Who is governing the state?

Who is governing the State; the constitutionally elected State government or the de-facto national government? We see off and on, public caution notices issued by one de-facto national government against anti-social/illegal activities in Dimapur and adjoining areas. The caution notices stated that it was done so on public complaints. Does that mean the people have lost confidence in the legitimate State government? Anti-social/illegal activities are law and order problem which is a State subject. The will to check anti-social/illegal activities is cause-worthy but the people of the State has the right to know whether the popular government has out-sourced its policing duty to de-facto government or it has allowed to usurped its authority. The publicity was uncalled for. It can become bad precedence. The State government should show sign of its existence by action to contain law and order problem. It would be wise for de-facto government not to stoop down to the temptation of State administration lest it belittle its own image.
