Dimapur District Congress Committee’s tour continues
Dimapur, Feb. 22 (EMN): The district tour programme of the Dimapur District Congress Committee (DDCC) entered the second day on Friday with the members meeting the party workers and public at Purana Bazar ‘B’ under 3 Dimapur III A/C.
The Dimapur unit of the Congress party launched its district tour on February 21 at the Singrijan Council Hall located in the district.
Addressing the public and the party workers, DCC president Bendangyanger urged them to work hard for victory. He further stressed on the need to set up the booth for workers at the earliest and encouraged the party workers to “visit house to house to spread the ideology of Congress,” according to an update from DDCC media cell. He also claimed that lots of schemes from the centre that are meant for the public do not reach the masses.
Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) secretary Akavi N Zhimomi alleged that the “entire country and especially the Northeast is suffering under the rule of the BJP-led government.” He said the freedom of speech guaranteed by the constitution is suppressed and curtailed by the Government and any dissent is considered as an act of sedition.
He encouraged the party workers not to be demoralised but work selflessly for the victory of the party. He also reminded the party workers not to expect anything from the party, but instead work hard for the uplift of the party, said an update from DDCC.
Zhimomi claimed that the opposition under the leadership of Congress party president Rahul Gandhi thwarted BJP’s attempt to pass the Citizenship Amendment Bill. He said that unless the people have clear concept about the Congress party, the entire campaign will be futile.
He exhorted the party workers to be well equipped with the ideology of the Congress and it is confident of coming back to power though it presently does not have even a single MLA or MP in Nagaland.
NPCC secretary Temjenyanger (no surname given) told the gathering that the people of India had put their trust and given their mandate to the Congress for more than 50 years and that it was able to bounce back to power because of its workers. He said that there are only two national parties — Congress and BJP — that can lead the country and the people have given opportunity to both but Indians have “realised their mistake of electing BJP to power.”
DMCC president Sentila (no surname given) also addressed the gathering.
