DIMAPUR — The Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) has thanked and congratulated the electorate of Nagaland for coming forward to exercise their universal adult franchise by casting their valuable votes for the candidate of their choice.

In a press release issued on Friday, the NDPP said that electoral battles are contested by responsible political parties to ensure the victory of their chosen candidates.

“But it is the voice of the people that enable those parties and candidates get elected. Today, the electorates of Nagaland have once again ensured that democracy has emerged victorious,” it said.

It also congratulated the government machinery and the Election Commission of India (ECI), led by the CEO and the state Election department for successfully conducting ‘the most peaceful elections’.

The NDPP went on to say that it had maintained a dignified and matured campaign by focusing on the achievements and visions of the party “despite our opponents resorting to mudslinging and indiscriminate personalised attacks on our leaders and the party”.

‘We had assured the people and the ECI of our full support towards the strengthening of the democratic foundations of the country, and accordingly, we have strictly adhered to the Model Code of Conduct,’ it maintained, while lauding the party leaders and workers for concentrating on taking the policies and programmes of the party and the government to the people and not resorting to negative politics.

It said that the aim of the NDPP has always been to strive for unity, overcome the forces of polarisation and stay firm to its 2023 manifesto of taking Nagaland towards a ‘State of Excellence’.

“We have avoided narrow tribalism or communal agenda because we understand that elections will come and go but we have to live together as one Naga family for all times to come,” it stated.

Further, it expressed gratitude to all members of the People’s Democratic Alliance (PDA) and the political parties of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), for tirelessly working for the PDA consensus candidate.

Stating that the support from all sections of the people has also positively contributed towards the success of the elections, it lauded other candidates in the fray and political parties, while urging them to “respect the mandate of the people, irrespective of whatever may be the final result, so that we can collectively work towards the all-round progress and development of Nagaland”.
