The National Council of Churches in India, keeping in mind the political scenario in Nagaland, on account of the upcoming state assembly elections which are to be held on 27th February 2018, appreciates the ongoing campaign of the Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) on Clean Election.
The NCCI urges all churches in Nagaland to continue to pray for peaceful clean elections, and also to encourage one another in ensuring that the upcoming elections will take place in an exemplary manner.
The NCCI also urges all political parties, NGOs and civil society organizations in Nagaland to abide by the call made by NBCC and its suggestions for a clean and responsible election.
The appeal and the guidelines of NBCC are presented below:
No.1 – Letter to the Director General of Police
December 13, 2017
Director General of Police
Nagaland Police Headquarters
PR Hill, Kohima- 797001
Subject: STRICT ENFORCEMENT OF THE NAGALAND LIQUOR TOTAL PROHIBITION (NLTP) ACT, 1989
Warm season greetings from the NBCC Office, Kohima.
In view of the general election in the State related for early next year coming close, the need for concerted effort from all concern, to usher in free and fair election, has become imperative and critical. We believe that strict enforcement of the NLTP Act in the state during the coming months will greatly strengthen the Clean Election Campaign which is currently in motion.
We would, therefore, like to request you to direct all concerned law enforcing agencies under your kind authority to work together with Clean Election Campaign members and volunteers (Youth, Women, Students etc.) so as to stop illegal supply of liquor to towns and villages.
We look forward to your kind cooperation and support. Thank you.
With kind regards,
(REV. DR. ZELHOU KEYHO)
