Kohima: Nagaland’s main opposition party, the Naga People’s Front (NPF) on Monday extended its solidarity to Nagas living in Myanmar. The party also assured its fullest support in the struggle for democracy and just peace.
Through a statement, the party expressed “its deep concern over the unrest situation taking place in Myanmar ever since the Military Junta took over the government by overwhelming the democratically-elected government”.
“It is unfortunate that so many innocent people have lost their lives in the course of the protest against the military rule,” the party said. The NPF said that as a political party, it believes in democratic values either in the form of expression of opinion or peaceful protest against tyrannical governance.
It added saying, “The party strongly feels that in any civilized world, the freedom of expression and peaceful protest should not be encountered with brute force”. NPF expressed hope that “good sense will prevail amongst the Military Junta leadership and a peaceful atmosphere would reign without losing any more innocent life”.
