Hint of political turmoil in Nagaland

A huge protest in Kohima against PB Acharya gives no less hint of yet another phase of turmoil in Nagaland.

Hundreds of youths representing Naga People's Front is on a four days sit in before the Raj Bhawan demanding immediate dismissal of Governor alleging his conspiracy to unseat Shürhozelie Liezietsu.

Talking to Assam Times, a NPF youth said,” we will keep waiting for the next 48 hours. If the things refuse to move we would go to any extent in protest against the appointment of TR Zeliang as chief minister which is illegal.”

“If the Governor has the right to choice the chief minister why we need to talk of the mandate? We wont remain calm till Acharya is withdrawn,” said another protestor.

They said Achraya has no right to continue as Governor after he resorted to unconstitutional means to make Zelaing as Chief Minister dismissing the senior NPF leader.

“Either quit or let us force him to quit is our simple message to the Governor. We are here till August 14,”said the NPF leaders.
