Zeliang informed Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) 7 Peren Assembly Constituency (AC) party workers and supporters that the “fate of State General Election 2023 would depend on the outcome of the much-awaited Naga political solution, which the whole Nagas are longing”.
A press release by NDPP 7 Peren AC informed that Zeliang was speaking at the consultative meeting of the NDPP 7 Peren AC Tuesday at his residence.
He said NPF and NDPP came together to form an “opposition-less” government with an objective to strengthen one regional party for the cause of Naga political issue.
“We have seen the positive result of an opposition-less government in the past as the Framework Agreement and Agreed Position was signed in the year 2015 and 2017 respectively when we had an opposition less government,” said Zeliang.
Under the leadership of chief minister, Neiphiu Rio, he said an opposition-less government was formed and with this positive step, the UDA government continues to “sincerely facilitate for an early Naga solution”.
Zeliang also called upon the party men and women to work together as one unit without any reservation and ill feelings towards one another though they have been in different parties in the past.
He also expressed optimism that the party men and women would take this message to their respective units and jurisdiction, which would result in a very positive outcome in the upcoming general election.
He also said that the top brass of NDPP and BJP have come together and taken the decision for 40:20 seat sharing formula and asked the party workers not to be carried away by rumours and speculations that the decision was not the final decision.
Former NLA Speaker and Peren district in-charge, Neiba Ndang also called upon the party workers not to discriminate between themselves on lines of who the old NDPP members or New NDPP members. He asked them to possess an accommodating spirit and work together for the benefit and growth of the party.
The meeting was chaired by president NDPP 7 Peren A/C, Tingbana N Hau and short speeches were delivered by party leaders. The meeting also adopted two-point resolution. The meeting was attended by all the NDPP executives of 7 Peren A/C and its frontal units and also the CEB, COB representing 7 Peren A/C and all executives of the erstwhile NPF who merged to NDPP.
