Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) co-ordination committee chairman, Kuzholuzo Azo Nienu on behalf of the DAN legislators has apologized to all sections of the people for the ongoing political disturbances and appealed to the general public to maintain peace, calm and pray for the same.
In a statement, Azo also assured that they will all do the best in their capacity to bring back things to normalcy at the earliest. 
“Let us remember that deep down in the heart of every Naga is the dream and desire for a better tomorrow,” he added. 
He said in the hope of reconciliation and to further strengthen the DAN alliance, the chief minister along with the legislators and its party functionaries on July 13, 2017 agreed to induct one more minister and two parliamentary secretaries from among the four BJP MLAs.
This, Azo said was a clear indication of strengthening the Alliance.
He said the other step towards reconciliation was by way of revoking all the ten suspended members including Lok Sabha MP, Neiphiu Rio. 
Since both groups were trying to embrace reconciliation in its true spirit, Azo appealed to both the camps/any coalition party such as NCP, JDU, BJP and NPF not to issue any provocative statement which could affect the progress of the reconciliation process.
Azo also urged upon all leaders to wake and rise up to the situation and find a common ground in the greater interest of the NPF party and DAN coalition partners in general. 
“The aim of any arguments or discussions should not be biased or aimed at one sided victory alone but should be aimed at progress, improvement, corrective and constructive amicable solutions,” he stated. 
While admitting that no one could evade the many conflicts and challenges that are from difference of opinions and clash of interest in any political crisis, Azo however said “it does not mean we cannot have a meeting point.”
He said “our primary focus should be to consolidate the party, keep the alliance intact, deliver goods and justice to the public and live up to the expectations of our electorates,” and called upon the leaders to live up to their mandate and principles as Christians as well. 
Citing the Bible, Azo said there was a time for everything under heaven, a time to quarrel, a time to make peace. With barely few months left for the current tenure to end, Azo said this was the most propitious time for all Naga leaders to unite, keep aside any grudges, bury our hatchets and commit to finding a permanent solution to the present dilemma and predicament through collective political wisdom and foresight.
He further said that the sudden political development which erupted on July 7 “has most regrettably shaken the entire Nagas and took us all by surprise.”
However, as a matter of fact, Azo said that there is only one CM post and a tussle for the same has unwittingly dragged the rest of the legislators and the innocent public into social and political unrest. “Nevertheless, to err is human and as leaders, we are also bound to make mistakes,” he said.
