BJP leader and deputy chief minister, Y. Patton on Wednesday exuded confidence that the decades old Naga political issue would be resolved during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s second stint in office. 

Addressing a programme organized by the BJP State unit at Old DC Bungalow here on Wednesday to celebrate the return of BJP-led NDA, Patton reminded that it was under Modi’s able leadership and commitment that the Framework Agreement was signed between NSCN (I-M) and the Centre.

In his address, Patton also congratulated BJP central leaders led by Modi, leaders in charge of the North East and party workers for successful return of the party at the Centre. He maintained that India being a Hindu-majority country would cater to the interest of the community, irrespective of whichever party formed the government at the Centre, and appealed to BJP critics not to tag the party as being anti-Christian.

Patton announced that those party workers who deliver good service to the people would be rewarded, while calling for avoiding anything that could weaken the party.

BJP’s pre-poll agreement with NDPP intact: Along
State BJP president and minister Higher & Technical Education, Temjen Imna Along rebuffed all rumours about crisis within the PDA allies.
Along reaffirmed that the pre-poll agreement with NDPP was still intact and that it would be maintained for five years without any hitches. The same was echoed by Patton, assuring that the BJP was committed to the pre-poll alliance with NDPP and that there would not be any crisis till 2023. Patton said that the ruling coalition under the leadership of chief minister Neiphiu Rio would complete its full tenure and appealed to the workers not to be swayed by rumours.
Along therefore appealed to party workers and political parties not to spread rumours, but remain focused on strengthening the party.
He remarked that it was a momentous and historic occasion as all rumours and propagandas were laid to rest with the victory of BJP and congratulated Modi on the occasion.
Along also lauded Union Home minister Amit Shah for being able to penetrate the inner-most region of the country and laying rumours to rest, besides congratulating BJP leaders in charge of the Northeast and all party workers for the victory.
Calling for making the party stronger, the minister said workers must respect one another and take heed of one another’s advice and suggestions. He informed the gathering that the party would launch an extensive active and primary membership drive.
He also appealed to the BJP ministers, advisers and chairmen to listen to the voice of party workers and not to remain confined to their respective constituencies only.
Along urged the BJP legislators to follow deputy chief minister Y Patton who brought out a booklet listing what he had done for the people.
He said the booklet was testimony that BJP was not in Nagaland to destroy the people or their religion, but to stand with them.
In his brief address, Health & Family Welfare minister Pangnyu Phom asserted that the 12 BJP legislators in the State were united under the leadership of BJP Legislature Party leader and party president.
Speaking on the occasion, BJP Nagaland Minority Morcha general secretary Ankur Rai urged the State leaders to look into the affairs of the minority communities as it was observed that they were deprived of Central government’s minority schemes.
He requested them to set up a State minority commission for the welfare and benefit of the minority communities.
PHED minister Jacob Zhimomi, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, Bharatiya Janata Mahila Morcha, Bharatiya Janata Kisan Morcha leaders also spoke on the occasion. 
Nagaland Empowerment of People through Energy Development chairman Kevechutso Doulo too addressed the gathering, which was attended by party leaders from across the State.
