Zhaleo bats for action and encouragement


Dimapur, March 28: The newly elected Deputy Speaker of NLA, Zhaleo Rio, IAS (Retd.), who visited his party office at Medziphema on March 28, said that it is the time for positive action and constructive encouragement from all corners in order to bring about change in the state.
He was addressing party leaders where he also briefed them about the different stages in formation of government and how he finally landed on the chair of the Dy. Speaker in the PDA government.
While thanking all rank and file of the party workers and public alike for their commitment in his favour, Rio who is the MLA of 5 Ghaspani-II A/C, gratefully acknowledged all the MLAs who have been instrumental towards the installation of the PDA government in Nagaland this time.
Reiterating his stand in the government formation, a beaming Rio was all smiles when he stated “some candidates may be rescuers but I can also be considered a saviour who sacrificed for the welfare of the government, representing the people of 5 Ghaspani-II A/C.”
Speaking further, he pledged to give his utmost for the constituency as also the Nagas in general while requesting people of their prayers and support throughout the coming days.
Lamenting that many Nagas have become prisoners of negative criticism, he urged people to leave aside all differences to build “our Naganess” which can be possible through unity, constructive criticism and consideration of characteristic aspects that forge people together in the society.
Miathou Krose, Chairman, NHHDC, who also addressed the gathering, praised God as well as the Chief Minister, the Dy. Speaker and the PDA government for his new assignment in the state machinery. He expressed confidence that he will be able to deliver the goods with constant support and guidance from the public leaders, government officials and more so, the constituency MLA Zhaleo Rio, while sharing that he is commited to work for the uplift of the Naga people.
The program was chaired by Duosau Kuotsu, President, 5 Ghaspani-II A/C, which began with a mass prayer of thanksgiving.
