Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC), a central organisation of the Baptist Churches and associations in Nagaland, has requested the election commission of India to reschedule the date for 26-Aonglenden A/C by-election to the NLA, scheduled to be held May 8 next, as the day fell on Sunday. The NBCC, in a letter to chief election commissioner, reminded that Sunday was a day of Worship for Christians and Nagaland has a predominantly Christian population. “In view of this, state by-election being held on Sunday will not only disturb the worshippers but it is against the religious sentiment of Christians in Nagaland and the world over,” the NBCC stated. Therefore, the Council urged the ECI to defer the date for holding the by election on Sunday.
