Dimapur, March 31: The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) has welcomed the NPF’s decision to support INC candidate K L Chishi in the Lok Sabha election, saying it has not only strengthened the secular force but has also strengthened the demand for removal of CAB and the foremost important issue to carry forward the peace talks for a final solution.
“The decision is magnanimous and is above political boundaries. NPF’s sacrifice in the interest of secular forces will go a long way,” said NPCC president K Therie in a statement.
Stating that the battle is between the ideological forces of communal Hindutva vs Secularism and the freedoms it offers and the fabric of unity in diversity, Therie said, “We are standing together to protect our faith and identity and to carry forward political negotiations for solution at the earliest.”
The NPCC also appealed to NPF and like-minded political parties and thinkers to work together in the 26-Aolengden assembly constituency bye election. “If elected, we will support the secular NPF force. If INC MLA is elected, he will be the salt in the State Assembly curry,” he said.
The NPCC added that given opportunity to rule at the centre, INC is committed to support the formation of a secular like-minded government in the state. (Page News Service)
