Give your mandate to Tokheho: Rio


Tamlu, May 22: Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio today appealed to the voters in Tamlu to give their valuable mandate to the PDA candidate so that he will represent them at the Centre.
Addressing a rally at the Market Complex, Tamlu town, Rio said the sentiment of Nagas have been hurt very much because of some selfish leaders who have destroyed the society. He urged the people not to be deceived by the NPF’s propaganda but to know the truth about the history of the party.
State BJP president, Visasolie Lhoungu in his address said that PDA has set a strong stable Government in Nagaland under the able leadership of Neiphiu Rio, the tallest Naga leader. Therefore, the need of the hour is to send a strong, vibrant and seasoned leader to represent the Nagas in the Parliament of India so that together they can work for the welfare and political cause of the Nagas, he said.
He also rubbished the NPF talk of BJP being a religion centric party saying, “…nobody can take away your religion from you”. He appealed the voters to vote for the PDA consensus candidate, Tokheho.
On TR Zeliang’s statement that the ‘PDA days are numbered’, Tokheho Yepthomi touched upon the instability of the previous Government and stated that when TR Zeliang was the Chief Minister, MLAs were made to sleep on the floor of the chief minister’s house, which is uncommon and unethical.
In regard to his candidature for the upcoming bye-election, Tokheho assured that if elected he will work to do his best and do what is necessary in the interest of the Nagas and in line with the party’s policies and directives particularly with regard to the Naga political issue.
