Dimapur, July 8 (MExN): The Liberal Democratic Party Nagaland (LDPN) held a meeting on July 8 where the members present resolved to clarify the position of the party.
According to a press release issued by the LDPN Press Bureau, the party which was formed as a regional political party, a movement of the concerned intellectual Nagas against the corrupted system, has failed to register as a political party, owing to genuine reasons; financial as well as failing to enroll the required number of members during the allotted time, as per the Representation of the People Act.
During the meeting, it was resolved that the LDPN will continue to exist as a civil society, until further notice in the future, and to keep on voicing out political concerns. “Checking the ground realities, since Nagaland was yet to implement true democratic values in its systems, the LPDN would be open for ties with any existing political party who resolves to abide by the true ideals of democracy,” the LDPN Press Bureau added.
The press release also mentioned that leaders of the LDPN went on to meet RN Ravi at Police guest house in Chumukedima, Dimapur, on Saturday, however, due to tight schedule, the meeting was not possible. However the LDPN, led by the President, Imkum Ao, and K. Chishi, managed to drop suggestions to Sameer, a PR (public relation) officer stating that…”the document of the Framework itself had to be taken into the consent of the people and not just the concept of the framework agreement.”
