Solution devoid of sovereignty will be temporary: MLA Neinu
Earlier, addressing the second day session of the meet, NPF MLA Kuzholuzo Nienu said that the Naga forefathers did not shed blood for solution or settlement but it was purely for sovereignty. Therefore, even if a solution or settlement of the Naga issue is arrived at through the current dialogue, it will be a temporary settlement and final settlement will be sovereignty alone and nothing else, he said.
Nienu, who is also the legislator in-charge of the party youth wing, stressed on the need for unity of the Nagas. Asking Nagas to do self research on why there is no peace, he said that efforts must be given as humans while peace will come only when the people are united.
Maintaining that peace is eluding the Nagas because of disunity and self centered attitude, he said ‘ism’ must be done away with to make way for peace and rise above tribalism to work for greater interest of the Nagas.

Citing that there is a time for everything, he said the party has had its 15 years of good days in, running the government while the party also had its good share of being in opposition. He asserted that being in an opposition is a test of leadership, wherein many cannot bear it and he pointed out that only the strong one can be able to bear it and take it forward.
He told the party youth leaders to believe in themselves so that everything happens for a better while he asserts that it is God alone that shapes and designs for the future which added that it should be gracefully accepted.
Member of Parliament (Lok Sabha) from outer Manipur Parliamentary Constituency Dr Lorho S Pfoze and Nagaland MLA Dr Chumben Murry also exhorted the gathering while the presidential address was delivered by NPF Central Youth Wing president N Vihoshe Swu.
