Nagaland BJP rejects charge of communal party

Nagaland BJP rejects charge of communal party

Kohima Feb 13 (UNI) The Nagaland unit of BJP has rejected the charge by Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) that it was a communal party on the ground that if it was so then the Election Commission of India (ECI) would not have recognised the party.
According to a release issued by the BJP unit media cell has pointed out that the secular character of the Constitution of India cannot be changed by any political party despite BJP currently enjoying absolute majority in parliament. Drawing attention on the recent letter of appeal from NBCC to Presidents of all political parties in Nagaland not to compromise “our religion” for the sake of development and political gain, BJP party said it appeared that religious polarisation seemed to be the strategy of some people in Nagaland during elections.
BJP was, however, quick to clarify that it did not blame NBCC, but alleged that there were few leaders at its helm who were trying to confuse the Nagas. BJP reminded that earlier the convener of NBCC’s Clean Election Campaign (CEC) had categorically stated that, as a responsible organisation, NBCC was not in support or against any political party. Therefore, BJP asked then why was it that some leaders were using the NBCC platform now to openly campaign against it (BJP)? By making the appeal, BJP asked has not NBCC contravened the CEC guidelines laid down.
