Nagaland State BJP has alleged that the normal flow of funds meant for various developmental projects in the State was being stalled in New Delhi, engineered by the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) in connivance with the Congress-led UPA government. “It may be recalled that the ongoing developmental projects like the Prime Minister Package, four lane road between Dimapur and Kohima, scheme for employment of 25,000 youths etc. are being withheld by the UPA Govt. at the Centre for reasons best known to them,” stated a resolution passed at the BJP State Executive Meeting held Friday in Dimapur. The State BJP said it had also taken note of the game plans of the Opposition Congress, which was “hell bent” to destabilize the present DAN Government by constantly waging “baseless allegations” against the government. Instead of “baseless” allegations, the Congress should play the role of constructive and positive opposition and to apprise the UPA Government to give due attention to the people of Nagaland in the manner the previous NDA government had done, BJP said. On the Naga peace process, BJP appreciated the DAN Government for its “serious efforts and commitment” towards finding a permanent peaceful negotiated settlement and reconciliation amongst different Naga national groups. The party expressed satisfaction that the political affairs committee (PAC) constituted by the government and NGOs had made much progress in this direction. Appealing to the UPA Government to expedite the Naga peace process and talks, the party also urged all Naga groups to pay heed to the voice of the people for cessation of all forms of violence and to come forward and participate in the process of unity and reconciliation. In this context, the BJP suggested that the government and Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) should organize special get together programmes for women, wives and families of all Naga groups, so that they can come closer with each other. Condemning the atrocities committed against Christians by “fanatic” groups, the party also hit out at the VHP’s opposition to granting of financial assistance by state governments for repair and reconstruction of place of worships. On price hike, the BJP took a dig at the UPA government for failing to check escalation of prices and termed UPA as “Unlimited Pricing Alliance.” Further, the BJP resolved to continue its support to the DAN government and the NDA. Various BJP leaders including Forest minister MC Konyak, parliamentary secretary for Geology & Mining Y Patton, former minister Imtilemba Sangtam, former State BJP president M Chuba and Pohwang Konyak addressed the executive meeting, which was chaired by State BJP general secretary (Admn), TL Merry. State BJP president Ato Yepthomi delivered the keynote address.
