BJP & its NDA partners heading towards election with new-confidence: Chuba Ao

Dimapur, April 12 (MExN): The National Vice-President of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), M Chuba Ao on Friday asserted that the BJP and its NDA partners, including NDPP in Nagaland, are heading towards this year's election with a new-confidence. “We are set for an epoch-making progress in all spheres,” Ao said in a press statement. 

On India’s development journey in the last decade, Ao stated that it has been “unique and unprecedented” and some infrastructural developments are “game-changers.”

The last decade under Prime Minister Narendra Modi saw the Sagarmala project which enhanced the capacity of ports and improved the operational efficiency, he stated. Moreover, in connection to North East, the National Highways network increased 60%, from 91,287 kilometers in 2014 to 146,145 kilometers in 2023 while the number of airports increased from 74 in 2014 to over 150 in 2024, he added.  
Applauding Narendra Modi for giving an elaborate interview to New York-based magazine ‘Newsweek’, Ao said his attention was drawn to the PM’s remarks on inclusive growth, foreign policy vis-a-vis Quad and also on border dispute with China.

Ao said that PM was right in pointing out that India’s relationship with China is important and significant. “He also rightly said that both sides need to urgently address the prolonged situation on our borders so that the abnormality in our bilateral interactions can be put behind us.” 

The BJP National Vice President said that he agreed with the PM’s view that stable and peaceful relations between India and China are important for not just our two countries but the entire region and world. ‘He has laid emphasis on constructive bilateral engagement at the diplomatic and military levels andit is true only by these we can achieve a sustained peace and tranquilities in our borders,’ Ao noted. 
In regard to the recent claim of Chine that it has ‘named or renamed’ some parts of Arunachal Pradesh, Ao said, “Such things do not make much sense as China also understands the growing importance of India in world polity.”

“The Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi has rightly rejected any such drama staged by China calling these senseless attempts to rename places in Arunachal Pradesh,” the BJP National Vice-President added.
