Dimapur, March 8 (EMN): Clearly buoyed by the political developments and realignments being orchestrated at the Centre, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) on Friday saw the return of seven veterans and 14 others from the Nagaland Congress.

During a programme to welcome the former members, veteran Congress leader and former chief minister of Nagaland, Dr. SC Jamir accused the regional parties of “bringing bankruptcy of governance and commercialisation of politics” to Nagaland.

Jamir said that materialism had blinded the Naga people to allow the BJP “to win an unprecedented 12 seats.” He said that the NPF is “already exhausted while NDPP is only a stop gap arrangement.”

Jamir—whom the NPCC had openly expelled from the party prior to the last Lok Sabha by-election in Nagaland—maintained that the Congress can “never be uprooted.”

According to an NPCC statement, the leaders returning to the fold include SI Jamir, Nillo Rengma, Z Lohe, Joshua Sumi, Dako Phom, Supongmeren, and Vaprumu Demo.
