Nagaland's Rajya Sabha Speaker, K G Kenye resigned Friday from the post of Naga People's Front (NPF) Secretary General.
His resignation came a day after the NPF's disciplinary action committee published a show-cause notice to vote for the Parliament's Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
Addressing media after his resignation, Kenye said that within his party it was a matter of reputation and image, and that he had tendered his resignation from the post.
He noted, however, that he had not withdrawn from the party.
The MP told the media that he made several attempts to meet with NPF president Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu to understand why he voted for the Act.
But he said he was not given a chance by the latter to meet him and explain the matter to him.
In a letter addressed to the NPF president, Kenye stated that in the face of being served the show-cause notice by the party’s disciplinary action committee, which he had received on the night of December 19, he had tendered his resignation from the post of secretary general.
“It is a very rare case that a high profile party office bearer should fall under the DAC scanner as my integrity has become questionable,” his resignation letter read.
“Therefore, I am taking this step so as to save the prestige and image of the party,” he stated in the letter.
“It has been an honour to serve under your leadership for many years. I wish you good luck and God’s blessing,” he added.
