Either maintain status quo or review portfolios: Zunheboto NPF

KOHIMA, June 25 (NEPS): The fragile TR Zeliang Ministry continues to face blitzkrieg from various NPF District Divisions for what they called his failure to maintain “status quo” of the previous ministry or “discrimination” in portfolio allocations to Zunheboto district, etc.

In a representation submitted to Chief Minister TR Zeliang, NPF Zunheboto Division, while demanding for reviewing of entire portfolios of NPF legislators of the district (Zunheboto) or maintaining status quo, disclosed that only the “sick and improvised portfolios” had been allocated to their legislators. “These portfolios cannot cater to the needs of the people of Zunheboto district,” the NPF Zunheboto Division stated.

Terming as “discrimination” the Chief Minister’s allocation of portfolios to the NPF legislators of the Zunheboto district, the representation further regretted that even the “portfolios of Home, Soil & Water Conservation, and Women Development” had been “snatched away.” Because of this development, schism of opinions had been created among the various party (NPF) loyal men and women in the district, it added.


The Zunheboto NPF Division demanded the Chief Minister either to maintain the “Status Quo” of the previous ministry or review and complete overhaul the entire process of portfolio allocations of the present ministry on or before the next Nagaland Assembly Session for “equal justification.”


It further warned that the entire NPF establishment of the Zunheboto District would remain as “Animated Suspension” if the Chief Minister failed to redress to their demands.
