BJP-NDPP alliance is a boon for BJP, says Alemtemshi
Mokokchung Feb. 7 (EMN): Former chief secretary of Nagaland and current working president of the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) Alemtemshi Jamir filed his nomination at two constituencies namely the 24th Angetyongpang and 25th Mongoya in Mokokchung district.
Talking exclusively with Eastern Mirror, the former bureaucrat exuded confidence about winning from the two constituencies stating that it was the ‘will and voice of the people’ that compelled him to contest from both the constituencies.
When asked about the NDPP party’s manifesto, Jamir said it will be made known in a week’s time but the core point of it centres on bringing good governance and amiable solution to the vexed Naga political solution.
“Unlike the NPF (Naga People’s Front) government, under whose policy the guise of equi-closeness has divided the Naga society further, we have vowed not to make those mistakes,” he said.
Talking about the Bharatiya Janata Party-NDPP pre-poll alliance in the present Nagaland political situation, he said that the BJP party had severed ties with the NPF as they had no alternative but to support the NDPP to come to power.
“People are critical of the present NPF-led government and their performance; and this has led to a big call for change by our people, from our people; and the BJP coming to an agreement with NDPP for pre-poll alliance is somewhat a boon for their party.”
