Kuzholuzo Nienu, MLA and NPF youth wing in-charge said self-reliance was the need of the hour to counter the scarcity of food which peaked during the lockdown when all the food and vegetable markets went empty.
He was speaking as the guest during NPF central youth wing meeting cum pre-Christmas celebrations held at NPF headquarters here, Tuesday. Citing examples of how the lockdown and pandemic had affected everyone, Azo said, the one thing he learnt from the situation was the importance of self-dependence and sufficiency. “Witnessing shortage of fish, meat and other essentials during the pandemic led me to realise the need to be self-reliant. I have started rearing chicken, pigs and fish. This way we all can truly understand and value self-reliance,” he said.
Drawing comparisons on how a person learns from trying times, Azo said he had gained more experience from three years of being in the opposition than 15 years of ruling.
He called on his party men to learn how to be in the opposition and at the same time be patient as God would reward accordingly as promised in the Bible.
Taking a swipe at the ruling, Azo instructed his party men not to be envious of those in power. He said most of them in the ruling parties were also suffering and that only a handful were actually enjoying the benefits of being in power.
He encouraged them to endure and be hopeful for better times and not be like those power mongers who keep switching sides. He also wished the gathering a merry Christmas and prosperous year ahead.
Earlier, programme was chaired by NPF working president S Medom, while president N Vihoshe Swu delivered the welcome address.
NPF minority wing president Bishnu Battacharjee and Dimapur division president T Lotha gave short speeches. Central women wing president Yanhola Yimchunger gave compliments, a special presentation was made by Arola Jinger and the summing up of the programme was done by vice-president Supoyi Vezhu.
