Zeliang takes on Rio in electioneering

TUENSANG: Nagaland electioneering heat and dust gathers momentum with NPF and NDPP engaged in a bitter blame game. NDPP has called NPF a gang of betrayers while the ruling party has asked the people not to repose faith on the newly floated party.    

 NPF leader and Chief Minister TR Zeliang slammed Neiphu Rio and NDPP alleging lack of agenda to serve the restive state. Addressing a few poll rallies in Mon, Longwa and Aboi under Mon district on Tuesday, Zeliang said, “Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) as a Party engaged in 'politics without agenda.”

 

He said, 'the Manifesto of NDPP is TR Zeliang as Rio has been talking only about me and nothing more during his entire Campaign across the State.”Zeliang narrated how a false Certificate was enclosed with Rio's nomination papers during the Lok Sabha election in 2014 which later came up in North Police Station, Kohima for investigation.

 

Rio had then blamed his Personal Secretary for obtaining a fake Certificate while the Principal and Vice Principal of Kohima College were made to apologize publicly, he recalled. On corruption during Rio's tenure as Chief Minister, Zeliang elucidated that it was Rio who had 'landed the State in a deficit of Rs. 1234 Crores after which he left for Delhi.'
