Dimapur, Feb 24 (UNI) BJP national president Rajnath Singh has stressed upon the importance of unity among all sections of Nagas and holding dialogues to bring about peace in the state.
Mr Singh, who is also an MP from Uttar Pradesh, arrived here for campaigning in support of BJP candidates ahead of the March five Assembly elections.
The BJP president told newspersons at a press conference yesterday that all Nagas should remain united and hold dialogues to bring about peace in the state.
He alleged that the state had remained underdeveloped and the Congress, which had ruled the state for the past 45 years, did nothing for the development of the people here.
Referring to the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre, Mr Singh said, ''The Centre's package for the people of the state has been President's Rule, whereas the then BJP-led NDA government, during its tenure, had given a package of Rs 1,000 crore for the all-round development of the state.'' Regarding the prevailing situation in the state, the BJP chief alleged that during the Congress regime, the situation had been going out of control with each passing day.
In a scathing attack on the Congress, Mr Singh alleged that the party had been helping infiltrators, which could pose a great threat to the national security.
Underlining the need to have a non-Congress government in Nagaland, the MP claimed that the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre was losing its base fast and asserted that the BJP-led NDA would come back to power in the next general elections.
