DIMAPUR, March 11 - The Opposition Naga People�s Front (NPF) today rejected the People�s Democratic Alliance (PDA) Government�s �achievements� in the last two years in office. The PDA Government in Nagaland had announced the �achievements� on its second anniversary here on Monday.
In a statement, the press bureau of the NPF alleged that the State Government has failed to launch any new projects even after completing two years in office. It maintained that the PDA Government is only continuing the old projects that were initiated by the previous NPF-led Democratic Alliance of Nagaland Government, and that too in a haphazard manner.
�We have seen how the PDA Government under CM Neiphiu Rio and Deputy CM Y Patton talked about good governance and transparency,� it said.
The NPF said the Chief Minister�s remarks during the celebration are �indeed unbelievable� as the State Government has failed to launch any new scheme and project during the past two years despite having close ties with the Central Government by virtue of running the Government in partnership with the BJP.
�What more can the people of Nagaland expect from the remaining years of the present Government when the working relations between the ruling coalition partners in the State are getting soar day by day,� the NPF said.
The Government�s promise to provide good roads first within 30 days, then in 60 days and then again in 100 days, and repair all the district roads failed to take off even after the passage of two years, it said.
The NPF said road projects in sectors like the Dimapur-Golaghat Gate to the Patkai Bridge and the Kohima bye-pass check gate to the Phesama check gate, which were scheduled to be completed in 2019, have not been completed and the workmanship is also not as per the specifications of the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.
On the PDA Government�s proclamation of successful conclusion of the Naga peace talks on October 31, 2019, the NPF said, �Till date, no outcome has been heard of, forget about the solution to the protracted Naga political problem.�
