JBC youth pledges for ‘Clean Election’

 

 

Kohima, August 2 (MExN): The Youth Department of Jakhama Baptist Church (JBC) conducted a seminar on ‘Clean Election’ with Kezhokhoto Savi, President, NVCO as speaker at Jakhama Baptist Church on July 29 where more than 100 youth including pastors and church leaders signed the Clean Election Pledge.

 

Speaking to the youths Savi said, “The time has come for every citizen to realize that one’s vote decides the fate of the five years and beyond and it is important to vote for a candidate who has genuine concern for public, honest, qualified, competent, bearing strong moral responsibility ready to sacrifice on moral ground and a candidate of having integrity”.

 

The root cause of corruption is the unfair means of conduct of election especially State General Assembly Election where the contesting candidates spend “huge money” for the illegal means of practices such as buying or selling votes, threatening, rich people sponsor candidate financially so as to make money in future if voted to power, huge supply of liquor, etc, Savi stated.

 

“To me as a voter, I would like to vote for a candidate who is not so thirsty for power and greed for money because these are the causes bringing divisions amongst the so called elected candidates leading to the extent of fighting for the post of chief minister/minister berth/portfolio and may even go to different camps,” he added.

 

However, the voters are the ones who had elected leaders to ruin us such as backdoor appointments, several scam, huge appointment against no sanction of post which seriously affects the state exchequer, inducting commissioner to the highest commission where the commission is not there or not functioning, etc. He also said, “We all know that the Election Code of Conduct itself is good enough to conduct a clean and fair election but today we live in a situation where ‘everybody knew but nobody obeyed’ and ‘everybody said and nobody did’.”

 

“Now the opportunity has come that the people can bring about a corruption-free government in this democratic system of government but it would be possible only when the conduct of election especially the forth coming State General Assembly Election is ‘clean’,” he stated in conclusion.
