‘Has not come across any persecution against Christians in Nagaland’

Dimapur, May 19 (EMN): The Nagaland unit of the Baharatiya Janata party (BJP) continues to assert itself to be a “secular party.” It is a party that “focuses on development” and one that “stands against corruption and work hard to make India corruption free,” the media cell of the Nagaland BJP declared in a press release on Friday.
“The BJP Nagaland’s attention has been drawn by the recent allegation to fool and mislead the common people in the state by the Indian National Congress,” the party stated. “The BJP is a secular political party and focuses on development and development for all under the theme ‘Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas.’ The BJP stands against corruption and work hard to make India corruption free.”“Any political party cannot act” or go against the Constitution of India, the BJP explained. ‘The Constitution of India guarantees every citizen the right to choose one’s own religion or faith. The Government of India have already clarified that it does not impose the National Language ‘Hindi’ on any state against their wishes,’ the party claimed.
The BJP unit stated further that the unit for Nagaland was formed in 1991. “Since then the BJP has not come across any persecutions against Christians in Nagaland. The party has only been focusing on the development of the state. The people of Nagaland are the best judge. The BJP recognizes the uniqueness of the Nagas.”
The party declared further that the All India Congress Committee’s secretary In-charge of Nagaland Dr. Jaya Kumar “openly confesses the misrule of Congress party in Nagaland as well as the nation.”
So, the BJP stated, “how can he claim that other political parties including BJP ruling Nagaland will be ‘land of satan’? The Congress party’s policy is family politics, divide and rule. The Congress party is the mother of all corruptions in governmental activities, luring electoral politics with corrupt money and cheap propagandas which led the Nation into scams and scandals during the Congress rule over five decades.’
