DIMAPUR, Sept 25 - KG Kenye, Rajya Sabha MP from Nagaland and secretary general of NPF led by Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu, has said that if NPF party were to be dismantled, it would be a colossal loss to the people of Nagaland and no one will be able to build the damaged bridge under any circumstance.
Reacting sharply against the statement made by Lok Sabha MP Neiphiu Rio who claimed that the party constitution has been changed at the whims and fancies of the present leadership, Kenye said the constitution amendment was done on July 13, 2015 after Central Executive Council (CEC) of the party endorsed the amendments and authorised its president Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu to do the needful and added that the members themselves voted in favour of the amendments.
�The president did not by-pass the CEC and so the allegation is baseless and unfounded,� he said while addressing media persons at NPF Central office in Kohima recently.
On the allegation that extra constitutional power was exercised by the president, Kenye clarified that under the 7th amendment Article V it mentioned about the powers and functions of the president and in the new constitution, 8th amendment, nothing was changed from 7th amendment under the �Powers and Function of President�.
On the ultimatum served to NPF president, Kenye reiterated that there was no provision in the constitution to impeach the president.
