Nagaland state BJP unit observed the 43rd anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhayay on February 11 at its party head office at Dimapur.
Speaking on the occasion, state BJP president, M. Chuba Ao stated Deendayal Upadhyaya was one of the founders of the BJP, the Bharatiya Jana Sangh in 1951, and also led the party from 1953 to 1968.
Upadhyaya firmly believed that solution to India’s problems and its future direction had to be an indigenous solution and that foreign import like communism or capitalist democracy could at best provide partial solutions.
Deendayal often quoted “A person should seek remedies from his own country”, said Chuba.
Others who spoke on the occasion were Mahila president, Rosy Yanthan, Yava president, Lima Longchar and several senior party workers.
The meeting was chaired by Yambos Lotha.
