Kohima: Following a series of positive meetings and interactions with central leaders in New Delhi, the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) led by Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio informed that Union Home Minister Amit Shah has assured People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) will continue “even beyond the present term”.
Through a communiqué issued by Rio along with the party’s President Chingwang Konyak and Secretary-General Abu Metha, the party recalled its meeting with Shah, National BJP President JP Nadda and BJP National General Secretary BL Santosh from June 28 to July 2.
As it acknowledged the Central leadership and the BJP high command, the party said it “appreciates the full-fledged endorsement and upholding” of the chief minister and the “reassurance on the trust and confidence of the PDA Coalition”.
“It is worth appreciating that the Honourable Union Home Minister had assured the NDPP delegation that the PDA Coalition will complete the present term under Mr Rio’s leadership with full honour and dignity and that the PDA Coalition would continue even beyond the present term,” it said.
The NDPP further gave its full-fledged assurance and commitment that the party will uphold the spirit of the PDA coalition which is a pre-poll alliance with a seat-sharing formula. It added saying “The NDPP will never deviate from the understanding and spirit of the alliance which is based on trust and common understanding”.
On the Naga political issue, the party appreciated the “seriousness” of the union home minister, particularly the advice to the CM and Leader of Opposition to give a joint statement, which was made on December 18 last year.
“These steps have contributed towards unity and understanding which has resulted in the institution of the Parliamentary Committee and the Core Committee on Naga Political Issue,” the party said.
The Party also acknowledged all Members of the Nagaland Legislative Assembly (NLA) for the formation of the Parliamentary Committee and Core Committee on Naga Political Issue which includes all MLAs and both Members of Parliament (MPs) from the state.
Further, it endorsed the adoption of the 5-point resolution by the Core Committee on July 9.
