NPCC receives jolt as Congress stalwart resigns
Kohima: Ahead of the February 23 Assembly polls, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) received a major jolt after Congress stalwart and former state party president, Chingwang Konyak, resigned from the party and decided to campaign for the ruling Naga People`s Front (NPF).
The veteran Congress leader, officially resigned from the party on January 30, citing frustrations and disappointment due to the lack of unity and cohesion in the NPCC.
However, NPCC president SI Jamir told a news agency that they were yet to receive any resignation letter from Konyak.
Konyak had served the party as its state president, vice president, Congress legislative party leader and was also a Member of Parliament from Nagaland in the 1970s.
Resigning from the Congress after 44 years of association, he, however, remained tight-lipped about joining any other political party.
Thanking the people of the state for their continuous support during all this time, he said, "I have decided to resign from the membership of the Indian National Congress Party which, I nurtured since its inception in the state."
"I have come to this difficult decision as I am frustrated and disappointed by the lack of unity and cohesion in the Nagaland Congress Party which is a divided House, he added.
