Don’t make Hindi compulsory: NPF

Kohima, June 12: The NPF has asked the Central Government not to make Hindi a compulsory subject.
In its CEC meeting today, the NF took strong exception to the Centre’s attempt to make Hindi a compulsory subject, and urged the Centre to make Hindi an optional subject and not compulsory.
Adopting a six point resolution, the NPF CEC resolved to continue to uphold the principles on non-violence and to strive for resolution through peaceful means.
NPF would continue to uphold the unique political history of the Nagas which, of late, the Government of India has also given recognition which is considered to be a positive step towards solving the long standing Indo-Naga political problem, it resolved. It also urged all parties concerned to come to term for an honorable inclusive political settlement without further delay.
Nevertheless, the NPF strongly felt that any political solution without recognizing the symbolic identity of the Nagas will fall short of Naga aspiration. It also reaffirmed to continue to uphold its stand for integration of all Naga ancestral areas under one administrative roof.
The meeting also congratulated Tokheho Yepthomi for his victory while also applauded Narendra Modi for his second inning as Prime Minister of India.
The party, while expressing its appreciation to the electorates of Outer Manipur Parliamentary Constituency for electing NPF candidate, Dr Lorho S. Pfoze, put on record its gratitude to the party’s rank and file for their persistent efforts put in to enable the party to win, and also congratulated Dr. Lorho S. Pfoze for his record win which is also the first time win of an MP seat for NPF Manipur.
NPF also expressed appreciation to the citizens of Nagaland for extending support to KL Chishi. (Page News Service)
