Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee organized a welcome programme of former Congress leaders on Friday at DCC office, Dimapur. Former leaders who rejoined include Shri SI Jamir, Former President NPCC, Shri Nillo Rengma, Ex-Minister, Shri Z Lohe, Ex-Speaker, Shri Joshua Sumi, Ex Dy Speaker, Shri Dako Phom, Ex MLA, Shri Supongmeren Ex MLA, Shri Vaprumu Demo, Ex GS NPCC and 14 other leaders of erstwhile Nagaland Congress.

In his welcome speech, Shri K Therie, President NPCC welcomed the former Congress leaders to the party. He said that Congress belongs to everyone and expressed hope that with the joining of former leaders, Congress will put up a united fight to combating the BJP and its regional cohorts. He also expressed his gratitude to all those party workers who have suffered for 16 years in opposition while mentioning that more leaders are joining in the coming days.

Short speeches were delivered by Shri SI Jamir, former President NPCC, Shri Z Lohe, Ex Speaker NLA and Shri Joshua Sumi, Ex Dy Speaker NLA who all expressed their happiness in rejoining back Congress fold. They also appealed to let past misunderstandings be forgotten as Congress will have to put up a united fight to protect secularism and rescue our people by providing a viable alternative in the form of rejuvenated Congress.

Dr SC Jamir in his exhortation highlighted challenges before the Naga people. He accused regional parties for bringing Bankruptcy of Governance and commercialization of politics. He lamented that Nagas have been blinded by materialism and has allowed BJP to win an unprecedented 12 seats while other NE states barring Assam had managed to check growth of BJP. Further stressing on, he opined that Naga society is in delirium and that NPF is already exhausted while NDPP is only a stop gap arrangement to fool the people. Dr Jamir asserted that Naga people should only be controlled by elected people and that Congress workers should have the courage to tell truth to the people and articulate very clearly that we can serve, help and lead the people. He termed today’s programme is being held at an opportune time and that Congress today is solidified. He urged that dissents and internal bickering within the party should be shunned. Maintaining that INC is a party with vision and clear ideology, he reasoned that INC can never be uprooted while challenging party workers to be active and propagate the programmes and policies of Congress.

Concluding remarks was given by Capt. GK Zhimomi, General Secretary NPCC. Appreciating all those present in the meeting for sparing their time to receive former party leaders, he said that it was a tough decision when some Congress leaders differed with the party decision and decided to part ways more than three years ago. Today’s rejoining of those former leaders puts all past bitterness to rest. Urging party leaders to look at the larger picture ahead, he expressed hope that Congress will progress to greater heights with a united stand to deliver hope to downtrodden and suppressed people of Nagaland.

Welcome Programme was chaired by Shri Jonathan Ao, Vice President NPCC while Invocation was pronounced by Shri Bobby Panicker, Working President NPCC and NK Naga enthralled the meeting by belting out a special song in Hindi.
