NPF president Dr Shurhozelie Liezietsu has predicted that NDPP, despite going strong now, would soon fall and disappear. 

He said this during the inauguration of NPF Dimapur division’s new office building at Landmark Colony here on Thursday. 

Referring to how regional parties floated in the past could not sustain due to greed of their leaders, Shurhozelie predicted a similar fate for NDPP. He asserted that NPF would, however, survive as it was committed to serve the people and was not trying to concentrate power in the hands of a few of its leaders.

He expressed appreciation for the team spirit displayed by party workers in completing the construction of new building in time.

The NPF president remarked that though life as an opposition legislator was not new for him, he admitted that it was not pleasant either. 

However, he stressed that it was also time when party members could display their integrity and show respect for the party and people. He asked them to learn how to survive under different weather conditions. 

“NPF belongs to you as much as it belongs to me,” he exclaimed. 

Recalling that NPF was formed at a time when the State was going through turmoil, Liezietsu assured that the party was striving to bring peace to the land, adding peace could be only achieved through a political settlement. 

He said though the PDA government was going strong currently, he was proud to see party workers and leaders remaining calm and unmoved. 

In his speech, NPF secretary general and Rajya Sabha member KG Kenye remarked that it was a “red letter day” for the party. 

Pointing out that NPF was the second oldest regional party in the country after DMK, he asserted that the party would not stop serving people of the State, even if it was in the opposition. 

Kenye remarked that NPF leaders and workers alike were enjoying the fruits of labour of the elders and further encouraged the gathering not to destroy but to preserve and pass the torch burning bright to the future generation. 

“We might not have achieved our aspirations, but that does not mean we should give up,” he exhorted.

Kenye tried to motivate the gathering by stating that in their journey as workers of a political party, they would face both ups and downs. But that did not mean that they should be disheartened, he emphasised. He said they should be ready and prepared to take active role as opposition party members and not tempted to leave the party while in the opposition. 

However, Kenye remarked that if being in power was their only objective, then NPF was not the right party for them, as being in power was not the priority of his party. He claimed that solution to Indo-Naga problem was his party’s priority and that it was formed due to this reason. He encouraged party members to continue holding their heads high and lead Naga people under any circumstances. 

Referring to the new building, Kenya commented on a lighter note that had it been a government project, its cost would have been around Rs 1.5/2 crore. 

A report on building construction was presented by W/P Dimapur division and construction committee convener R Wati. He said the building was constructed at a cost of Rs 32,45,741, adding that the foundation of the building was laid in such a manner that it could be made into a four or five-storied structure. 

Delivering a brief speech on the occasion, NPF legislator Kuzholuzo Nienu remarked that inauguration of new party office building was a testimony to hard work, loyalty, dedication and determination of its workers in the worst of times. He encouraged party members to work hard and rededicate themselves to serve Naga people in the best way possible. 

Earlier, unveiling of the stone was done by Liezietsu and dedicatory prayer offered by senior associate pastor, LBCD, Yanbemo Ovung.

Short speech was also delivered by NPF vice-president and Dimapur division in-charge Pusazo Luruo, while welcome address was delivered by NPF Dimapur division president Er Rhonthungo M Ovung. 

The programme was chaired by party’s general secretary and Dimapur division assistant in-charge T Lotha. A special number was also presented by Rotoki, while vote of thanks delivered by NPF youth wing Dimapur division president Temsu Yanger.
