Dimapur: Rajya Sabha MP of Nagaland, KG Kenye got suspended by NPF from its primary as well as active membership because of issuing support to CAA. An order released on Wednesday stated that Kenye’s “vote in favour of CAB” can be the desired reason behind the MP’s suspension from NPF. It also said that the MP was given sufficient time to explain the reason for supporting the controversial Bill-turned Act.
The suspension order of the Naga People’s Front stated “You were also given a special time slot to present your point of view,”
A consultative meeting, by the Disciplinary Action Committee (DAC), was convened at the NPF Central Office in Kohima. It included the Central Office Bearers (COB) of the NPF, NPF Legislature Wing, frontal and cell heads, divisional presidents and special invitees.
The house decided to stick to the Central Executive Council’s (CEC) resolution to continue opposing CAA.
The suspension order, which was made available to media persons, stated, “The house was also not convinced with the explanation rendered by you and arrived at a consensus that you acted contrary to the said resolution. Hence, the matter was referred back to the DAC and the DAC, after proper application of mind, recommended suspension of your membership from the party.”
KG Kenye was vehemently criticised the NPF for not voicing against the CAB in the Rajya Sabha. “
The suspension order stated that KG Kenye’s has wilfully refused to be subjected to NPF’s discipline. “Now, therefore, in pursuance of the recommendation of the DAC and in exercise of the power conferred on me as the president of the NPF by Clause 9 of Article-V read with Article XIV of the Constitution of the NPF, you are hereby suspended from both primary and active membership of the NPF till further order,” it said.
