'PDA Govt evading questions because they have no answers' - NPF

Kohima, June 09 (NEx): The Naga People’s Front (NPF) reiterates that the PDA Government must answer the various queries raised so far rather than shying away from its responsibility, as in a democracy every elected government is answerable to the people that it represents.

The NPF in a press statement on Wednesday said it is taken aback by the response of the PDA Government stating that the opposition is hurling allegation without any authenticity which is nothing but an attempt to divert the attention of the general public. The party’s Legislature Wing has raised some pertinent issues with facts and figure in matters relating to misuse of fund by the PDA Govt. on the pretext of tackling COVID-19 which the PDA government is evading the questions because they have no answers, it said.

The Party said it has raised some vital issues with data obtained from various district hospital, CHC and PHC on the shortfall of the basic medical necessity in government run hospitals as the PDA government have been fooling the people by claiming the government is fully prepared. Hence, whatever the Party and the Legislature Wing have raised till date in the public domain are all supported with facts and figure which the PDA government cannot run away without answering as the matter pertains to public interest and not the NPF, it stated.

The questions yet to be answered by the PDA Government is on the investment of Rs. 30 Cr. to CIHSR Hospital, arrangement or payment of ex-gratia grant to the family of the deceased and additional grants to the families of those affected, utilization of 50% from SDRF Disaster Management, possibility to have starvation war when there is zero earning by daily bread winner and no relieve measures by the PDA government to rescue the poor and needy.
