Kohima, Mar 18 (UNI) The Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN), led by Nagaland Peoples Front (NPF), has constituted a ten-member Political Affairs Committee (PAC) with the objective of pursuing peace initiatives in the strife-torn Naga society.
A release issued here today said the PAC will be headed by former state Health and Family Welfare Minister in the last DAN government Dr T M Lotha, who failed to win the elections to the 11th Nagaland Legislative Assembly.
A meeting in this regard was held here yesterday at the residential office of Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio, who, as the Chairman of the DAN Coordination Committee, constituted the PAC.
While Dr Lotha will be the chairman of the PAC, former Speaker A Lohe would be the member secretary. Other members included Imchalemba, Dr Kanito, C M Chang, Powang, Sulangthung, Lima Temjen, Zaaku Tsukru and Advocate Timikha.
The objective of the committee's formation was to pursue its declared policy to continue to strive for peace, unity and integration among different sections of the Naga society.
''Our priority is to continue to pursue and strive for political solutions to the Naga political issues,'' NPF president and Urban Development Minister Dr Shurhozelie said, adding that there should be unity amongst the different sections of the Naga society and the PAC will strive to bring all the sections together.
''The PAC will meet from time to time to frame strategies and programmes to carry forward activities and initiatives towards bringing peace, unity and reconciliation among the different sections of the Naga society,'' the statement added.
