BJP women leaders seek Along’s removal

DIMAPUR, MAR 5 (NPN) | Publish Date: 3/5/2021 1:19:32 PM IST

Days after nine district presidents of the state BJP unit demanded the removal of the State unit president Temjen Imna Along, the BJP women’s wing leaders (Bharatiya Janata Mahila Morcha- BJMM), too has joined the bandwagon seeking removal of Imna Along.

In a press note, 15 former BJMM members led by ex-president Sanuo Ngullie and ex-general secretary Asangla Ao and current state BJMM secretary Phyobeni and executive member Bokali Sumi pointed out that Temjen, who was a cabinet minister holding three portfolios, was faced with the daunting task of carrying forward the party’s work, organisational set-up and functioning due to the dual posits being held by him.
This, they said, was leading to divisions amongst party workers, especially due to defeat of the party’s candidate by a huge margin in the by-election to 59 Pungro constituency recently. They alleged that one main reason for the defeat was that the incumbent president was not in a position to devote full time and dedication for the overall welfare and interest of the party as he has to manage three departments simultaneously, adding that there was no clear instructions from him to party karyakartas for proper co-ordination, identification of division and management of works.
The BJMM members said this was compounded by lack of resolution of these pressing issues, which in turn caused huge embarrassment to all party members.  They cautioned that if the present state of affairs was allowed to continue, BJP could end up losing more seats in the 2023 Assembly election since the party has no mass contact.
Mentioning that many representations had been sent to Central leaders in the larger interest of the party, they regretted that no positive response or outcome has been achieved till date. 
They warned that should the incumbent president be allowed to continue, then BJMM Nagaland would be compelled to take extreme steps and measures. On behalf of BJMM, they also strongly advocated the policy of “one man, one post” so that the State president was able to dedicate time 24x7 for the primary welfare and interest of the party.
