Newly appointed NPCC president I.Imkong said he has a daunting task ahead to revive the Congress organization in Nagaland following what he described as “ disaster” that had befallen the party during the 2008 elections. Talking to Nagaland Post over telephone from New Delhi Sunday , Mr Imkong said his earlier schedule was to meet with the AICC regarding reorganization of the party in Nagaland.However in view of preoccupation of AICC president Sonia Gandhi, Imkong said his meeting would be rescheduled after January 26. According to Imkong, the Congress in Nagaland needed to be thoroughly revamped at the organization and therefore, it was imperative that the party also reflected the concerns of the people. Imkong said the Congress in Nagaland can be strengthened with inputs from various leaders and cooperation of its well wishers. On what the party in Nagaland felt about the role that party veteran Dr S.C.Jamir, who had returned home after having served for more than six and half years as governor of Goa, Maharashtra (and acting governor of Gujarat), Imkong said the party would discuss the matter at the appropriate forum such as its legislative wing. Imkong said it was necessary that the Congress legislature discuss the issue at length before deciding on arriving at a unanimous resolution to be submitted to the AICC regarding Dr Jamir’s role. He also said Dr Jamir’s recent statement that he would work for the party by contributing towards strengthening it was welcome and positive.Imkong said the former Governor can play an important role in giving valuable advice to the party.
