Manipur NPF doing tremendous job, says minister Dikho
Kohima, Feb. 1 (EMN): Manipur’s minister of Public Health Engineering Department (PHED), Printing and Stationary, Losü Dikho, stated that the Naga People’s Front (NPF) legislators from Manipur are performing a tremendous job for the uplift of the people.
He stated this while speaking as the chief guest during the inaugural function of the Chokri Area Games and Sports’ Association (CAGSA) golden jubilee celebration at Phusachodu village in Phek district on Monday.
Stating that the strong leadership of the NPF party in Nagaland has expanded to Manipur, he asserted that ‘NPF has become a very important political party in Manipur’. He has attributed the party to flourished “Because NPF can deliver peace and love among the people of Manipur.”
Dikho maintained that Manipur for many years was going through lots of problems and communal disharmony. He added that ‘the party when it first entered into the political arena, people were sceptical about the party and thought it as a communal party and going to divide Manipur’.
He, however, claimed that NPF has proven itself as a secular party and is able to motivate the people to ‘restore peace and harmony in the state’.
“For so many years, before the NPF joined the Manipur government there was a problem, but now there is a drastic change,” said Dikho.
Maintaining that Manipur was known for “bandhs and blockades,” the NPF legislators stated that the state is now evolving as ‘one of the most peaceful states in the country now’ after the NPF party joined the government.
He also informed that there is ‘massive development in the state in terms of air connectivity, medical institutions emerging with super-specialty hospitals, medical tourism that is attracting people from nearby countries like Myanmar and big cities for treatment’.
While stressing on the importance of fostering unity among the people especially between Manipur- Nagaland, the minister was optimistic that further development could be achieved in the larger interest of the Naga people.
