NPF open to any alliance

Four days after 21 NPF legislators joined NDPP and three days after being elected as the NPF legislature party leader Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu, MLA, took charge at a felicitation programme held at the party’s Central Office Kohima on Tuesday.
In his speech Azo announced that NPF was not averse to alliance with any political parties or leaders, as the party’s goal was to “carry forward the aspiration and voice of the Naga people.”He also called upon the party workers to “seek and take God first and carry forward the party” and also to “humble ourselves”, stand united and work hard for a purpose.
With the exodus of the 21 MLAs casting its spectre over the oldest regional political party in India, Azo maintained that their intention to shift loyalty was not a new programme and not unexpected but only the timing of the move.
The newly appointed NPF Legislature Party Leader said he was optimistic that even with four MLAs, party leaders and workers, the party will experience new changes to reach greater heights.
He also called for fresh ideas to uplift NPF and assured that under his leadership, he would render his best services to the people and party.
NPF’s new chief whip, Dr. Nganshi K. Ao, MLA, sought to encourage the party by saying that the recent development was instead a ‘blessing in disguise’ for the party. Dr. Ngangshi, a two-time legislator said the NPF was now a “clean house” and would start afresh for a better politics and justice for the people of Nagaland.
He also cautioned the party that it should henceforth, be careful while allotting the party tickets for the election. He encouraged party workers not to be discouraged as it was not the end because NPF was the right platform for the Nagas.
NPF secretary general, Achumbemo Kikon, who chaired the programme, sought fullest support from party workers and stressed on the need to focus more on positive sides and work for the upliftment of the party.
Those who also spoke included NPF working president, Apong Pongener, who underscored the importance of unity in the party and extending full support to the leadership of the party.
Meanwhile, NPF sources told Nagaland Post that as NPF has presence across Nagaland, the process of revamp has begun since some of those 21 MLAs were trying to wean away the NPF party workers from various constituencies.
