DIMAPUR, APR 3 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/3/2019 12:03:15 PM IST

Making a clarion call to the Naga people to vote for their future, the NPF president, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu, Wednesday asserted that the party has joined hands with the Congress to defend future generations, saying “we should not regret for voting against the wishes of our future generation.”

According to NPF press bureau, Dr. Shürhozelie, while speaking at the consultative meeting of NPF Kohima division at Central office Wednesday, said that to prevent dividing secular votes and giving advantages to NDPP candidate, NPF decided not to field its candidature in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.

Reiterating that NPF extending support to Congress was a “one-time affair”, Dr. Shürhozelie said together with secular forces they would defeat the NDPP- led BJP consensus candidate.

“NPF has taken this bold stand strongly and fight against the forces which is trying to penetrate into our land and destroy our people,” he added.

Clarifying on NPF’s 15 years alliance with BJP, he said that when BJP was with the NPF, BJP never dictated to  the NPF. However, Dr. Shürhozelie said that the BJP after coming to power at the Centre slowly began to “intrude into our people’s freedom” and when they could not bargain with NPF party, the BJP settled down with NDPP.

Referring to the seven rebel NPF MLAs, the party president cautioned that they cannot escape from the law. 

He maintained that unless they returned to the party within the stipulated time, disciplinary action against them would be initiated, which would cost them greatly including their career.

Also, speaking on the occasion, Keneizhakho Nakhro, MLA, maintained that NPF joining with Congress could be a blessing in disguise to let the secular forces come together and fight for the future of the Naga people. He said the priority of the Naga people should be voting for the secular parties and defend the future of the Naga people.

Cautioning that at present many “fake leaders” were leading the Naga people, the MLA said it was high time the Naga people realise before it was too late. He also called for striving together and staying united with the “true leaders.”

Ex-MLA Kropol Vitsu slammed the purported statement of the chief minister Neiphiu Rio that BJP was more secular than the Congress. 

“How far the chief minister can fool the Naga people?” he queried and said having more alliance with other political parties can never be termed as a secular party.

Stating that voting for PDA candidate was like voting in favour of CAB, the Ex MLA said “if we vote in favour of the CAB, a day will come when our generation will curse us.”

Earlier, the programme was chaired by NPF central vice president, Kruzakie Kelio, welcome address was delivered by NPF Kohima division president, Gonei-u Sirie while Neivizolie Chilie gave invocation and vote of thanks was proposed by NPF Kohima division working president, Kelhouletuo Keretsü.
