DIMAPUR, Nov 21 – The Nagaland unit of BJP has accused both the NPF and Congress of staging a ‘drama’ with the ‘resignation game’ and trying to gain political mileage out of the ongoing peace talks.
“It is only an eyewash on the part of Joint Legislators Forum”, said BJP president Dr M Chuba Ao and general secretary K James Vizo in a release.
Further stating that there is ‘complete lack of seriousness in them’, the saffron party unit demanded that both parties should resign en-mass.
The release pointed out that the Winter session of Parliament will be starting from November 22. There is no clue or indication that the Naga political issue will be tabled, it said. They maintained that there is no chance of a solution before the State Assembly election.
The BJP officials regretted that the Naga people in general are being put into confusion by talks of ‘solution before election’ when ‘in reality it is quite different’.
It recalled that during the NDA regime, through the efforts of seven State BJP legislators, the State could get a special package of more than Rs 1,000 crore and wipe off the State’s deficit of Rs 365 crore.
Suggesting that both NPF and the Congress should stop playing the ‘resignation game’ and start working for the people, the State BJP said the Congress should bring funds from the Cong-ruled Central Government for the State’s development while the ruling NPF should execute it transparently.
