: Even though, there are no more BJP or NCP legislators in the NPF led Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) following their merger with the NPF, the government will continue with the tag DAN.
NPF president and urban development minister, Dr. Shurhozielie Liezietsu said this while talking to Nagaland Post on the sidelines of his recently concluded two days tour to Kiphire and Meluri.
He also revealed that following the decision to change the nomenclature of the Nagaland Peoples’ Front to Naga Peoples’ Front, the party had decided to simultaneously launch the party in the Naga inhabited areas of the neighbouring states of Manipur, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
“Nagas from Manipur state are ready anytime to start the formation of NPF party but the NPF central office want it to start simultaneously in all the other states for which committees were set up to consult and convince the Naga political leaders of the different states”, he said.
“NPF perhaps is the only political party which is allotted with the symbol of Cock- a living being which is banned by the Election Commission of India. The same was achieved following a legal battle in the court and that many people even from other parts of the country likes it”, the NPF president claimed.
Dr. Shurhozielie, known for his vast experience in his more than four decades of political career and considered as a good listener also patiently heard the grievances and suggestions from the party workers throughout his tour to Kiphire and Meluri where he held series of meetings with the party workers.
The NPF party workers stressed on the need for proper maintenance of road. In a meeting at Meluri, a party activist pointed out that the 20th Meluri AC was one of the biggest constituencies and that it required to be properly connected. The tour in the guise of attending the 52nd annual conference of the United Sangtam Students’ Union Conference, practically appeared to be an NPF campaign aimed at strengthening the party particularly in view of the assembly election due to be held in early 2013.
Several party activists including the secretary general K G Kenye and hosts of vice presidents, secretaries and others who accompanied the NPF president also shared their views during the course of various meetings.
