1. It is shocking to observe the policy of the so called oldest regional political party resorting to a strategy of lies, deceit and spread of false propaganda. The NDPP is not concerned about the NPF sponsored complaint letter to the ECI which has signatures and declarations by the NPF president who had recently broken all norms of the Model Code of Conduct and insulted the Constitution of India by seeking votes and support on religious and communal lines and is now on anticipatory bail.
2. Public memory will recollect that when the NDPP was founded on the response to the call of the people, the erstwhile Chief Minister Mr. TR Zeliang had declared on several occasions that the NDPP is unregistered and will never get registered before the assembly elections. However, despite the announcements of the then NPF                       Chief Minister, the NDPP was given registration by the ECI on 13th October, 2017. Subsequently the NDPP was given exclusive use of the globe as its symbol on                    7th December, 2017.
3. In the run up to the general elections the NPF tried all the tricks in its book to strike a deal with the BJP for a pre-poll alliance going to the extent of the erstwhile CM                      Mr. TR. Zeliang announcing falsely of a pre-poll alliance after meeting National BJP President Mr. Amit Shah. This was of course a lie. The NPF president after severing ties with the BJP upon being dislodged from the Chief Minister’s chair by Mr. TR Zeliang, later contradicted himself by saying that NPF and BJP were natural allies. This was again disproved when the NDPP-BJP pre-poll alliance was announced ahead of the polls.
4. Suddenly, the NPF resorted to the most irresponsible and unbecoming campaign of slander, lies and false propaganda again and carried out a strategy on communal and religious lines as it was bereft of any vision or development plan for the State. The affidavit declaration of the NPF’s chief ministerial candidate Mr. TR Zeliang also revealed how he had been living in a world of lies when he finally declared that he was a failed undergraduate. The result was a crushing defeat and outright rejection by the people. But, overnight, the NPF shamelessly went begging to the BJP to share power and they unsuccessfully continue to do so.
5. Then after the formation of the PDA Government, the NPF unleashed its next strategy of spreading false propaganda when it’s so called famed legal expert Mr. Yitachu declared on 12th April 2018 that the NDPP would not be recognized till 2023 and that its MLAs were like independent MLAs. This attempt to spread lies by the so called legal expert and the NPF’s highly acclaimed advocate was once again exposed when the ECI acknowledged the NDPP when formal recognition along with permanent allotment of the election symbol was granted to NDPP by the ECI just 5 (five) days later on    17th April, 2018.
6. In the recently held Lok Sabha bye elections, the unconstitutional and irresponsible campaign was led by no less than former Chief Minister and NPF President                          Dr. Shürhozelie who urged the people to vote for its party candidate on religious and communal lines. For that action of his, the NPF president was compelled to take anticipatory bail.
7. In the same campaign, despite the exposure of Mr. TR Zeliang that he had lied to one and all by falsely claiming that he had passed BA from Kohima College in 1979 though he had failed in all subjects, the NPF once again declared that Mr. TR Zeliang is the Chief Minister in waiting.
8. The NPF is bereft of responsible leadership and continues to be led by a misleading liar and a President on bail. As long as the NPF continues to be led by a person who had lied to every citizen of the State and the country on his false BA pass claim, the NPF has no moral authority to speak on every issue.
9. The latest NPF sponsored complaint to the ECI and the subsequent spread of false propaganda is a desperate attempt by the party to stay afloat after successive electoral defeats and its inability to hold on to its own ground. We assure the public that the complaint to the ECI is a matter that will be replied to and clarified and the matter is politically motivated and hold no water.
10. The NDPP is confident that no section will be convinced or distracted by the by the strategies of continuous lies, deceit and false propaganda which seem to have become the only options for the NPF, a party that is in fast decline and heading towards obscurity.
11. Now the NPF has made another wild allegation that is aimed at creating confusion and adding to its game plan of survival through false propaganda. It has claimed that the NDPP is planning to merge with the JD (U). The JD (U) is a member of the NDA Government at the Centre and also a member of the PDA in Nagaland and it was on these lines that the Nagaland CM and the Bihar CM met on the sidelines of the                    NITI Aayog meeting in New Delhi. The question of merger does not arise.
12. It can only be concluded that a party led by leaders who lie to the public will find no other strategy but to spread further lies instead of sharing its vision or playing the role of a constructive Opposition.
