Resignation not before solution: Rio
Source: Hueiyen News Service / Newmai News Network

Dimapur, November 29 2012: "The Joint Legislature Forum (JLF) has resolved to pave way by resigning from their present positions, in the event of an honourable and acceptable solution but that does not mean that we should resign before the solution comes.

Such a scenerio will create a crisis and has the possibility of bringing about imposition of President's rule.

Nagas have greatly suffered whenever President's rule was imposed" .

This was stated by Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio in the 7th General Conference (Convention) of the Naga People's Front held in Dimapur Stadium today.

JLF is floated by 60 Nagaland Legislative Assembly to push for the early Naga solution.

Both Neiphiu Rio and NPF president 'Shurhozelie Liezietsu said today's NPF convention was crucial one because "this may be the last general convention before a solution to the protracted Indo-Naga political problem is brought about." However, both the leaders alerted the gathering to be ready for election saying that if no solution is arrived at before the assembly election date is due, "we should be ready to face it" .

About ten thousand NPF members from Manipur, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and from all the districts of Nagaland participated in today's convention.

"To go to Heaven, Jesus Christ is the only way while to do anything on earth we have to go through politics," asserted Neiphiu Rio and said that NPF is a party floated so that Nagas from all nook and corners will share a common political platform to assert their rights.

"If we cannot integrate ourselves physically today, emotional and political integration are possibly and here NPF is the right platform," the Naga chief minister added.

"We are spending our energy and resources in Manipur, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam for our future," further asserted Neiphiu Rio.

"The Naga people have been struggling for decades in our search for lasting peace.

We desire to live together as a people as we are all members of the same family.

Our adversaries had divided and placed us in four Indian states and in two countries--India and Myanmar," the chief minister stated.

Rio then said that Nagas wherever they are, their culture, identity and food habit are the same.

"Because we are one people--the Naga people," Neiphiu Rio added.

Rio then expressed optimism that the NPF will open its account in Arunachal Pradesh in the next Assembly election.

NPF chief Dr Shurhozielie said in his presidential speech," In the event of a political settlement arrived at, we will not stand on the way but pave the way by stepping down from our position to allow any alternative arrangement to come and stay any day, any hour." "For any eventuality let us, therefore, make the best use of this convention to remind ourselves of our political stand, our policies and principles and also bring better understanding among our rank and file so that all of us can remain firm to hold our fort," alerted the NPF chief.

NPF leaders from Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and elsewhere spoke on the occasion.

Four NPF MLAs from Manipur attended the convention along with large number of their workers.
