Calling for clean elections in the land of the Phoms, Phom Baptist Church Association (PBCA) organized a clean election campaign mass rally for citizens of Longleng district at local ground, Longleng on April 5.

According to a DIPR report, speaking about clean elections, convenor Clean Election Campaign (CEC), Rev. Beau, asserted that the clean election campaign is a movement initiated by the NBCC to bring about a complete change in the election system in the state of Nagaland. He pointed out that the campaign is not intended at targeting any political parties or candidates negatively but to transform the election system for peace and prosperity of the State. It is hoped, he said, that clean election will ensure that right leaders are elected to lead Nagas in the right direction. He asserted that the PBCA and Churches have no hidden agendas of supporting or opposing any political party or candidate.
Rev. Beau appealed to the gathering to come forward to actively participate in the Clean Election Campaign for a bright and prosperous Nagaland. He also maintained that according to the Holy Scriptures, only true love, peace unity and forgiveness can change the State. 
Calling the Clean Election Campaign God’s mission, he laid emphasis on the evils of voting for money and jobs. Elections, he said, is not something that should be decided by money power but should be aimed at ushering in good governance with better roads, health care, education and all-round development of the community. He urged the people to stand for truth and fear no one except God and cast their vote for a true leader to lead the people for complete transformation of Naga society. 
A ‘Reflection on commitment and looking beyond tomorrow’ was delivered by executive secretary PBCA, N. Tialemba Phom while keynote address was delivered by president PBCA, Nganlang. 
The program was chaired by co-convenor CEC, Phakmei, invocation was pronounced by evangelist PBCA, Rev. Longnyei. The program culminated with a mass prayer for peace and tranquillity.
