodies seeking Chief Minister TR Zeliang’s resignation. Nagaland Tribes Action Committee (NTAC) which is spearheading movement against 33 percent reservation is insisting on the resignation of Zeliang.
There was large-scale arson in Government properties in Kohima and two person was killed in clashes with police, the Government offices are non functional since January 28 and State is witnessing series of bandhs.
As an alternative MLAs of DAN coalition had backed Dr Shürhozelie Liezietsu president of NPF for the Chief Minister ship. However former Chief Minister and Lok Sabha MP from Nagaland, Neiphiu Rio too has joined the race of Chief Ministership making the political scene further complicated.
With creation of seven new districts in Manipur which has invited economic blockade from United Naga Council (UNC) on two highways since November 1 last year Congress is expecting to gain some seats in hills. Congress stronghold in Manipur has remained confined to valley.
Political analysts opined that ongoing tussle in Nagaland will impact NPF’s performance for most of their leaders have given campaign a miss. “Congress is going to gain from it however larger gainer will be BJP.”
For 60 member Assembly the polls will held in two phases on March 4 and 8.

Want to solve all issues : NPF

IMPHAL, Feb 19 : Naga People’s Front’s objective is to solve any issue but the State Government is interested in blaming any organisation that agitates instead of addressing the issues.
This was stated by NPF president Awangbou Newmai while speaking to mediapersons at the party office located at Dewlahland.
Awangbou Newmai said, “Any organisation of the State while launching any agitation, the Chief Minister can solve the issues amicably. However, the Chief Minister would worsen the issue by indulging in blame game. As such, people of Manipur can no longer live in peace.”
“Nobody including NPF wants economic blockade or bandh to be imposed. The State Government should consider the sentiments of the people. Not only that, the State Government has even alleged NPF for misleading the people,” Awangbou Newmai said.
