He added that the party would also work on productivity and industrial development which is lacking in the state.

Wangham outlined the party’s focus on development, youth employment, healthcare, education, and combating the drug menace. He emphasized the goal of creating a drug-free society by raising awareness among addicts about the consequences of narcotics.

On February 25, two NPP legislators Mutchu Mithi from Roing constituency and Gokar Basar from Basar constituency,  joined the BJP.

Responding to recent shifts in political alliances, where two NPP legislators joined the BJP, Wangham said “Their joining BJP will have no impact as NPP has extended support to the BJP government in the state being an ally of the NEDA,” Wangham added.

The ruling BJP in the state has 53 MLAs followed by Congress and NPP with two each. There are also three independent members.
