NDPP Phek region against inclusion of non-NDPP/BJP parties in Govt.

Kohima, March 14: The Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) Phek Region today affirmed that it will not recommend inclusion of other political parties in the present NDPP-BJP Government, which is having a comfortable majority.
This was declared by NDPP Phek region president Neikhrolo Khalo during the felicitation programme of three newly elected members of Phek district – K G Kenye, Z Nyuisietho Nyuthe and Kudecho Khamo who have been assigned as Minister for Power and Parliamentary Affairs, Advisor for New & Renewable Energy and NSDMA, Advisor for CAWD & Taxes respectively.
Khalo asserted that NDPP will not accept any other party of the district to be included in the Government.
Of the five seats, NDPP won three and lost two including minister for planning & coordination, land revenue and parliamentary affairs Neiba Kronu from Pfutsero A/C.
While congratulating the three NDPP legislators of the district, Khalo hoped that they would work for the district in particular and the Nagas in general.
He also asked the Assembly Constituency unit of NDPP to submit their report of the respective constituency election process at the earliest.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister K G Kenye said the NDPP-BJP pre-poll alliance is comfortably placed in the government while the normal functioning will start after the oath taking in the Assembly on March 20.
“We will do our best in the government, and we will take together all the five constituencies,” he said.
Maintaining that the alliance government has a lot of challenges in this tenure, he said everything calls for unity and cooperation from all the party men and women while the support base has to be made stronger.
NDPP is relatively a new party in its seventh year of functioning, and therefore revamping the party at all levels is the need of the hour, he said.
Advisor Nyuisietho Nyuthe said having won the elections it is time to give their best for the welfare of the people. He affirmed to give priority for the welfare of the people and contribute to the society.
Advisor Kudecho Khamo said the victory belongs to all the five constituencies.
“We have the aspirations of the people to be fulfilled with the challenges of uplifting the socio-political condition as well as strengthen the rural economy and other developmental challenges, which can be achieved only with the support of all,” he said while urging all to cooperate with the elected members.
NDPP Central working president Nuzota Swuro said the present government has many crucial issues ahead of us but with a strong team at the state and district level the Party will be able to take up the matter.
Congratulating the winners, he also lauded the efforts of the two losing candidates and the party workers for giving a good fight.
NDPP vice president K. Puro cautioned the party worker to be more careful saying that in a democratic system the need of an opposition is paramount for a better delivery system and for the welfare of the people.
Former minister Neiba Kronu said despite personally losing the election, he is very happy that NDPP has won a majority of the seats in the district including senior politician K G Kenye.
He also affirmed to work harder for the constituency without being discouraged but with more determination to come back stronger.
He also asked the elected members and the party leaders to coordinate better and support the government in taking over challenging issues of ULB elections, job reservation, ENPO statehood demand, RIIN and delimitation etc.
This is a beginning for a stronger and resilient party, said Kronu.
NDPP Phek region vice president Kevese Lasuh chaired the programme while Associate Pastor of Chakhesang Baptist Church Kohima Rev. Vikuo Rhi pronounced invocation and NDPP Phek region women organization president Vekhrolu Khamo offered benediction.
