Kohima, Jul 06 (UNI) Naga People’s Front (NPF) president and former chief minister Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu has said that Governor RN Ravi’s letter to Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio should not come as a surprise to both the people of Nagaland and Rio as he had sought action to contain law and order situation as earlier on August 23 last year and said that extortion has nothing to do with the Naga political problem and it is “purely a law and order subject.”
In a release issued last night Dr. Liezietsu said the Governor again reminded the state Government on November 14 last year, but nothing was done. Therefore, the Governor had regretted to note that his urging and advices had gone unheeded. On the whole, Liezietsu opined that the Governor wrote the letter on the suffering of the people and not for his own gain or interest.
