Taking strong exception to the allegations labeled by APCC on BJP of trying to convert the pristine hill state into a Hindu majority state, the State BJP President Tapir Gao advised the APCC to refrain from bringing religion into politics.
‘APCC has turned into loose cannon. Of late, it has been uttering non-sensical and gibberish words which doesn’t have any meaning or substance,’ said Gao while reminding Congress that BJP is a political organisation with deep rooted ideological belief in nation’s unity and integrity.
‘We know the long history of APCC that has been a catalyst in reducing the indigenous population,’ said Gao while reiterating that BJP has always stood for policies that supported preservation of indigenous population and its practices, tradition and culture.
Taking a dig at the Congress, he said, ‘For long Congress perpetuated the divide-rule policy but cancerous congress which is past its utility and relevance must understand that new age Indian or Arunachalees have understood the games that Congress indulge to fool the commoners.’
‘Sabka Haat, Sabka Vikas is the mantra of Modi led government and the state government under dynamic Chief Minister make all out effort in creating an inclusive government,’ Gao added.
While asserting its commitment to the ideology of “Antodaya”, Gao said, ‘As a political party, we welcome people from all walks of life into our party fold, without differentiating on the basis of the caste, colour, creed or religion. In truest sense, our nation shall become a powerful one once the last man in the queue is benefited.’
Further, he said that the interest of the nation has always come first for BJP, party next and individual interest has always been the last. ‘We welcome all those like-minded people who is willing to serve the nation,’ said Gao.
‘With open heart, we have welcomed all the legislators into our party fold and therefore it is natural that grass-root leaders are joining us and have expressed trust in Modiji and Khanduji’s leadership,’ Gao said.
