BJP Nagaland unit has reaffirmed its stand towards realising an early political solution to the Naga political issue.

In a resolution adopted in this regard at the first executive virtual meeting held on August 29 at The Heritage Kohima for the tenure 2020-23, the party asserted that it stood for an early solution to the Naga political issue that was inclusive, acceptable and honourable, keeping in mind the history and political rights of the people. 

Observing that the talks have made tremendous strides in recent years, the party appreciated all groups involved– the Government of India (GoI), NSCN (I-M) and Working Committee of Naga National Political Groups (WC, NNPGs) – for their sincerity in having brought the peace process thus far. 

Claiming that the PDA government, of which BJP is an integral partner, was playing the role of an active facilitator in the ongoing political negotiations, the party acknowledged the negotiating parties in their quest for lasting peace and all-round development of Naga people. 

It also reaffirmed its earlier declared stand under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP’s national president Jagat Prakash Nadda.

Resolving to continue fighting COVID-19 pandemic in the State and across the country in every possible way, the sate BJP stated that till date its legislators and karyakartas have been working tirelessly to fight the pandemic. 

The party declared that it would continue to follow the pragmatic vision of Modi for Aatma Nirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India) by actively promoting local manufacturing of various essential products for self-reliance while fighting the pandemic.

Conveying its gratitude to Modi and the BJP-led NDA government for having brought the country thus far when it can produce two lakh PPE kits and N95 masks per day now as against zero production when the pandemic began, the party’s State unit declared to continue working tirelessly for the people of the State and the country. 

The party further resolved to stand with the commitment made during the pre-poll alliance for PDA with NDPP under the leadership and blessing of Modi, then national BJP president Amit Shah and Nadda. 

The State unit declared to continue standing faithfully committed to uphold the party principles and ideologies and bring all-round development, peace and prosperity to the people of Nagaland by restructuring its stand and vision for a self reliant Nagaland under the dynamic leadership of Modi and Nadda.

Earlier, in his presidential address, State BJP president Temjen Imna Along welcomed all central leaders and thanked them for their constant support in guiding him all along. He asserted the State BJP has come a long way since the time it did not have a single elected member in the Legislative Assembly to having 12 MLAs now. He appreciated party’s former State president Visazolie Lhoungu for his presence and his great leadership in bringing the State unit thus far despite all difficulties. 

The first session of the rally was addressed by Union Minister of State for External Affairs V Muralidharan, wherein he congratulated the new team of office bearers and expressed his happiness at the successful virtual meeting of the State BJP’s first executive meeting. 

Speaking on the Naga political issue, Muralidharan highlighted some landmark achievements and progress made under the leadership of Modi like the historic signing of the Frame Work Agreement on August 3, 2015 between GoI and NSCN (I-M) and the agreement signed with WC, NNPGs on November 17, 2017. 

He observed that the Naga political issue was at a very crucial juncture and claimed that the NDA government led by Modi, who is ably supported by Nadda and Shah, was very keen to bring the decades-old Naga issue to a logical conclusion. 

He appreciated Along for leading from the front in the battle against COVID-19 and efficiently dealing with the pandemic in Nagaland along with all the BJP karyakartas. 

On the occasion, certificates of appreciation and little tokens of love were given away to families through full-time workers after observing one-minute silence as a mark of respect to the departed souls.

The second session was addressed by BJP’s national general secretary and Northeast in-charge Ram Madhav during which he remarked that the party’s Nagaland unit had come a long way from being branded as “non-Naga”, “anti-Christian party”, “Hindu party”, etc, to becoming a partner in the ruling coalition with 12 MLAs at present with a strong network across the State. 

Madhav said it was the courage and toil of the karyakartas in the past that brought the BJP to its present situation in Nagaland. 

The third session saw the adoption of party resolution led by State vice-president Kevidezo Peter Rutsa and its subsequent adoption and approval by the House. Organisational report as well as future programme of the party was presented by the party’s State general secretary Khevishe Serna.
