A report from Dimapur said that Naga People's Front president Shürhozelie Liezietsu had termed the general convention of the party, called by Neiphiu Rio next month, as "illegal and unauthorised". Suspended NPF member Rio had not been delegated the power by party president Shürhozelie to convene the general convention. It had come to the notice of the party's central headquarters that an "unauthorised person", Thangsat Kuki, former office secretary of the NPF and at present with the Rio group, had been circulating an "illegal circular" on social media, calling for a meeting of the central executive council (CEC) on August 22. Article IV (3) (c) (iii) of the Constitution of the NPF stated that any member of the party may requisition a meeting of the CEC by presenting to the president a memorandum signed by one-third or more of the executive council and such a meeting be convened within 15 days from the date of receipt, said a party communiqué. The NPF communique said that the person circulating the circular was no longer a member of the NPF. Shürhozelie was neither in receipt of any requisition letter signed or attested by the required one-third members of the CEC, nor was he authorised to hold such a meeting. It said that the circular should be treated as illegal and mischievous that was creating confusion among the CEC members.
