Nagaland Pradesh Congress Seva Dal (NPCSD) held its executive meeting on Thursday here at Congress Bhavan Dimapur. 

Addressing the gathering, chief organizer, All India Congress Seva Dal (AICSD), Lalji Desai, stated that his purpose of visit was to understand the culture of Nagaland, asserting that people of mainland India were not much aware of the different culture of North East. “When we talk about the idea of India, we also need to understand the culture of the people living in the hill areas”, he added. 

Desai shared on how he joined politics in February 2014, when Congress, during that time, was losing the election battle nationally. He added that many would join a party which was expected to win and come to power. He however maintained that his ideology was to join a political party that united India, and the party that fought for India’s independence, not caring whether they came to power or not. 

Desai explained that he was noticed by Rahul Gandhi when he was organizing an agitation against the then chief minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, who did not hesitate to encounter, kill, arrest, or put to jail for those who went against him. “We were in war against a cruel chief minister”, Desai stated. 

Speaking on the birth of Seva Dal, Desai reminded that it was started in jail by the congress party in 1923, to organize and make discipline within the political party, adding that congress workers and volunteers during that time were not agitating in an organized manner. 

He further added that earlier, the Seva Dals were trained on how to fight against violence, in a non violent way. 

Meanwhile, speaking of the RSS, he pointed out that the RSS was dividing and destroying the country on the basis of religion, caste, region, language, etc. He appealed the gathering not to give chance to RSS to insert its poison to the minds of Nagas, claiming that they were very poisonous. He also termed the RSS and people of RSS as “traitors” of India’s independence movement and also today’s united India. 

He further maintained that BJP was financially strong, that they have started buying MPs and MLAs. He noted that the price of MLAs in Gujarat depended from how much margin they won the election, varying between 5 to 22 crores. “Amit Shah and Narendra Modi have started auctioning of MLAs and MPs”, he alleged.  

“You buy MLAs and MPs that means you are buying India’s democracy”, he further added. He also stated that they were destroying India’s democracy and culture.  

Earlier, the programme was chaired by K Azo Rhakho, invocation offered by pastor, Sunday ministry, Ningmi, while welcome address was delivered by chief organizer, NPCSD, YS Yongyo Konyak. 

Short speeches were also delivered by national secretary AICSD, N Neilo Koza, national secretary, North East in-charge, Chandan Baurah, and chairman, minority cell, Nagaland Congress Pradesh Committee, Rajesh Kumar Sethi.
