Zunheboto, February 8 (MExN): The BJP’s 34 Aghunato A/C office has been dissolved following the en masse resignation of office bearers and party workers, according to a press release from the unit’s president Kakiye Yepthomi and general secretary Hevukhu.
The move comes as a response to the central BJP’s seat sharing agreement with the NDPP.
“The Party workers, most of whom have made untold sacrifices for the party since the past 4-5 years has lost faith against the State’s party leadership and is aggrieved of the insult meted out to the grassroot party workers for its unjust and irrational decision of the pre-poll alliance made with the NDPP without taking their voice and consent both at the mandal level and the District level,” the party’s 34 Aghunato A/C stated.
“The BJP Aghunato party workers felt that this wrongful decision was made only to satisfy the selfish interests of some vested Leaders and not for the interest of the Party,” it added.
As such, the office bearers and party workers resolved to disassociate from the BJP and further extended its unflinching support to the NPF, and in particular, the party candidate for 34 Aghunato Hukiye N. Tissica.
“The then 34 Aghunato BJP Party workers is fully confident that Nagas under their leadership will bring fruitful changes and all round development in the state.”
