Dimapur: The Rising People’s Party (RPP) claimed that it has been upholding its principles of good governance and rule of law. The youngest political party based in Nagaland has also said that it constantly has been highlighting/exposing various wrong doings of the present government and garnering the support of the Naga public to rectify such inequitable issues for the sake of a better Nagaland.
“One such issue on which the RPP cried foul is the most recent political manipulation by the ruling government for the illegal/irregular extension of the DGP of Nagaland against which manoeuvre, the Rising People’s Party had no other option but to approach the Union Ministries and the Supreme Court of India to avail justice, and as such the Nagaland Law Students’ Federation and Vitho Zao (RPP vice president) filed a petition in the Supreme Court,” the RPP added.
The RPP then said that, while keeping a neutral stance, it “affirms that the present government leaders have been appointed by the people for the benefit and progress of the Naga people and not for any individual’s unending rapacity.” While acknowledging the prime role of the apex court and the UPSC for the appreciable turn of events, the RPP also lauded outgoing DGP John Longkumer “for making the right move to shun away from unjust and corrupt practices.”
Also, the RPP said that, in its letter to the union government, the party clearly indicated along with written proof, that the move to retain the present DGP is solely for political reasons and in total contempt of service rules and regulations. The RPP said it “completely discourages such blatant sly tactics practised by the present leaders for unfair advantage and hopes that such acts will be condemned by all.”
The RPP then “wholeheartedly thanks” John Longkumer for his diligent service to the people of Nagaland and also ardently envisages that the incoming DGP will uphold the rule of law and not be persuaded or inclined by political pressures while performing his/her duties for the welfare of the Naga people.
