Polls will take place with or without solution, says Azo

NPF legislature party leader and UDA co-chairman Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu said general election to the 14th Nagaland Legislative Assembly will take place with or without solution to the Naga political issue.
According to NPF press bureau, Azo said this while speaking at the consultative meeting of 17 Chizami assembly constituency NPF office bearers at Pfutsero tourist lodge.
Azo said assembly election will have to be held in Nagaland sooner or later. He said polls can be delayed if solution came earlier but it will go ahead if there was no solution before election.
Azo said Nagas cannot go on waiting for solution to the vexed Naga political issue. He said NPF does not support any Naga political group, but maintained equality with all the groups.
Azo said NPF’s main resolution on Naga political issue was for an honourable, acceptable and inclusive solution.
Reiterating that regional NPF party took birth because of the Naga political issue, Azo said the party, therefore, does not belong to any individual or leader, but to the Naga people.
Azo said the NPF party, represented Naga identity and so it was deeply rooted in the Naga society unlike the BJP. He said BJP may have deep roots in India, but not in Nagaland. As for NDPP, he said it was only about 5-year-old.
On the defection of 21 party MLAs, he said the defected MLAs were not leaders but followers. Azo said “drastic changes” have taken place in the NPF after the defection of 21 MLAs as its party leaders and workers were now more faithful and stronger. Azo claimed that the position of defected 21 MLAs for the coming election were more secured when they were in the NPF. However, Azo said that after they abandoned the party, “many of them is very doubtful to return.”
He also dismissed rumours that with NPF was weakened following the defection of 21 NPF MLAs.
Azo claimed that in reality, the story was “totally in contrast” as the NPF grass root was intact.
He also maintained that NPF was not one to merge with any other political parties instead other parties could merge with NPF.
NPF leader exuded confidence that NPF would form the next government or would be the king maker in forming the next government.
Kezhienyi Khalo, MLA 17 Chizami A/C, who is also the Phek DPDB chairman, expressed confidence that Naga people’s love for NPF party was deep rooted. He expressed belief that the Naga grassroots love for the NPF will help the party form the next government.
Khalo also congratulated the new office bearers and expressed the hope that under their leadership, NPF will win Chizami seat in the coming election.
NPF secretary general, Achumbemo Kikon, said that NPF has stood for the Naga people in the past and the party will stand strong and work for the Naga people in the future also.
NPF central general secretary, Akho Leyri, NPF 17 Chizami A/C president, Veli Medeo and CEC Member, P Paul also spoke at the meeting.
