Kohima: A delegation of Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) held a meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi and apprised her of the changes that are occurring in the demography of Nagaland.
According to a release issued by NPCC President K. Therie, some prominent changes that have occurred are electing BJP nominee to Rajya Sabha unopposed from a Christian state. The voices of Christians and minorities are ignored. The action of United Democratic Alliance (UDA) has left us speechless before the suffering Christian brothers and sisters and minorities in the Nation. Corrupt electoral practices in accepting money and material from corrupt leaders in exchange for votes, is another system which has developed deep roots in democratic elections.
Tolerating extortion, illegal activities and allowing youth to join extortion forces with no objection from customary and administrative guardians has become the norm, it added.
Therie informed that all development funds have cuts for Ministers, Officers and multiple factions and such actions are accepted. They call it commission, contribution and donation.
Corrupt ministers and officers are buying hundreds and thousands of acres of land and building multi-storied buildings all over. Tourism and Medical department funds are used to develop personal properties. The entire budget for twenty years has vanished into thin air.
It does not percolate down to the Districts anymore. Nagas have already lost work culture while our customs, honesty and hospitality that people talk of highly while referring to Nagas, is in danger of being submerged, he added.
The UDA Government is responsible for delay in implementation of the two official agreements between Government of India and Negotiating teams of the NSCN (IM) and the Naga National Political Groups.
The problem is no more with the insurgents; it is with the State Govt who wants to fish out of trouble waters. The UDA Government has destroyed the social inherent structure. They have compromised the State’s Christian faith. To protect themselves from the NIA, CBI, ED and Justice, they are afraid of BJP. 48 Regional MLAs have lost their value and voice, it added.
These being the situation, giving another term to UDA will completely destroy Nagaland and change the demography forever. He said that the Congress President Gandhi highlighted that “we must fight back.
She stated that Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru and the Gandhi family have given protection under the Constitution which must be preserved and protected. She further went to express that the Northeast and especially Nagaland, is close to their hearts and assured to stand with us in the fight.
Gandhi also assured that despite some unavoidable delay, North East Congress coordination Committee (NECCC) and North East Youth Congress coordination Committee (NEYCCC) would be soon reorganised, he further said.
Responding to Congress President’s assurance, “NPCC assured to reach out to all concerned citizens and share the dangers of perishing of our traditional values and faith. We assured her that all is not lost as yet and that there are believers, intelligentsias and senior citizens who continue to uphold the traditional values.” Dr. Ajoy Kumar AICC In-charge of Nagaland assisted the NPCC delegation. He also assured full support to fight the mighty corrupt opponents, the release said.
