Dimapur, December 27: Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio has stated that a solution to the decades old Naga political problem is within the grasp of Naga people if Nagas set aside all differences and unite.
“The tensions, conflicts and seemingly insoluble problems tend to make most people cynical and doubtful, but if we set aside our differences and allow Almighty God to take control of the situation, a solution to the decades old Naga political problem is indeed within our grasp because all things are possible with God,” he said in a Christmas message.
Rio gave a clarion call to all fellow citizens and Naga brethren that since formal negotiations between the negotiating parties and the Government of India has come to an end on a positive note, all the various Naga groups should come together and unite for the overall interest of the Naga family as the modalities and competencies are being worked out.
“The words “Fear Not” of the Angel continue to offer us hope for better times ahead,” he said while observing that Nagas are at a very crucial juncture in our history.
“And therefore, during this Christmas season, we can be assured that Jesus Christ is here. He is here to give us hope, to forgive our sins, and to give us a new song if only we will let Him. Let Christmas be a time of renewed hope – that God will bring order out of chaos.”
“Let us plead our way through these crucial times through Almighty God’s way and not our own individual human ways. Let the living God be the epicenter of all our activities so that divine wisdom and intervention from above will lead the way for the Nagas as we march ahead,” he appealed.
With this year’s curtains coming down, the CM also wished all that the New Year 2020 be purposeful and meaningful for all. (Page News Service)
