Nagaland NPF party criticises ruling PDA Government

Agency News

Kohima, Nov 16 : The Naga Peoples’ Front (NPF) party today said that the present dispensation in Nagaland is rudderless & paralyzed and the state seems most likely to be in emergency state of situation as the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Alliance (PDA) Government has sheer negligence in paying heed to all fronts of developmental activities and failing miserably to exercise in handling law and order situation.

In a official release issued by Press Bureau of the Central Headquarter Naga People’s Front here said that the tall promises of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) led PDA Government of good roads to the people seems reversing as we see the worsening road condition all over the state and particularly the highway between Kohima and Dimapur is at a very hazardous condition.

In the past the leader of NPF Legislature Party had written to the Chief Minister and also to the Managing Director of NHIDCL, appealing them to look into the matter of maintaining the existing road.

The Naga People’s Front party appreciates the High Court for taking up sou moto case on the four-lane construction between Kohima-Dimapur and giving the direction to directionless PDA Government it is a matter of major embarrassment that the state of affairs has come to this point where court has to intervene.

The PDA Government is paying less heed to the ongoing road projects which were brought about and initiated under strict specifications and time frame has brought misery and hardships to the people of the State.

For reasons best known to the Government, the Ministers and the Advisors in-charge, starting from the CMO are in a hurry collecting huge ‘percentage’ from contractors and their concern department wherever normal flow of Central schemes are available.

Therefore, the party recommends that the Governor or the High Court also take up sou moto cases in this regard and save Nagaland from being plundered further. The State Lokayukta may also take up the mantle of investigating and not just be an agent of the government and enjoy the perks for being a mute spectator to the rampant corruption taking place.

The only Airport in Dimapur is now taken over by the IAF and the State chopper service which is operated by the Nagaland State Transport Department was halted for days without any intimation to the commuters. The State Government paid little or no attention to this issue and watched helplessly.

Since the State Government is more or less inactive and in deep slumber to the things happening in the State regarding the law and order situation, the Governor is now taking up the mantle of governing and taking care of law and order situations in the State.

The bottom line is that the Chief Minister and his cabinet colleague should resign on moral grounds as rampant mis-governance is taking place and they have lost all moral authority to continue in office, the release said. (UNI)
