Kohima, April 02, 2019:
The National Peoples’ Party (NPP) has challenged the order of the Speaker of Nagaland Legislative Assembly before the Supreme Court through a Special Leave Petition which was registered on April 2.
According to the NPP, the order issued by the Speaker on March 20 is in gross violation of paragraph 4 of Xth Schedule of the Constitution whereby two Legislators elected as Members of NPP have been allowed to be merged with ruling party that is Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP).
“The order of the Speaker is in gross violation of principle of natural justice as no notice was issued to the NPP before passing the order on merger of two legislators with NDPP,” read a press statement.
