Congress calls for imposition of 'Presidential Rule' in Nagaland

By Oken Jeet Sandham - Asian Tribune -

Kohima, 24 April (NEPS): The Leader of the Opposition I Imkong has demanded today imposition of the President’s Rule in Nagaland following the total breakdown of law and order situation in the State.

Talking to media persons here in his official residence on Monday, the Leader of Opposition lambasted the DAN government in the state for its complete inaction when the violence erupted in Wungrum Colony in the heart of Dimapur throughout the entire day on Sunday. Over two dozen houses were razed to the ground while dozens of houses destroyed during the mob rampage.Leader of Opposition I Imkong addressing the press at his official residence in Kohima on Monday.

Terming the incident as “very unfortunate,” Imkong said had the government tried to intervene timely, the violence in Wungrum Colony in Dimapur would not have reached such devastating proportions. “That is why we made a wake-up call to the government to maintain law and order,” he stated.

The Leader of the Opposition also said this DAN Government had the notorious track record of claiming that all factional killings that had taken place in the state were not law and order in nature. Although such incidents were very much a law and order problem, he said the incident in Wungrum Colony in Dimapur on Sunday had no relation whatsoever with the factions. “That was why we are demanding imposition of President’s Rule in the State,” he asserted and said “This is a total breakdown of law and order in the State.”
