BJP accuses Congress of destablising Govt in Nagaland
New Delhi, Dec 20 (UNI) Accusing the Congress of trying to destablise the coalition Government in Nagaland ahead of assembly elections in the state in February 2008, the BJP today said it seemed that it had not learnt any lesson from its ''misadventure'' in Jharkhand and Bihar.
Talking to newspersons, BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy referred to an abortive clandestine attempt made to dislodge the Government in Nagaland at the behest of UPA Government at the Centre "usurping all democratic norms and principles".
He reminded the Congress of the ''harsh'' indictment made by the High Court when it tried to bring down the constitutionally elected Governments in Jharkhand and Bihar, adding that it seemed that it was habitual for the Congress to indulge in toppling game.
He said the DAN Government was successfully completing its term of five years and the elections were round the corner in February. The Congress, fearing its defeat, was trying to dislodge the government and enforce President's Rule so that it could misuse government machinery in the elections.
"The contemptuous ganging up of Congressmen, defying the floor test where the majority has been proven and therefore rushing to Delhi, is a clear proof of their insatiable desire to grab power," he said.
The party also criticised the UPA Government's north-east policy as a result of which, it said, the whole region was in ''virtual political and social turmoil." The Chinese intrusion in Arunachal Pradesh, ULFA killings in Assam, rampant infiltration on the borders and strained ceasefire in Nagaland were some of the examples of its failures, the spokesman added.
