In preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2024, the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) will reportedly conduct mass rallies across districts, starting on 5 April from Mokokchung and extending to all districts thereafter.

NDPP Working President, N Bendang Jamir, told Mokokchung Times how the party has begun their preparation for the Lok Sabha with the launch of their campaign on 25 March. Expressing confidence in the NDPP-BJP alliance’s prospects against Nagaland Congress and an Independent candidate, Jamir remarked, “Fighting with the 60 MLAs is no easy task.”

Addressing inquiries regarding the potential impact of the Congress’ secularism campaign, particularly in light of their alliance with the BJP, Jamir asserted, “It is unlikely to affect our vote share.” According to Jamir, “Nagaland plays politics differently,” while adding, “None of the parties forming the Government of India are founded on religious principles.” He acknowledged perceptions linking BJP to religion due to certain extremists but underscored the party’s commitment to secularism.

“From what I’ve heard, there are some extremists doing extreme things, but that is not what BJP as a party advocates or advises,” added the working president.

Answering why people should vote for NDPP, Jamir underscored the crucial link between government stability and developmental progress adding that only when a government is stable, there will be development. He also expressed his satisfaction towards the achievement made by the NDPP over the past decade.

Addressing allegations of unequal distribution of resources, particularly with regards to accusations of partiality against the Chief Minister, Jamir adamantly refuted such claims. “We don’t see it like that,” he said, adding, “In fact, even if a good portfolio is designated to a particular minister, if the minister does not perform their duties, development won’t occur.”

“It depends a lot on how the ministers explore themselves and work for the development,” he added.
