Dimapur, Feb. 2 (EMN):
Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) is planning to call for a protest in the form of ‘civil disobedience’ all over the districts of Nagaland if the Naga political issue is not resolved “within a reasonable period of time”.

This was informed by the NPCC president K Therie at a press conference held at Hotel Saramati in Dimapur on Sunday.

Therie said that as per a resolution taken on January 17 by the state Congress party, ‘pressing the government of India and Nagaland Governor RN Ravi to provide a political situation without any delay, the party will call for a bandh all over the state’.

According to him, the government of India and the governor should honour the aspiration of the stakeholders.

The talks successfully concluded on October 31, 2019 taking all Naga nationalists on board, with the stakeholders expressing our views. So there is no reason the solution should not be implemented (sic), keeping the people in suspense,” he pointed out.

Therie also demanded that the solution should be ‘implemented under non-political party through non-participatory government where justice and equality is expected’.

He recounted that the regional parties had also assured to pave way for a solution, and hoped that the regional parties will stand by their commitment.

The state Congress party leaders were on a tour to Tizit in Mon district and Longleng town to discuss and interact on the issue of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and by end of this year, they would complete touring the other districts, Therie informed.

“We have observed our 60 MLAs and two MPs ,who have turned out to be toothless and unable to protect the aspiration (of the people) and (provide) safety from the reign of terror (sic). People may not respect the Congress without any MLA or MP but our stand is that we will continue to protect our people from the reign of terror,” Therie affirmed.

“The 60 MLAs have nothing to think but collect funds to repay their debt and money for the next election,” claimed the NPCC chief.

Naga society has accepted bribe and inducement as a way of life and there is no place for justice delivery in the state because money plays a “crucial role”, he said.
