'State Govt Unable To Protect The Lives & Rights Of Citizens'; NPCC blames Nagaland Government on Peren Killing

Kohima, March 27 (NEx): Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) blamed the state government for the March 22nd, incident in which 3 persons were killed by unidentified miscreants at Lamhainamdi village in Peren district.

It said, the present state of lawlessness in Nagaland where elected government is unable to protect the lives and rights of citizens is a fit case for imposition of President Rule.

‘How long can Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, ignore, just because BJP is part of PDA Government?’ – questions NPCC.

Meanwhile, NPCC President K. Therie in a release said that the incident is a total failure of state government. The incident is not an accident but an after-thought, NPCC stated. It demanded that justice be delivered without fear and prejudice.

Therie said, the NPCC has been observing the inefficiency of the government. Four days and no arrest explains the government’s intention, he added.

Therie said, though the government is fully aware of the situation in the area, it has not been able to make decisions. He added that the people no longer respect the state government under which the subject of public order falls. Condemning the killings, NPCC said the action has shamed the Christian society.

WHS President Resigns:

Meanwhile, Western Sumi Hoho President Dr. Kakheto Zhimomi resigned from his post, owning moral responsibility for violation of 2019-2022 resolution of the WSH, which says no individual or group will be allowed to shed even a drop or blood especially in land dispute cases and matters pertaining to such issues be amicably resolved through negotiations.

Zhimomi in a statement said, March 22nd incident was a total violation of resolution and declaration that has been passed. In view of this, Zhimomi said, he has resigned as President WSH since he has no moral right to hold the office any longer.

ZSUD Holds Candlelight Vigil:
