Speaking as guest speaker at the NPF Central Women Wing co-ordination meeting at Central office, Kohima, Zeliang said NPF party do not only walk the talk when it comes to Naga political issue but had also manifested it and pointed out that when NPF was in power it had called for all political party (11 political parties) including civil societies and adopted resolution not to distribute party tickets or file nomination for the 2018 State general election as part of “solution before election”. However, the BJP had walked out the same day, he said.
Zeliang also stressed on the importance of women’s role in the society. Stating it was only the NPF party that truly considered women has a vital role for a better society and hence in 2017, the NPF Government had initiated and announced 33% reservation to the local urban bodies but due to hue and cry from the public, it could not be materialized.
