Congress leaders NPCC President, K V Pusa, CLP Leader Chingwang Konyak and former chief minister, K L Chishi were all praise for INC candidate for Lok Sabha, K. Asungba Sangtam for his integrity, uprightness, ability to lobby and for what he has done for Naga people at the centre when he was MP for two terms.
While highlighting developments which Sangtam had brought to the state, they regretted that the ruling Democratic Alliance of Nagaland (DAN) was trying to take no notice of all that Sangtam has done for the state.
The collective leadership of the Nagaland Congress was of the strong view that a person like Sangtam could bring many more changes in Nagaland, speaking for Naga political issues which have been dragged for many decades.
Addressing the party meeting at Tseminyu on March 30 along with Sangtam, Congress leaders also appealed to the people of Tseminyu to cast their votes for the INC candidates for bringing development in the constituency. They said Sangtam would be front bencher rather than backbencher in the parliament.
Pusa, Konyak and Chishi also pulled up the DAN for non-transparency in running the government, compounded by corruption in all spheres. They also highlighted some of the centrally sponsored schemes and programmes that do not reach the deserving people. However they assured the people that if Sangtam is elected and UPA comes to power, all schemes and programmes would be implemented in totality.
Assuring of corruption free government if elected, they also slammed the state government for not being prompt in initiating actions against several corruptions, scams and scandals in state departments. They said DAN government was rather trying to hush up NPSC scam where one of its members was also involved, adding, there was no future for Naga people under DAN government.
