Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) on Wednesday said that the NPF was desperately attempting to cover up its selfish motive behind Naga political situation.

NPCC through its communication department said that the NPF rather than engage in “hollow talks,” it must tell the people of Nagaland on how “opposition-less” government plans to resolve the Naga political issue and that they should be transparent with their proposals of solution to stakeholders rather than “bark back” at those who show them the “mirror of truth”.

Going by the statement of NPF, NPCC stated that people of Nagaland praying for unity and corrupt free government was being misconstrued as praying for opposition-less government. It said that after totally surrendering their much acclaimed regional pride at the feet of “Hindutva forces”, NPF has even started to interpret the prayers of the faithful to justify their desperation and indulgence to sail in different boats.

NPCC also cautioned NPF along with NDPP and BJP to stop using Naga political issue as “dog whistle” before the people with a tacit aim to put all other important issues of governance into cold storage and exploit the benefits of power that has plundered the state exchequer empty.

For Congress, NPCC said the opposition-less government has nothing to do with Naga political solution. “If the elected members are serious enough, they must pave the way by resigning or the council of ministers should advice and aid the Governor in implementation of solution which has been put in “cold storage”, it said and further added that this was also the commitment of legislators in every resolution they had passed on Naga political issue and the present situation demands that they walk the talk.
“NPF need not remind us of being rejected or accepted by the people, as NPCC which carries the legacy of NNO is the founding father of the state and we cannot ignore the interest of our people yearning for peace, progress and development,” NPCC also added.

Lamenting that some Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have openly come out in support of opposition-less government, NPCC also said that this exposes their limited understanding about functions of democracy where strong opposition plays an equally important role in matters of governance and added that Nagas does not deserve democracy if disdain for opposition party and its leaders continues to envelope the mindset of the majority.

NPCC further reminded that leaders of CSOs must not succumb to the manipulations of those in power when a complete mockery of democracy is being played out.
