A day after chief minister Neiphiu Rio ridiculed the NPF for supporting Congress candidate KL Chishi for the coming Lok Sabha Elections terming it a “mockery”, Nagaland Congress president, K. Therie has issued a press statement pledging support to the NPF if elected in the 26-Aonglenden A/C by-election.

Therie, in a press statement issued by his press secretary Keso Chakhesang, promised that “If elected, we will support the secular NPF force”. He also added that if an INC MLA is elected, that representative will be the “salt in the State Assembly curry”.
Defending the NPF decision to support the Congress candidate, Therie stated that the decision has strengthened secular forces and their demand for removal of the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB). He further stated that it also strengthens the “foremost important issue to carry forward the peace talks for a final solution.” Terming the NPF support a sacrifice in the interest of secular forces, he added that it was magnanimous and above political boundaries.
The battle, Therie stated, was between the ideological forces of communal Hindutva versus Secularism and the freedoms it offers and the fabric of Unity in diversity.
According to the Nagaland Congress president, NPF and Congress were standing together to protect the Naga faith and identity and to carry the political negotiations forward for a solution at the earliest. He appealed to the NPF and like-minded political parties and thinkers, to work together in 26-Aolengden Assembly Constituency by-election. 
In conclusion, Therie said that if given an opportunity to rule at the centre, the INC is committed to support the formation of a secular like-minded government in Nagaland.
