The Naga People’s Front (NPF) observed its 58th Foundation Day today at its head Office, Senapati. Organised by the NPF, Senapati Division, the program was attended by different executives of the state and district, constituencies and district council constituencies, ADC members, intending ADC candidates from the party and supporters of the party.

Speaking on the occasion, Thisho Kriina, ADC member, 6-Pudunamei DCC stated that the NPF came to Manipur in 2011 when a strong team of the NPF ruled in Nagaland. After the launching of the party, 4 candidates from NPF were elected to Manipur Legislative Assembly in 2012 that later led to recognition of the party as a recognised political party in the state assembly.

Later in 2015, the NPF led Govt was formed in the ADC, Senapati as majority and got elected the MP from the party with support from the public. With the approach of the ADC election is round the corner, the councilor mentioned that many intending candidates are in fray seeking for party ticket and urged the gathering to support the party in the coming ADC election.
