DIMAPUR, JULY 17 (MExN): The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) today stated that the “concern expressed by the Governor of Nagaland PB Acharya to the NPF legislators urging not to break the NPF-BJP alliance is unbecoming of a person holding the highest constitutional office in the state.”
A press note from the NPCC alleged that the Governor’s “RSS upbringing does not entail him to demean the office of the Governor since his partisan attitude to benefit BJP-RSS game plan in the state has been exposed more often than once.”
It further said that the “spineless legislators and more particularly the NPF has been giving undue advantage to the Governor by their constant power struggle which is allowing the Governor and BJP-RSS to keep fishing in troubled waters.” Our elected legislators who have been in the news more for wrong reasons than any achievements have lowered our dignity in the eyes of the people across the country through their insatiable hunger for power, the Congress said.
The NPCC termed it unfortunate that the people of Nagaland are living in “one of the worst eras of governance under NPF.” “The deafening silence of our people except some few noble souls during the past 15 years has emboldened the pack of power hungry NPF leaders and a partisan Governor to continually take people for granted. The only recourse for the people to set things right will be to reject these so called leaders who are actually power mongers without any sense of political principles or morality,” it viewed.
It meanwhile reminded the Nagaland Governor that “his blatant way of functioning to protect the interest of NPF-BJP alliance has brought disrepute to the office he occupies.” “The past occupants of Raj Bhavan at Kohima, many of whom were eminent personalities, intellectuals and seasoned politicians had maintained the sanctity of the office despite their political affiliations which were shelved during their tenure,” the NPCC pointed out.
