The NPF leader also stated that many Nagas have forgotten their roots and that a day might come “when we completely abolish our identity and culture as Nagas for the sake of power and thirst of money” but reiterated that as long as the oldest regional political party NPF exist, it will protect and preserve the true identity of the Naga people with the party being the “guardian of the Naga people.”
