Two vehicles reportedly burnt down in Kohima

Dimapur, July 16 2017: Two vehicles were reportedly burnt down today by unknown persons near Hotel Vivor in Kohima where supporters of TR Zeliang who are opposing the leadership of Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu are being housed .

Sources said that unknown persons in large number came near the hotel at around 7 pm and burnt two vehicles.

It is still not clear to whom the vehicles belonged .

Some 43 MLAs, both NPF and Independent MLAs, opposing the leadership of Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu have been staying at Hotel Vivor in Kohima for the last two days after they returned from the Kaziranga resort (Assam) .

Meanwhile, the Nagaland Government spokesperson and Minister, Yitachu said that the NPF party is open to a total reconciliation process and "therefore, would not like to place in the public domain the internal matters of the party" .

He said that certain facts need to be placed on record for the people to know since the issue has surfaced in the public domain through certain press releases .

"In the present scenario, the leader of the House is Dr Shürhozelie by virtue of being the Chief Minister and there is no vacancy for the Chief Minister's post," Ytachu said .

According to him, there is no leader of Opposition because it is an Opposition-less Government.

"Even if there is an Opposition party in the Assembly, if the number of MLAs is less than 1/6 of the total number of MLAs, one cannot be termed as a leader of Opposition.

That is why in the 12th House with eight Congress opposition MLAs, their Legislature Party leader could not be termed as leader of Opposition and was not accorded any official status, but only referred to as Congress Legislature Party leader," he added .

The Nagaland Government spokesperson then said that it is unfortunate that the issue which could be resolved in the party and which is purely an NPF internal party problem has now been dragged to the Governor's office and Speaker's office.

"Both Dr Shürhozelie Liezietsu and TR Zeliang are members of NPF and their differences should be decided in the party forum first," he added .

"Human memory cannot be that short: Dr Shürhozelie was forced to take over the CM's office.

On May 26 the DAN Legislators Meeting unanimously endorsed the view that Dr Shürhozelie, should become a Member of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly and work together as a solid team to facilitate the same.

Further, the DAN Legislators appealed to the Election Commission of India to conduct the bye-election for the 10 Northern Angami-I A/C at the earliest," he added .

According to him, TR Zeliang cannot move a no-confidence motion simply because he belongs to the party which, the Chief Minister heads, the NPF party.

"Therefore, Constitutionally and legally Dr Shürhozelie still enjoys absolute majority in the House, because, NPF alone commands 47 members in the House of 60," he added .

"The confidence motion would put the NPF MLAs where they could be disqualified if they voted against the Party Whip.

The MLAs are being misguided to say that the Speaker's office will not disqualify them.

However, the Court is at our door-step and their disqualification will become imminent if the matter is taken to Court because the Constitution and the law of the land is supreme," Yitachu also said .

The reconciliation process should not be treated as one's weakness, he stated.

The people desire for peace, development and progress, Yitachu added.

"The stability of the DAN Government is in the total interest of the people of the State.

Let us not go against the wishes of the people and try to resort to unconstitutional means, but settle differences in party forum through reconciliation.

We should carry forward the constitutional obligations mandated by the people to the DAN coalition," the Nagaland Government spokesperson said.
