CEM apprehensive of having another opposition-less govt

While congratulating the NDPP-BJP alliance for forming government for the second time in Nagaland, Clean Election Movement (CEM) team under the aegis of Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) said it was apprehensive of having an opposition-less government in a democratic state.
“Though we feel apprehensive of having an opposition less government in a democratic state, it appears that regional political parties have become too weak to give a good fight,” Dr. Villo Naleo convenor CEM said in a press note.
However, he said that CEM would keep its fingers crossed, firstly to pray for them and secondly to see them making a difference. He said CEM wanted to bless the 60 MLAs with ‘Franciscan Benediction’. “May God bless you with discomfort, at easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships so that you may live deep within your heart,” Dr. Naleo said.
CEM also prayed that God bless them “with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.”
“May God bless you with tears, to shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain to joy. And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in the world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done, to bring justice and kindness to all our children and the poor. Amen,” the release stated.
