Kohima: The Congress on Monday said it has decided to launch a “crusade” against the government in Nagaland from September 25 to share the people’s fear about the change in the state’s demography.
The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee, in a release, said it intends to “share the pains and fears of the public” that the demography of Nagaland may change in due course of time.
Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president K Therie, along with other leaders of the party, will kick start the movement from Dimapur, the release said.
“The Congress cannot change the government, neither can the Congress save Nagaland. The Congress can only voice the aspirations of the public while the power lies in the hands of the voters,” the NPCC said.
The release said the Congress does not have funds for the movement as it has been in the opposition for 18 years and appealed to the people to support the party through donations and contributions.
