The BJP Mokokchung district on Tuesday announced that they fully endorsed the demand of state BJP officials for “No seat sharing” module in the upcoming Nagaland assembly elections 2023.

Interacting with the media persons at BJP Mokokchung district office, the district president, Imolemba Jamir, informed that yesterday’s dharna (January 23) was a demand for 30:30 seat sharing between NDPP and BJP. He, however, stated that they have received directives from the state BJP officials on Tuesday morning to demand for “No seat sharing” module.

On Tuesday at around 2 pm, the BJP Mokokchung district displayed a banner declaring “The BJP Mokokchung district do not accept the seat sharing formula for the upcoming Nagaland assembly election 2023” outside its office.

When queried about NDPP and BJP post poll alliance, they responded by saying that the post poll alliance with NDPP would remain but proposed for ‘friendly contest.’

BJP Mokokchung district president expressed confidence that BJP would win at least seven seats out of 10 seats in Mokokchung. To substantiate his statement, the president stated that BJP, as a national party, evaluate its poll result via assessment of enrollment drive and party strength.  

“If there is no seat sharing, then BJP would surely secure seven seats out of 10 seats in the district,” he claimed.

“As per the demand on no seat sharing, the party karyakartas have worked hard for five year and their works would be in vain. Therefore, it would be fair if we give tickets to the intending candidates,” the party official commented.

The BJP Mokokchung district general secretary also asserted that the karyakartas and the 10 mandals including Mangkolemba division are against 40:20 seat sharing module.

“As news came this morning from Kohima regarding no seat sharing, we will strongly support that demand,” he said adding if the demands are fulfilled the BJP Mokokchung district is ready to contest in all the ten seats.

Meanwhile, the 26 Aonglenden BJP AC also approached the BJP Mokokchung district demanding that as the highest BJP enrollment among the 10 assembly constituencies under Mokokchung, they deserved a party ticket to contest in the upcoming Nagaland assembly election scheduled on February 27.
