Defectors defaced the spirit of Christianity: NPCC president

DIMAPUR, APR 18 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/18/2019 12:13:11 PM IST

In an oblique reference to withdrawal of nomination by two candidates for the recently held by-election to Aonglenden A/C and the recent merger of two NPP legislators with the NDPP, Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) lamented that the politics of corruption and defection has “defaced” the spirit of “Nagaland for Christ”.

In a statement, NPCC president K Therie alleged that the current council of ministers did not feel guilty or ashamed in robbing every department’s development project funds. “We have a leader who believes in engineering defections by offering huge gratification to stick to the chair at all costs, including Christ. He is responsible for the sins and defacing Nagaland for Christ,” he Therie. He opined that people cannot believe that MLAs and candidates have defected without accepting money and risk disqualification and loss of future. He referred to social media where it was being alleged that the MLAs were paid Rs 5 crore each with promise of portfolios. 
Stating that defectors were worst as they sell their faithful followers along with their mandate, Therie called them as “mass human traffickers” for the buyer as they have certain voters behind them. He said those who sold themselves have not only finished their personal future, but also sold their soul, spirit and faith. Therie also said the defectors were bereft of moral, principles, ideas and vision in life without any plan for their people as they cannot see the future.
He warned that anyone cooperating and supporting defectors will suffer the same fate before God. 
Referring to speculations that the defectors will not be disqualified by the speaker, Therie wondered whether it meant that 10th Schedule and rules have become invalid. 
He reminded that that the President, governor and speaker were all bound by law and in particular, the house speaker cannot have the final say on the matter.
Therie reminded about Good Friday where Jesus died for the sinners and urged Nagaland Christians not to follow the Achan way of life and fate. He said Jesus forgave the woman after she confessed and repented after which Christ asked her not to repeat. He said let Achan be stoned to death but not his livestock together with him.
