Congress candidate for 26th Aonglenden A/C by-election Dr. S.C Jamir Friday filed his nomination papers before the Returning Officer, Lithrongla G. Chishi at Mokokchung Deputy Commissioner’s conference hall.
The Returning Officer administered oath to Dr. Jamir as a candidate for by-election to the Nagaland Legislative Assembly.
Accompanied by a host of Congress MLAs led by CLP Leader Tokheho Yepthomi, K. Therie and Chingwang Konyak besides supporters and well wishers, Dr. Jamir walked to and fro from his residence to the RO’s office.
Later, addressing a press conference, Dr. Jamir viewed that Nagaland was going through a very critical and crucial period saying “If you can see the political front, we are leading nowhere.”
He pointed out that the entire people of Nagaland was longing for a logical conclusion to the Naga political problem. He said things should not have dragged on for long but added it was because “of our own foolishness.”
Further, Dr. Jamir said people should have a firm commitment that the political future of Nagas has to be decided by themselves.
He expressed believe that all political groups were pursuing for the same objective, i.e Naga political issue, but added that the paradox of it was the launching of different platforms towards achieving the objective instead of a common platform. According to Dr. Jamir, this perhaps was the reason for the varied problems the Nagas were encountering.
Stating that the UPA government, unlike the past, was honestly and sincerely trying to find an amicable political solution, he expressed believe that the central government would be responsive to any solution put up to it with the full mandate of the Naga people.
Pointing out that the Naga underground groups were trying their best in their respective ways to find a solution, he however, said there was no favourable prospect as long as they try to resolve the Naga problem without the full involvement of all sections of Naga community. After seeing the political scenario, Dr. Jamir said, with the blessing of the people of the state, he could also humbly contribute towards bringing together the Nagas to a common platform as per the theme of the FNR – A journey of Common Hope.
Stating that all the 60 elected NLA members enjoyed the legitimate mandate of the people, Dr. Jamir said if all MLAs realise the dimension of the Naga issue and work as a united, cohesive and committed body, it would sink the political differences. He said it could be the role model for unity of the Nagas. Towards this objective, Dr. Jamir expressed desire to involve personally so that he could be a humble instrument to help forge such unity and adding, “that is my mission.”
To a question, he replied that political and economic sovereignty was inseparable and that Nagas could develop its economy and make the state self reliant.
“I think people will be sovereign in their own ways,” he quipped. He said that the Congress party was very broad and its policy embraced the entire country.
Dr. Jamir all the required forces would be roped in so as to hasten the political problem to a logical conclusion.
