State BJP unit Thursday appreciated Joint Legislators’ Forum (JLF) for the proposed visit to Delhi on October 14 to meet Union Home minister in order to bring early solution to the Naga political issue. In a statement, state BJP unit vice president K. Medom Angami has termed the proposed visit as “good gesture”.
He said the JLF delegation comprising NPF and Congress legislators could now “take any decision” as Congress higher ups might have “endorsed” the party’s representation.
Ruing the fact that there was no unity for a solution, BJP state unit said Congress and NPF have the “same policy” to step down if an alternative arrangement was made.
The party has asked both the parties not to appease and confuse the Nagas anymore stating that meeting the central leaders “again and again” was an embarrassment to all Nagas.
It maybe mentioned that the 16-member JLF to visit Delhi led by chief minister Neiphiu Rio include– home minister Imkong L Imchen, minister medical health & family welfare Kuzholuzo Neinu, minister planning, vety. & AH T.R Zeliang, minister soil and water conservation P.
