Protect Arunachal's unique identity : Tuki

Itanagar
8 Oct 2018

Senior Congress leader in Arunachal Pradesh, Nabam Tuki Saturday exhorted the Congress cadres to adopt do and die mantra to protect the unique identity of the state and its people. It is time to work out a strategy under the Congress to "wipe out" BJP from the state to protect its indigenous identity, he told a Congress meeting held here to discuss strategies for the 2019 Lok Sabha and state assembly poll. Assembly poll in the BJP-ruled north eastern state is due in 2019.
"Our identity is under threat ... It is time to work out a foolproof strategy under the leadership of Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Takam Sanjoy to wipe out BJP to protect the indigenous identity of this protected state and also for the all out development of the land-locked state," Tuki, the two-time chief minister said.
Congress symbolizes sacrifice for the society, the state and nation, he said asked the party's frontal organizations like Arunachal Pradesh Mahila Congress, Arunachal Pradesh Youth Congress and NSUI to struggle peacefully for the purpose.
Sanjoy asked party cadre to create awareness of ruling BJP's actions which, he claimed, are having damaging effects on the state. Describing BJPs principles as "destructive", he said it is leading to "psychological and spiritual dereliction" of the people. Congress, he claimed, would give a befitting reply in 2019 political battle by capturing 33 of the total 60 assembly seats. PTI
