Pfutsero | July 14th
The 16th Assembly Constituency of Pfutsero Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) today held its general assembly of all its unit voters, area and central office officials at TT Stadium, Pfutsero in the district from Phek.
Addressing the meeting, Nagaland’s Minister for Planning and Coordination, Land Revenue and Parliamentary Affairs, Neiba Kronu, said that the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) government under the Chief Ministry of Neiphiu Rio was working seriously for the Naga political issue because all Naga want a solution.
He said the government had asked peace talks negotiators to find a quick solution.
The 60 members and two deputies of the Parliamentary Committee on the Naga Political Question will meet again on July 16 at the State Banquet Hall, Kohima.
During the meeting, the central committee will brief the members on the initiatives taken so far, Kronu said.
The parliamentary committee is serious about a quick solution as the Nagas want, he said.
Stating that the dialogue has already lasted 25 years and that it has been too long, he said that the current government, through the parliamentary committee on the Naga political issue, was pressuring the negotiators for a quick solution.
“We will obtain an absolute majority in the next elections”
Addressing the upcoming state assembly elections, Kronu said that even in the next term Rio will continue to be the chief minister of the state due to which the NPF lawmakers merged with the NDPP.
“We (the NDPP) will get an absolute majority in the next elections,” he said.
“In a democratic setup, the chief minister is the highest leader and therefore Rio being from the NDPP, we should be proud and continue to strengthen it,” Kronu said.
Trust the leadership of Neiphiu Rio. We will form the government again, said Kronu, a third provincial deputy from the 16th Pfutsero A/C.
He said that as the National Assembly elections approach, different political parties will issue their respective manifestos and assurances.
In this, he called on party workers to be practical and to remain loyal to the NDPP party.
Kronu said he had done his best to bring overall development within the Pfutsero Assembly constituency in particular and Phek district in general, although he was the only minister in the district.
In the meantime, he launched a fervent appeal to the inhabitants of the constituency to help him pass the next elections to the National Assembly.
