Union minister of state for steel Faggan Singh Kulaste claimed that the North East, along with rest of the country, was moving towards development and progress under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s able leadership.

“No PM in the past had thought so much about the welfare of the people of the North Eastern region. But now, under the leadership of Modi, the region is moving forward towards development and progress along with rest of the country,” Kulaste remarked while launching a membership drive for BJP in Nagaland at Hotel Japfu here on Saturday. The membership drive is part of the two-month-long Sangathan Parv (nationwide enrolment drive).

The event was also held to coincide with the 118th birth anniversary of BJP stalwart Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee.

Kulaste claimed that the trust of the people of the nation on the BJP-led NDA government was increasing due to which the party’s membership in the country had reached 11 crore.

Mentioning that Nagaland now had 1.18 lakh BJP members after the first membership drive was launched in 2014, he asserted that the State unit was targeting to enrol another 2.5 lakh members during the current membership drive to have at least 3.5 lakh BJP members in the State. 

He urged the BJP State leaders, legislators and mandal functionaries to work hard to bring in more members into the world’s largest political party and work together for development and progress.

Nagaland deputy chief minister Y Patton, who was also present, called upon all citizens of the State to come forth and enrol themselves and be a part of the world’s largest political party.

Mentioning that BJP was given an “unprecedented majority” in the recent Lok Sabha elections by the people of India, he said the resounding mandate for the second term came with huge responsibilities, expectations and trust.

“Modi’s mantra of ‘Saab Ka Sath, Saab Ka Vikas, Saab ka Viswas’ needs to be emulated by all BJP karyakartas and we should take this vision to every nook and corner of this country and to our people and make it a reality,” he exhorted.

Patton also announced cash incentives of Rs 2 lakh, Rs 1.5 lakh and Rs 1 lakh respectively for the three best performing mandals in the membership drive.

He also reminded the gathering about Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee’s contribution to national unity and integrity and described Mukherjee as a unique symbol of patriotism, sacrifice and dedication.

Speaking on the occasion, BJP State president and higher & technical education minister Temjen Imna Along appealed to party legislators to strengthen their mandals and also to support the party workers who would reach out to interior areas for the membership drive.

Along reminded them that, unlike other States, it was not easy in Nagaland to reach out to grassroots people, adding how difficult it was to win the hearts of the people of the State.

He insisted that the visions, plans and policies and schemes of the party must be made known to the people at the grassroots level to ensure that the targeted people were benefitted.

He stressed that the vision of Mod’s “Saab Ka Sath, Saab Ka Vikas, Saab ka Viswas” must be achieved, adding that the aspiration of Nagas, including the Naga political solution, would come from the central leaders.

BJP State general secretary and co-in-charge of state membership committee Jaangsillung Gonmei chaired the programme, while Er Longshi Kikon, in-charge of state membership committee delivered the welcome note.

BJP unit vice-president and Kohima district in-charge Peter Rutsa gave the vote of thanks.
