Correspondent KOHIMA, APR 8 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/8/2019 12:33:15 PM IST

Stating that the time has dawned for the Nagas to save itself from the clutches of evil forces of divisive ideologies, Yitachu, MLA asked the Nagas to vote individually to save themselves.

Speaking at a joint public rally organized by 9th Kohima Town A/C Congress unit and the Naga People’s Front (NPF) at PWD Junction, Kohima on Monday evening, Yitachu maintained that the coming together of a regional party from the state and a national party was purely because of issue based concerns for the Naga and tribal people.

He stated that the NPF and INC had come together because they had entered into a consensus agreement to fight against the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) 2016, protect the Indian Constitution of secularism and to seriously approach the Naga Political issue.

Accusing the PDA government of trying to bluff the people by saying Article 371 (A) fully protects Nagaland against the CAB, Yitachu, said the much talked about special provisions for the state in the Article was a “decorative piece” as it does not protect Nagas against the CAB as calimed.

According to Yitachu, the NPF-INC combine want to save Nagas from the threat of divisive ideologies threatening the identity and survival of tribal people as a whole, and also trying to harm the Naga political issue.

Congress Campaign Committee Kohima, convenor Khriedi Theunüo, in his address reiterated why the Congress and NPF had decided to support a consensus candidate. He then appealed to the people to wisely ponder on which candidate can stand for the interests of the Naga people.

Former minister, Seyiekuolie has also urged party workers to work hard so that they can send their candidate to represent the State in Delhi. 

NPF Central secretary, Sevotso Seyie said the parties had come together to bring all around development and well being to society. Stating that the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections were more important than ever, Sevotso said the Nagas needed a strong and capable leader to represent their voices in the Parliament when they are being confronted with the dangerous CAB and Uniform Code today.

Dr. Tseilhoutuo Rhutso, CEC member NPF, and ex candidate Kohima AC, said the upcoming election was a different kind of election and urged voters to not make a mistake because it will greatly affect their future. He therefore, asked voters to vote to protect themselves and also for the betterment of future generations.
