DIMAPUR — Leader of the Naga People’s Front (NPF) NPF Legislature party and MLA, Kuzholuzo (Azo) Nienu on Sunday, issued a statement, emphasising that it is not the time for blame games but rather, a time for all sections of society to come together and address the issues facing the Nagas.

Urging for political maturity and constructive engagement from all stakeholders, the NPF leader stressed on collective responsibility and said that both past and present legislators, irrespective of their political affiliations, should “equally take the blame for the mess that we have created.”

He said this in response to recent statements made by former Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president, K Therie, on matters pertaining to the on-going Eastern Nagaland People’s Organisation (ENPO) issue.

While Therie had sought the intervention of Nagaland governor in resolving the ENPO issue, Nienu opined that the latter, “should show more political maturity and bring about a positive outcome on the issue instead of crying at the door of the Raj Bhavan and accusing the present people’s representative specially the present Chief Minister.”

He went on to state that all elected political parties have come together for an opposition-less government in the greater interest of the Naga people and to play the role of an active facilitator to bring about an early, honourable, acceptable, and inclusive solution to the protracted Naga political issue.

“Therefore, one should not blindly accuse the present opposition-less representatives of being voiceless or held responsible for the outcome of the ENPO issue but show his maturity while dealing with any sensitive issues and not pass the buck to anyone,” he added.

Nienu also urged the ENPO and its leadership to consider its decision not to participate in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections scheduled for April 19, but to actively engage in the electoral process to elect a representative who can effectively advocate for the interests of the Naga people and address the demands put forth by the ENPO.
