NPCC suggests Zeliang’s educational case be tried in other district court
Dimapur, May 24 : Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) while expressing concern over Chief Minister T.R Zeliang filing false affidavit in the nomination papers that he passed B.A in 1980, said it was shocked to come across that the Judicial Magistrate First Class, Peren was transferred right after Guwahati High Court, Kohima Bench in its order referred T.R Zeliang educational case to the judicial magistrate court.
The NPCC reminded the competent authority that the present cross transfer of the Judicial Magistrate First Class, Peren and Phek appeared a sudden arrangement which created doubts on the functioning of judiciary.
NPCC working president P. Ayang Aonok in a press note said, “Under the circumstances it may not be advisable to conduct the case in Peren, since T.R Zeliang belongs to the district.”
In order to have a fair trial of the case, the NPCC suggested shifting the case to nearby district court.
The NPCC mentioned that the NPF is answerable to the people on the conduct of T.R Zeliang and questioned as to how the party was allowing T.R Zeliang to continue as Chief Minister in the NPF government.
“The court of law will come out with its own judgment against T.R Zeliang in due course of time but the NPCC will continue to expose the misdeeds of T.R Zeliang for showing disrespect to the rule of law by filing false affidavit in the nomination papers in the last General Election that he passed B.A in 1980 from Kohima College under North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong and on moral ground he should resign from office.”
