In the name of protecting the interests of Christians, the BJP has strengthened its campaign in Nagaland.

Union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju said that the BJP has been fighting to protect the interests of Christians at the national level.

"Our opponents have nothing to say about us as we have tackled corruption and other issues, so they are now saying that we are 'anti-Christian'," said Rijiju.

To maintain his statement, he added, that he would leave politics if any church or any Christian in the state were persecuted during their reign.

"Though there are a large number of Christians in Arunachal Pradesh and in Goa, they elected the BJP, which speaks volumes about the party," he said, according to Asian Age.

He also said that BJP was very much aware of the Naga political issue and this election would shape the future of the state.

"PM Narendra Modi is very clear about the Naga struggle and has personally assured that it will be the BJP's moral duty to solve this problem during this tenure," he added.
