State BJP breaks silence on lawlessness

By Oken Jeet Sandham – Asian Tribune

Kohima, 05 October, ( The coalition partner of DAN Government, BJP has broken its silence on the spurt of lawlessness and the Government’s indulgence in nepotism and corruption in various areas.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, BJP State General Secretary Eduzu Th Vadeo said the BJP State Office Bearers had in their meeting on Tuesday expressed unhappiness on the State Government’s “miserable failure” in maintaining law and order in the State. There had been on the rise in the incidence of killing, extortion, looting and illegal taxation. But the Government had justified its “inability and helplessness” by terming it as “political problem and not a law and order problem.”

Expressing dismay on the indulgence of nepotism and bias attitude of the Government in awarding works and supply orders, the statement further charged that the Government had flouted all the norms in awarding construction works of 9 IRB headquarters at Saijang worth Rs 39 crore at the rate of 85% above the scheduled rate, thereby robbing the State exchequer. It also accused the Government of siphoning off Rs 25 crore from the industrial transport subsidy and also manipulation of medical seat from the Government quota, giving away the canning factory to a private party at a throwaway price without following norms and misusing of civil supplies materials.

The BJP also came down heavily on the Government that it should compensate the razing of 30 houses at Jalukie Zandi and also the Inavi Village grievances at the earliest.

Stating that the prevailing lawlessness in the State showed clearly the breakdown of government machinery, the BJP further urged that the concerned Minister should resign from his position on moral ground for his inability to contain the spurt of violence in the State. “If he does not resign, the State Governor should immediately intervene in it,” it added.
