Kohima, March 31, 2019:
Congress President of Nagaland K Therie has lauded the Naga People’s Front party’s decision to support Congress candidate K L Chishi. He said that it has not only strengthened the secular force but has also strengthened the demand for removal of CAB and the foremost important issue to carry forward the peace talks for a final solution. “The decision is magnanimous and is above political boundaries. NPF’s sacrifice in the interest of secular forces will go a long way”, he added.
“The battle is between the ideological forces of communal Hindutva vs Secularism and the freedoms it offers and the fabric of Unity in diversity”, Therie said.
“We are standing together to protect our faith and identity and to carry forward political negotiations for a solution at the earliest”, he added.
“I also appeal to NPF and like-minded political parties and thinkers, to work together in the 26-Aolengden Assembly Constituency bye election. If elected, we will support the secular NPF force. If INC MLA is elected, he will be the salt in the State Assembly curry”, the Nagaland Congress President added.’It is to be mentioned that the NPF had pledged support to the Congress candidate on Saturday.
