Dimapur, Feb. 8 (EMN): Following the arrest of one Gambeu Zeliang on Feb. 7 by Peren police on charges of flouting the election Model Code of Conduct (MCC), the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) unit of 7th Peren assembly constituency (AC) has alleged that the accused is an uncle of Chief Minister TR Zeliang.
In a letter of complaint addressed to the returning officer in concern, the party has demanded immediate disqualification of the chief minister since “he was the man behind all these anti-social activities being carried out in the district.”
It alleged that the chief minister had been using Gambeu Zeilang as “his right hand man for all his nefarious activities in wooing the innocent voters and has been distributing CGI sheets even after the election code of conduct was enforced in the state.”
On this ground, the letter demanded, the official should immediately disqualify Zeliang’s candidature at 7th Peren AC. The returning officer informed that the complaint has already been forwarded to the Peren district police authorities.
According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Peren police, a complaint has been registered and investigation was underway. “We have received the information regarding the complaint and investigation will take some time. This is the only information we could gather and also report to the district administration,” he said. He added that necessary action according to the law and under the election Code of Conduct would be taken. As of now, Gambeu Zeilang is in police custody.
