Konyak Baptist Bumeinok Bangjum (KBBB) and Ao Baptist Arogo Mungdang (ABAM) held a Clean Election Movement (CEM) exchange programme on June 17 at Impur, Mission Centre, ABAM.
In a press release, ABAM informed that during the introduction, ABAM executive secretary, Rev. Dr. Mar Pongener said “the dishonesty of our electioneering system” could only be obliterated by the practice of truth from the general public.
In this regard, he said the movement was a direction towards a public movement and that they all should work without any attrition.
In the keynote address, KBBA executive secretary, Rev. M. Chemyuh Konyak said that election in Nagaland had been “deteriorating Nagas in all corners.”
Stating that the livelihood was “under threat due to the lack of good governance”, Rev. Konyak stressed on the need for Nagas to elect God-fearing, visionary leaders with a character, who loves nothing but to do justice.
He further said the only way to elect good leaders was to say no to money, power and employment promises.
Meanwhile, KBBC CEM convenor, C. Nyamto and ABAM CEM convenor Rev. Dr. Noklen Lkr said that both the associations were determined on working for a fair and clean election at any cost.
“We will challenge the present political scenario by making this movement a public movement”, they added.
KBBB and ABAM pledged that adherence to NBCC calls on clean election would be strictly maintained and expressed determination to work towards doing away with all the malpractices by sensitising member of the churches.
The associations also pledged to disseminate the message of clean election in all corners of Nagaland.
The programme was attended by representatives of ABAM CEM, staff, KBBA CEM and Konyak civil bodies.
