 NPF highlights dangers for NE if BJP  returns

Naga People’s Front Legislature Party) leader TR Zeliang on Tuesday warned Naga people that if BJP came back to power in Delhi, the North-eastern region and Nagaland in particular would be adversely affected as the social fabric of indigenous people would be destroyed, stated NPF Press Bureau.

Speaking on the eve of the last day of the election campaign for Congress candidate KL Chishi at Samziuram, Peren and Jalukie town, Zeliang reminded that BJP in its manifesto had committed to revive the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) and also opposed any move to review the controversial Armed Forces Special Power Act (AFSPA). Zeliang also alleged that BJP at the Centre was never serious about resolving the “Indo-Naga” political issue but was only offering a false hope to the people. He said during the past five years the BJP-led NDA government had only made announcement after announcement for a solution, but in reality it was never committed to bring about an amicable solution to the problem. 

He also accused the PDA government of having no concern for the people and likened it as “ a wolf in sheep clothing”, by only trying to please BJP to retain power.

Zeliang also said the PDA government’s achievements was nothing but “harvesting” what the previous DAN-III government had sown. He also alleged that the PDA was merely implementing the works sanctioned during the DAN III regime and that no new scheme or project could be brought about from Delhi.

He said the only achievement of the PDA government so far organizing Hornbill Festival, Mini Hornbill Festival and the cabinet meeting conducted at Kiphire district headquarters once.

Zeliang said the other “visible development of the PDA government” was random transfer of officers as punishment posting and removal of employees from their services.

Zeliang said the other “visible development of the PDA government” was random transfer of officers as punishment posting and removal of employees from their services. 

Zeliang called upon the electorate of the state to go to polling booths on April 11 and to vote wisely.

NPCC terms BJP manifesto ‘anti-minority, anti-diversity’

Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) Tuesday termed as “anti-minority and anti-diversity” BJP election manifesto 2019 and said the manifesto commits to pass the Citizenship Amendment Bill and also assures to remove Article 370 and 35A from the Constitution of India. 
In a press release, NPCC president, K Therie, said Article 371(A) would also be in danger of meeting a similar fate.
Therie asserted that BJP’s assurance to pass CAB was with intent to “wipe out the identity and existence of minorities” particularly in the North East region. 
Terming as “incorrect” PDA’s plea that Art 371(A) and ILP would protect Nagaland, NPCC president said that if CAB was passed, no one could stop granting citizenship. He said that once citizenship was granted before the Constitution of India, they would have equal rights and opportunities and they cannot be stopped from voting.
With such voting power, Therie said immigrants, who would come in crores, would also have the power to elect representatives. “And since the decision making process is by the majority, in a few decades, we will have no place and will be reduced to a minority in our own land as has happened with the indigenous Tripuri people,” he said. NPCC chief said that if the PDA’s decision to oppose CAB was “honest” and they were sincere, PDA candidate should resign from contesting to prove their commitment and sincerity.
