BJP suspends members over move to defer Nagaland polls

Casting a shadow on assembly elections in Nagaland next month, 11 major parties, including the ruling Naga People's Front (NPF), its ally BJP and Congress, on Monday decided not to field any candidate in the polls until the Centre resolves the decades-old Naga problem. Not yet a formal call to boycott the upcoming Assembly election in Nagaland scheduled on February 27, but it has all the ingredients of political parties and voters staying away from the poll process. "... They are suspended immediately from the primary and active party membership; whatever they have signed is without the directives of the central leaders and so must be not considered as authentic and from the party", the BJP said in a release.

On the other hand, no political party will file nominations in accordance with the wishes of the people, said CCNTHCO in a statement.

A statement signed by Hukavi Yepthomi, "kilo kilonser" of the NSCN (IM); and Alezo Venuh, a member of the working committee of NNPGs - was issued on Sun. following a meeting among the groups and various Naga organisations at Hotel Saramati in Dimapur.

BJP state media cell convenor James Vizo said, "Although we have signed the joint declaration as an expression of solidarity with the core committee of tribal Hohos and civil society groups, everything will finally depend upon our national leadership".

The political parties stated that they want the peace process in Nagaland to arrive at a logical conclusion before the election process.

The Naga people would be compelled to take to the streets if the Election Commission went ahead and issued the official notification on January 31, he warned.

Earlier on 21 January, the Naga Hoho, an apex Naga tribal body, objected to the holding of elections in Nagaland before the insurgency issue in the state was resolved and indicated that it may ask political parties to boycott the polls.

Civil society groups in Nagaland have also launched a campaign "Solution before Election". "We believe that peaceful election in Nagaland will facilitate the talks", Rijiju reportedly said. "The course of our agitation depends on how the government of India reacts to the call of Naga NGOs for the solution (of the Naga issue), and not the election", said CCNTHCO convener Theja Therie. Following this, several socio-political organisations in the Hill State had appealed the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, to defer the Assembly elections till the peace talks reach its desired goal.
