Nagaland: Azo urges Centre to take up Naga issue during Parliament session

UDA co-chairman and NPF Legislature Party leader Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu said if the Central government was sincere on resolving the Naga political issue, then it should table Naga political issue during the ongoing Winter Session of the Parliament, which began from December 7.
He also mentioned that if the matter was tabled in Parliament, then the forthcoming Assembly election may be withheld. However, if this was not done, Azo said election was imminent and would be held as per schedule.
Addressing the golden jubilee celebration of Kutsapo Sports Association as chief guest, Azo also demanded that the “common draft” agreement between Government of India and Naga political groups should be placed in public domain for public consumption before inking the final deal to resolve the Naga political issue.
He maintained that if the Central government was serious in bringing a practical solution to the Naga political issue, then it should not hesitate or prolong but deliver justice to Naga people at the earliest.
Azo claimed that NPF was committed to facilitate in bringing a final solution to the Naga political issue that was honourable, acceptable and inclusive as the party’s priority was early settlement. He also clarified that current UDA partners were also committed to bringing a final solution and not election.
Exhorting the gathering, the NPF leader remarked that jubilee was a time for celebration, but maintained that celebration alone would be meaningless unless people reconciled, forgot and forgave and continued the friendship among one another.
He underlined that it was a time for people to introspect on the areas where they could improve and develop.
Azo urged sportspersons participating at the event to put God above everything else and be sincere and dedicated in their respective fields of activity to reach their full potential, stating that in God’s dictionary, there was nothing as impossible and many things were possible.
Others who addressed the gathering include– deputy commissioner Phek, Kumar Ramnikant; superintendent of police Phek Bharat Laxman Markad and 5th NAP commandant Y Ngullie. This was stated in an statement issued by the NPF press bureau.
