The Eastern Nagaland People’s Organization (ENPO) has taken strong exception to the letter written by R Khing, Advisor, Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Sciences and Women Resources Development, Nagaland addressed to the Commissioner of Nagaland on May 29 last asking the Commissioner to take disciplinary action against a government official by transferring him to remote area.
In a press note issued by the media cell of ENPO representing the entire people of Eastern Nagaland comprising six tribes, namely Chang, Khiamniungam, Konyak, Phom, Sangtam and Yimchunger has sought clarifaction from Khing on the matter.
Khing in the letter addressed to the Commissioner sought disciplinary action against one government official found to be indulged in partisan politics during the last Assembly election in the State.
Khing had urged the Commissioner to transfer the government official to some administrative place in ENPO area.
The release stated that through this action, Khing has ‘exposed the practices and mindset’ of the political leaders of the State irrespective of any parties to use ENPO as a ‘dumping ground for political opponents’.
The release further stated that if any government servant is found guilty, he or she should be dealt as per law, but questioned as to why an important man in his figure (R Khing) indulge in ‘cheap theatrics’ of transferring government employees to ENPO area as ‘punishment’.
In this regard, the ENPO has sought a clear clarification from Khing within two days.
