    Church Veto Had No Impact In Meghalaya And Nagaland

    The church appealed to the voters to make a choice between the cross and the trishul.

    And they have voted overwhelmingly against communal politics.

    Church Veto Had No Impact In Meghalaya And Nagaland

    The most significant takeaway from the results of the just-concluded polls in Nagaland and Meghalaya is that the electorate cared little for the vicious communal propaganda unleashed by the Church – in collaboration with the Congress – against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its allies. In the run-up to the polls, the church in both Nagaland and Meghalaya had appealed to the electorate against voting for the BJP and its allies, saying that the party had a “hidden agenda” of forcing the Christians (who form an overwhelming majority in both the states) to convert to Hinduism.

    The church issued written appeals (read this article) in Nagaland, and oral ones in Meghalaya, raising the bogey of Hindutva and saying that the two Christian states would be forcibly converted into Hindu states. It appealed to the voters to make a choice between the cross and the trishul. The propaganda unleashed by the church, backed by the Congress, was vicious and highly communal.
    But, as the results have showed, the electorate did not fall for the church and Congress propaganda. The BJP won eleven of the 20 seats it contested in Nagaland, while its pre-poll ally, the Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP), won 18 seats.
