Nagaland Governor, NPCC President condole demise of M. Vero

Kohima, Jan 24 (UNI) The Governor of Nagaland and Meghalaya R. N. Ravi has expressed shocked at the demise of Padma Shri Melhupra Vero, the first Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) from among the Naga People today at Dimapur.

According to a release issued by the PRO of Raj Bhvan of Kohima said that Governor Ravi, in a condolence message said that Late Melhupra Vero was decorated with one of the highest civilian honour, Padma Shri in 2006 for his contributions to the society. He had served the society in different capacities as Member of Parliament (RS), Minister of Nagaland Government, President of Naga Hoho, etc. In his death the State has lost a dedicated and sincere public leader, he added. The Governor conveyed his deepest condolences to the bereaved family members. He wished that “Let the Almighty God give strength and fortitude to the family to bear with this devastating loss and eternal peace to the departed soul,” the release said.

In a separate release the President of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee K. Therie said that the demise of Late Melhupra Vero, former MP and Minister is like a wall of protection has fallen.

In his condolence message Therie said that “A peaceful human, he did not see any problem as too difficult in his life. His way of taking on problems was always simple and nice. I particularly remember the time he was served with expulsion order by Late J B Jasokie. He read the letter and requested the delivery boy to hold on. In turn, he immediately wrote late ‘J B Jasokie is expelled for six years’ and sent the letter through the delivery boy. No hard feelings and the matter ended there. I enjoyed serving with him at various stages of his political life. He was a committed Congress Voter till his physical inabilities overcame him. In his last innings in social politics as President of Naga Hoho, he did all within his power to unite Naga National Workers for a united stand. It is unfortunate that Naga National Workers hardly respected his call for unity after which, he advised me to talk less. I now understand what he meant. If he has any regret in life, it is the division of Naga National Workers he witnessed.”

“In his demise, I have no replacement. In the loss, I have only grown older. My wife and children join me, in conveying our condolences to Aunty Kerele and Children. May the Almighty God grant strength to you all and comfort you all through this painful hour,” Therie condoled.
