DIMAPUR, May 5 - The Naga People�s Front (NPF) has issued show cause notices to eight of its central office bearers for questioning the decision of the party to suspend seven of its �erring MLAs�.

The party asked the eight office bearers to show cause as to why disciplinary action should not be initiated against them for openly questioning and challenging the decision of the party, which, it said, is in total breach of party discipline. They have been asked to submit their reply within seven days from the publication of the show cause notice.

NPF disciplinary action committee convenor Blaise Iheilung and secretary Tsumongo Ovung issued the show cause notice on Thursday.

The NPF disciplinary action committee said the eight office bearers have also questioned the party�s decision to file disqualification petition against the seven �erring MLAs� who openly defied the party�s collective decision in the recently concluded Parliamentary election for the lone Lok Sabha seat in the State.

The eight central office bearers are S Akang (general secretary), Nokshom (secretary), Bendang Chang (secretary), Honpha (general secretary, youth wing), Kupwang (general secretary, youth wing), Yongwem, Shanyei and Manlem, (all members).

In a separate statement, the NPF expressed surprise that some of its central office bearers, through a press release published in local dailies on Thursday, expressed their opinion against the decision of the party authority to suspend the seven rebel MLAs and file disqualification petition against them in the Speaker�s office.

�As far as the matter of disqualification petition is concerned, the ball is now in the Speaker�s court,� the party said.

�However, the opinion expressed by some of the office bearers should have been actually vindicated instead of issuing a press statement. This attitude of some of the office bearers is unbecoming and against the party ethics and discipline,� the statement said.

The NPF reminded �these office bearers� who are trying to defend the seven erring MLAs that the party functions under the NPF constitution and every member, including the office bearers and the party MLAs, are governed by the party constitution.

Whoever violates the provision of the constitution will have to face the consequences, the release said and added that the action taken so far against the seven erring MLAs is within the constitution.

The eight office bearers on Wednesday appealed to the NPF leadership to revoke the suspension order of seven MLAs and also withdraw the disqualification petitions filed with the Assembly Speaker�s office.
