Dimapur, August 10

Expressing appreciation to the State government for passing the NLTP Bill 1989 and enacting law, the United Sangtam Baptist Lithroti Ashimükhong (USBLA) suggested that a growing and developing state like Nagaland needs to successfully implement the NLTP Act in every possible way in order to improve the livelihood in particular and development in general.
It also urged all the churches to recommit themselves to live in liquor free homes, streets, markets, offices, work place, villages and towns, according to a release issued by USBLA executive secretary Rev. C. Lima.
“Do not keep NLTP Bill in a cool storage rather policy makers and law enforcers to be more serious and committed to the Bill and strictly implement the Bill,” the USBLA further urged the government. Implementation of the Act would bring economic stability, healthy life, stable family, quality education and standard life in the society and will please to God, it stated. The USBLA also affirmed that it would continue to urge the government to strengthen its commitment for total implementation of the Act.
Explaining that from time immemorial, the church is aware of the evil effect of the liquor and thus has been actively involved in creating awareness among the believers in general and letting them know its evil effects and to be free from its bondage, the USBLA asserted that it will continue to stand firm for total implementation of the NLTP Bill and support the government steadfastly.
“The liquor is already cursed by every Christian individually in Nagaland when the law was enacted and prayed that no Christian will be victim of this,” the USBLA said.
