Dimapur, Oct. 12 (EMN): The media and press bureau of Naga People’s Front (NPF) led by former chief minister Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu has reported that a local court has deferred the hearing on the issue of chief whip in the NPF to October 25 next.
“Today’s deferment of the hearing on the whip issue to October 25 next by the Kohima Bench of the Guwahati High Court should not be construed as anything negative or positive for either of the parties since the judge before whom the matter came up for hearing had excused himself from taking up the case on the ground that two of the respondents to the case are his kith and kin.
“The case before the court of law is very simple: Is it the political party or the legislature wing which appoints the chief whip for the party? The tenth schedule of the Indian Constitution does not have even a whiff of mention that the legislature wing appoints the chief whip of the party, but makes it abundantly clear that it is the political party which appoints the chief whip so as to enable it to keep its flock together,” a statement from the publicity wing, issued on Thursday, read.
According to the statement, the ‘whip issue was hanging over TR Zeliang’s government like the proverbial Damocles Sword, and sooner or later, the law will catch up with the wrong-doers and rectify the gross injustices they have perpetrated.’
