A delegation of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), Nagaland unit led by its president Vanthungo Odyuo attended the 7th All India NCP Convention from August 28 to 29 held in New Delhi.

During the convention Sharad Pawar was elected unanimously for the record seventh time. He has been in the position since the formation of the party in 1999. 

Pawar in his speech said the NCP should begin a new approach for its visions and programs that make the party different and special. “Though we are not a very big party, we have a very important role to play,” Pawar said adding “We are in a year when the country is gearing up to overthrow the communal forces in the forthcoming parliamentary elections that have come to the power at the centre.”

Pawar asserted that NCP was ready to take on new challenges because the party had always remained committed to a just, equitable, secular, modern and prosperous India where every citizen is empowered.

The NCP president said that he was deeply concerned with the NDA governments’ policies which, he said, were divisive, destructive and disruptive propaganda and a looming threat to integrity of India. He argued that no social security measures have been taken for farmers above the age of sixty or for other marginal and vulnerable farmers and landless labourers. He also brought up the subject of employment as another equally important issue where the Modi government had failed the country in the four years of its governance.

Pawar said NCP solemnly believes in the notion that economic development cannot be delinked from human development, adding the NCP was committed for a new India “that is internally strong and respected internationally.”

After the convention, Odyuo met NCP National president Sharad Paward; Tariq Anwar, MP, NCP National general secretary; Praful Patel, MP, NCP National general secretary; Dr. Fauzia Khan, president Nationalist Mahila Congress; Dheeraj Sharma, president Nationalist Youth Congress and others. It may be mentioned that at present NCP has 12 MPs: five in the Rajya Sabha and 7 in the Lok Sabha.
