DIMAPUR — A day after Lok Sabha MP Tokheho Yepthomi questioned the selective scrutiny of the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) over his statement for revocation of Article 371 (A), the party has hit back at the parliamentarian.

“Why should the lack of our response to the statement of a third party in any way stop us from holding our elected representative to accountability?,” the party asked in a press statement.

It also questioned the need for “a duly elected representative of the highest decision making body in the Nation to borrow the opinion of a third party as some sort of justification for his stand on an issue of such great public importance”.

“As a responsible national party, it is our strong belief that whataboutery can do only so much in bringing closure to discourses of consequential public interest,” it added.

Categorically reiterating its condemnation of the MP’s advocacy for the removal of Article 371(A), and the lack of proportionate censure from the NDPP for the same, the NPCC asserted its commitment in opposing any moves aimed at diluting the rights of the people of Nagaland.
