The letter, a copy of which was shared with the media, stated that they had appealed twice to Ram Madhav, the then National General Secretary of BJP, Dilip Saikia, National General Secretary, BJP, India, to Nalin Kohli, BJP National Spokesperson & I/C Nagaland and five times to J P Nadda.
The six district BJP presidents stated that in their appeals, they emphasized on implementation of the ‘One Man, One Post’ principle in Nagaland “as our current state president is a legislator and minister with many important portfolios to look after and cannot provide time to our party Karyakartas from all levels.”
“Bogging down of functioning of our party in Nagaland due to the manipulation and undemocratic practices being resorted to by the current state president and his henchmen practically resulting in a parallel party organizational set-up,” they stated in the letter.
