Ukhrul, March 28 2019: Just one day after the flag hoisting ceremony of NPF candidate Dr Lorho Pfoze was held at Senapati district headquarters, the candidate brought his campaign to Ukhrul district headquarters today to canvass for people’s support on the plank of protecting minority rights and an early logical conclusion to the ongoing Indo-Naga dialogue.
Addressing an election rally today at TNL ground, Dr Lorho said voters must know the truth for it is truth which will set them free from oppression.
“Though I belong to the Naga community, my commitment to serve the people irrespective of community remains firm and solid,” he said and added that issues and problems can be resolved through understanding and dialogue.
Dr Lorho slammed both BJP and Congress for playing the communal card and betraying the minorities with false promises with no visible development despite their regular announcement and assurance.
“I will act as an agent or felicitate the means to resolve the issues confronting the minority communities,” he added.
On CAB, Dr Lorho said that this will infringe on the rights of the indigenous people and added that the ulterior motive of the BJP is to overwhelm the minority communities in their own land.
NPF leader Morung Makunga who also addressed the gathering said that if the Nagas unite then there is no reason why the NPF candidate cannot win the election and reminded all that Nagas form the bulwark of the voters in the Outer Constituency.
Makunga also gave a detailed account of how the NPF came into being as a political party.
MLA Khashim Vashum in his welcome speech urged the people of Ukhrul to support the NPF candidate to fulfil the dreams and aspirations of the Naga people.
Speeches from former UNC president Gaidon Kamei, BD Behring, Joram Woba, Awangbou Newmai rounded up the election campaign of Dr Lorho.
