NPF only political party keeping Naga issue alive: Azo

NPF Legislature Party (NPFLP) leader and UDA co-chairman, Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu, Tuesday reiterated his claim that NPF was the only political party that was keeping alive the Naga political issue.
Speaking at the NPF Peren division re-organization programme at Peren town hall, the NPFLP leader said that the NPF was given birth in the Naga soil during the worst turmoil in 1960s. He said NPF was not a party that chased after power or position, but stood for the cause of the Naga people, adding that welfare of the Naga people was its priority.
He further reiterated that NPF does not belong to any individual or controlled by any individual or leader, but belonged to the Naga people. He pointed out that any Naga people was welcome to join the NPF.
Azo said the party with or without its representative in the State Assembly would exist and continue to work for the Naga people and its well-being. He claimed grassroots of the party was still intact even after 21 MLAs defecting to NDPP.
According to NPF press bureau, the party’s chief ministerial candidature also said that though the ruling government party was running strong, many of its (NDPP) office bearers were resigning and joining the NPF. He said the development was “an indication of lack of confidence on its leadership and the survival of the party.”
NPF leader expressed optimism that NPF would form the next government in Nagaland.
NPF secretary general Achumbemo Kikon also reiterated that NPF belonged to the entire Naga people and said that Naga people should take the privilege to be a part of the party.
Kikon, therefore, called upon the people to take the responsibility to push forward the NPF for the better future of the Naga people.
Speeches were also delivered by Thepfuselie Makritsu, NPF Peren division incharge, Akho Leyri, general secretary central and Kehung Hegui.
Earlier, the programme was chaired by Iteichu Zeliang, invocation prayer by Yangsai, Pastor UBC Peren and benediction prayer was offered by Itingau Paul, touring Catechist ST Paul Perish Peren.
