Narendra Modi on Thursday said that a BJP-NDPP government in Nagaland would plug the loopholes causing wastage of public money and work towards improving road connectivity in the state.
Modi said Nagaland needed a strong and stable government to work for development.
“My vision for the Northeast is transformation by transportation,” he said during an election meeting at Tuensang, about 360 kilometres from here, according to the official Twitter account of the BJP Nagaland.
On August 3, 2015, the Centre and the National Socialist Council of Nagaland (Issac-Muivah) had signed a Framework Agreement to end the seven-decade-old insurgency. Last year, the government had signed an agreement with a Working Committee of six Naga national political groups.
In January, the Core Committee of Nagaland Tribal Hohos and Civil Organisations had urged the Election Commission to defer the Assembly elections till a solution to the protracted Naga insurgency was found.
Eleven political parties in Nagaland had also decided not to issue tickets or file nominations to press for an early solution to the seven-decade-old insurgency.
Modi said the National Democratic Alliance government is giving special priority to the northeast and making efforts to enhance prosperity in the region. “Our government is committed to ensure all-round development of the northeastern states”, he said.
