In the event of the BJP gaining power in the upcoming general election, the common people of the state will face not just the rise of communalism but also threaten the democratic values of secularism, freedom of speech, diversity, and integrity of the state, MPCC co-opted member of Saitu AC Lamtinthang Haokip said.

In his addressed Sokho George drew the attention of the executives of the district, blocks, Mahila Congress, Youth Congress of Sadar Hills and workers, supporters, and the general public of the district to take extra caution from the communal and religious agenda of the present BJP-led government in the centre and the state.
