In this regard, he said that the Lok Sabha election is the best opportunity for the electorate of Jangpetkong AC to reiterate their strong and unwavering support to the ruling government by electing the PDA consensus candidate with an unprecedented margin.

He asserted that the votes will be the ‘certification’ of the people’s support towards the NDPP and PDA government and allow him to voice out with more confidence while seeking developmental works for the constituency.

While lamenting that the constituency was reeling under neglect and non-development, the advisor urged the voters not to be swayed by cheap propaganda about anti-Christian rhetoric.

He pointed out that even the previous MLA from the constituency was elected on a BJP ticket, yet there are no evidences of any adverse influence upon one’s religion or lifestyle.

NDPP working president, N. Bendang Jamir, asserted that Dr. Murry is the contesting the election as the NDPP candidate to safeguard the rights, and to carry forth the aspirations of the Naga people.

He said that the NDPP is a regional party and as a regional party, it will never compromise with the rights of the Naga people.

On the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), the Free Movement Regime and border fencing issues, Jamir pointed out that the state government had categorically raised the issue with the central government.

Through the efforts of the NDPP-led government, he said the Centre has exempted Nagaland from the CAA; the state government also passed a resolution against the border fencing and abrogation of the FMR, he said.

Claiming that the Rio-led government has never done anything against the interests of the Naga people, he asserted that the NDPP will always stand for safeguarding the rights and aspirations of the Naga people. 

The NDPP working president also berated the church leaders for using the pulpit to tacitly propagate to the people that voting for the PDA consensus candidate would be voting for ‘anti-Christian party.’

He denounced “propaganda” and asserted that religion and politics should never mix. He maintained that the NDPP had to have an alliance with the BJP since it is ruling in the Centre and that a small state like Nagaland should always have good relations with the party running the central government.  President of NDPP Mokokchung Region, Mangyangnungba maintained that the winning margin or percentage of votes cast for Dr. Murry would be crucial for the state government to determine the allocation of developmental works in the state. He cautioned that if the constituency failed to perform properly in this election, then the benevolence of the government towards the constituency would be lessened and the people would miss out on major developmental activities.

The two-day campaign trail covered all the villages under the constituency including Khar, Chungliyimsen, Mongchen, Dibuia, Waromung, Merayim and Longnak, and Changki, and two administrative towns (Alongkima and Mangolemba). The NDPP party units under 29 Jangpetkong AC also assured that they would work tirelessly to ensure that the PDA consensus candidate win with a landslide majority.
