The Naga Peoples’ Front (NPF) has asked all government servants to desist from involving themselves in political agitation against the government “or face dire disciplinary repercussions.”

A press note from the NPF central said it has observed the “involvement and participation of some government servants in the ongoing agitation imposed by some few individuals posing as volunteers of JCC and NTAC.”

It further alleged that “some of the government servants are even funding the agitation which is unbecoming of government employees.” The party, it stated will submit a report on this issue to the government “demanding that stern action be taken against those involved (government servants) in the protest.”

The NPF also alleged that the “ring leaders” of the agitation have “instructed the tribal Hohos to collect money from various individuals from their own respective communities/ tribes.”

It further alleged that there had been meetings personal contact “between JCC and few politicians who are out of power now,” before the January 31 incident in Dimapur. “These suspicions are being proved right ‘day by day’ as the activities and the strategies adopted by the JCC appear to be having direct nexus between the agitating group and the those self-vested politicians who are all out to topple the present ministry,” the NPF added.
