The Ao Senden through a press note issued a clarification, citing reasons as to why one of its member, minister Nuklutoshi was issued a ‘quit notice’ from Ao territory on January 9. Ao Senden acting president C. Angang Jamir and acting general secretary L. Tally Longkumer said Nuklutoshi was acting against the will of the Ao people by “arranging to gather the candidates to file the nomination of Changtongya Town Council from Tuli Town”.
However, the people of Tuli town intervened and prevented him from doing so, it said. Further, applying the same tactics, the Senden claimed that Nuklutoshi tried to pursue to get the nominations done from his home town, Chuchuyimlang town. This was also confirmed from the concerned authority to Ao Senden officials that the minister was in the process of doing as stated, the Senden added.
In the act, the Senden said the minister’s “convoy was caught red handed by the volunteers of the movement”.
On learning of his activities, the peoples’ anger was triggered and thereby decided to attack personally him, said the Senden.“Thus, the Ao Senden with clear sense decided to move him way for the day taken into account for his own safety as well as to salvage the situations at hand,” the Senden said.
