Dimapur, Aug 23 (EMN): Leaders of the Dr. Shurhozelie Liezietsu-led side of the Naga People’s Front (NPF) on Wednesday informed to have sought God for a solution ‘according to his will’ to resolve the ongoing leadership crisis in the party.
The legislators conducted a ‘special prayer meeting’ at the party’s headquarters in Kohima town on Wednesday, a press release from the media cell of the group informed on August 23.
“The congregation sought God’s blessing at this time of turmoil and crisis to deliver His judgment according to His Will so that the party can work truly according to the God’s wisdom for the Naga people in true spirit,” the press release began.
Delivering a message from Joshua 1: 5-9 was legislator Dr Chotisüh Sazo, the press release stated. He urged the party’s leaders to be “strong and courageous like Joshua and stand with the truth stating that God would never leave, nor forsake the people who are strong and remain truthful.”
According to the update, Dr. Sazo maintained that like Moses who gave the law to his people, “likewise the people as well as the party workers were bound by the Constitution of India and the party Constitution.”
“Therefore, the MLA said that there is no need to be in a confused state as we have the Constitutions which will deliver their judgments soon.” He maintained that “if we are in the right track, there is nothing to be worried about but to remain strong with the truth judgment is delivered.” He requested the party’s leaders to uphold the word of God, stating that “nothing is stronger in life then to remain faithful and truthful with God.”
As God commanded Joshua to be courageous and obey the law, the press release stated, Dr. Sazo also urged the leaders “to be like Joshua for the Lord will always be with them wherever they go.”
In a message too, the chairman of the Democratic Alliance of Nagaland Kuzholuzo Nienu was quoted as having stated that the Bible “teaches us more to be honest and obedient.” He urged the leaders to be “always honest and obedient in whatever they do.”
“As long as we are honest and courageous, there is nothing to be worried,” the press release quoted him as having said. Quoting from The Judges chapter 6-7, the MLA said that “any battle is won only through prayer, belief, faith and trust in the Lord and no battle can be won by merry making or with numbers of soldiers.”
That aside, the party’s spokesperson, Achumbemo Kikon was quoted as having told the party’s workers to be ‘patience’ as the NPF party “has not done wrong against any party or individual but only moving with the constitution and that “sooner or later, the Court, which is the guardian of the Constitution, would favour us.” He remarked that the ‘TR/Rio group’ (Chief Minister TR Zeliang and Member of Parliament Neiphiu Rio) had “nothing to produce before the court but only to adjourn and delay tactic for the hearing,” the press release added.
