Dimapur, May 27: The Naga People’s Front (NPF), while expressing shock at the complaint lodged by BJP & NDPP against NPF President, Dr Shurhozelie for giving inflammatory speech at an election rally at Kohima, today informed that Dr Shurhozelie has obtained anticipatory bail from the court.
The BJP/NDPP lodged an FIR against Dr. Shürhozelie, for propagating and defending Article 25 of the Constitution of India that advocate for secularism and freedom of religion to all citizens of India ,and ordered for his arrest, the NPF said.
“Though the President was taken aback at his arrest order, yet he was prepared to get arrested for a good cause being the ever sacrificial leader that he is. It was the timely intervention on the part of his secular party loyalists that insisted and obtained an anticipatory bail from the court before the cops arrived at his home to arrest him,” a press release issued by NPF Press Bureau stated.
The NPF said such high handedness and autocratic behavior on the part of NDPP/BJP leaders ,hurling wild accusations against one of the most veteran and tallest political leader in the state , for propagating the truth and defending the Constitutional values embedded in the Constitution of India such as that of the freedom of religion is highly questionable.
It also termed the act of NDPP/BJP as an act of extreme cowardice, a defiant cry that all is not well in their camp which they love to call it the ruling government. (Page News Service)
